But now comes good news courtesy of Soundset Festival organizers, who announced their 2013 lineup earlier today. Billed as the world’s “biggest (and best) indie rap festival,” this year’s nine-hour event will feature headliners Atmosphere and Snoop Dogg, as well as performances by Brother Ali, Tech N9ne, Mac Miller, Busta Rhymes, Blueprint, P.O.S., and Aesop Rock with Rob Sonic & DJ Big Wiz.
Better still, among the three dozen artists listed on the festival poster is none other than Colorado Springs hip-hop duo the ReMinders.
Now in its sixth year, Soundset will take place May 26 at Canterbury Park, located a half-hour outside Minneapolis. With some 20,000 hip-hop fans attending last year’s festival, this latest ReMinders coup represents just one more step in Colorado rap’s slow but inevitable march to world domination. Or, at least, that’s what we’re hoping.
Meanwhile, for those with a sense of history, here's a clip of the Reminders playing Harlem's Apollo Theater a few years back.
