Backstage at the 2013 Soundset Music Festival

Sign Logo Lighter Mass Appeal Dragons

Mass Appeal was fortunate enough to be in attendance for this year’s Soundset Music Festival which took place this past Memorial Day Weekend in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Needless to say, the popular festival–whose headliners included Atmosphere and Snoop Dogg–brought out some big names. Our own Jason Goldwatch was in attendance for the event and captured some amazing behind-the-scenes photos featuring a real noteworthy cast of characters. See how many you can identify before their respective captions beat you to it. A big thank you to Rhymesayers for the access and support!

Stay tuned for our exclusive video coverage of the festival dropping real soon.
