Going into its 10th year, Rhymesayers' Soundset has grown into what organizers say is the biggest one-day hip-hop festival in the world.

And the 2017 lineup for the May 28 event, which was announced Wednesday morning, is another example of how big it's gotten.

Some of the big confirmed acts for Soundset 2017 include Travis Scott, Gucci Mane, T.I., Atmosphere, Ms. Lauryn Hill and Mac Miller.

Also on the list (and it's long, so stick with us):

Kevin Gates, Lil Uzi Vert, Pusha T, Brother Ali, D.R.A.M., Ty Dolla $ign, P.O.S, the stand4rd (Allan Kingdom, Bobby Raps, Psymun, Spooky Black), Dr. Octagon (Kool Keith and Dan the Automator), Aminé, Talib Kweli, Denzel Curry, Mod Sun, Pete Rock, Dave East, 070 Shake, Sa-Roc, ZULUZULUU, Invisbl Skratch Piklz (Q Bert, D-Styles, Shortkut), Peanut Butter Wolf, Stretch and Bobbito, Nazeem & Spencer Joles, Oswin Benjamin, Sophia Eris, J.

Sway Calloway will reprise his role as the main stage master of ceremonies.

Update: Soundset later put out stage times for all the performers. Here's a look at when everyone is going on:

Soundset will be at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds once again, after moving to the St. Paul site last year. Organizers say 32,000 people attended the 2016 festival, coming from all 50 states and 19 different countries.

GoMN will have a special presale for general admission and VIP tickets Thursday from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. – the password and details to get in on that are here.

General Admission tickets are $78. VIP tickets (which are 18+) run $198. You can get tickets online here, or buy them in store at Fifth Element.

Rhymesayers says in addition to the 40-plus musical acts, there will be "artists live painting, skateboard demos and a custom car show."
