Soundset 2018 is coming back to the State Fairgrounds.

Rhymesayers Entertainment made it official in an announcement Thursday, with a date of May 27, 2018.

Their third year at the site, this 11th installment of Soundset comes as something of a surprise. Many people took seriously some of the artists' on-stage banter last year, where they joked it was the final Soundset.

Soundset 2017 (check out our photo gallery here) boasted the largest year-to-year growth in the festival's history. While no artists have been announced yet for 2018, it's already made Memorial Day weekend 2018 something to look forward to.
