The Memorial Weekend festival is bringing huge names to the Twin Cities.

Some of the biggest names in hip-hop have been announced for the Soundset Festival that also has plenty on offer for nostalgic fans.

Presented by Rhymesayers, the May 27 festival at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds will feature top-billers Migos, Logic, Erykah Badu and Minneapolis natives Atmosphere.

But it's further down the lineup that things start getting a bit more fun, with DJ Jazzy Jeff and Will Smith's son Jaden on the bill.

Is a kinda-Fresh Prince revival on the cards? After all, Jazzy Jeff and Will Smith did reunite for a handful of festivals last year.

They're joined by hip-hop legends including Ice-T and Wu-Tang Clan, which in 2018 marks 25 years since the release of its debut album Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).

The mega-fest will sprawl across the fairgrounds' Midway area on Memorial Day weekend.

You can get first refusal at tickets by signing up to the Rhymesayers newsletter here. 

Further ticket information can be found here.
