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."
