Every year, hip-hop heads of the Twin Cities, come together to celebrate our scene's rich history of hip-hop music at a music festival known as Soundset. The event has grown from its' roots at the Metrodome, to a recently relocated space at Canterbury in Shakopee, MN. Numerous rap/hip-hop acts perform throughout the day as thousands of spectators have the opportunity to check out vendor booths, DJ tents & even a skateboard ramp event.
For the third year, Familia Skateshop has setup shop at Soundset, with a mini-ramp and new for this year - a four block and handrail contest. Skateboarders have the opportunity to skate the ramp for the day, but the real action kicks off when the actual Showdown contest begins. We documented the days' madness in this montage below, so take a view (Additional filming by Kyle Henkler).
