For six days in April, Soul'd Out Music Festival fills venues across Portland with an eclectic mix of R&B, soul, funk and hip-hop.
This week, the festival announced the preliminary lineup for its 10th iteration. This year's headliners are recently reunited Golden Age rappers Eric B. and Rakim, blues legend Buddy Guy and smooth funk hitmakers Tower of Power.
The currently released lineup may not be as zeitgeist-y as pervious years—Erykah Badu and Noname played last year, Solange the year before that. But it does offer a solid mix of national and local legends and buzzy wild cards. Besides, it's only the preliminary lineup, so it's possible that there will be more exciting announcements on the horizon.
Soul'd Out will take place April 16-21. Passes are on sale now.
