The Roots have announced their 8th annual picnic and it’s set to be their biggest one yet. Returning to Philly’s Festival Pier on May 30th, the hiphop/neosoul band will be headlining with someone of the biggest in today’s music. Being backed by Erykah Badu on their set, the band will also be sharing the stage with The Weeknd, A$AP Rocky, Phantogram, Rae Sremmurd, Afrika Bambaataa, Hudson Mohawke, DJ Windows 98 (aka Arcade Fire’s Win Butler), Bishop Nehru, Raury, DJ Mustard and many more.
18 artists are set to embark three stages, May 30th. Tickets for the event are set to go on sale March 13 at 12 PM.
Here’s what Questlove told exclusively told Billboard:
I am looking forward to seeing the discovery process. That is what excites me each year. Seeing someone who bought a ticket for one act, discover the music of an unexpected artist. I’m sure there will be some A$AP Rocky fans that will dig Hiatus Kaiyote or some Weeknd fans that will discover Chronixx and vice versa.
