The 5th Annual Roots Picnic is approaching more rapidly than a redneck trucker. The best summer-jam since Freaknik ’89 is going down in the festival pier at Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia, PA on June 2 and 3. Don’t believe us? Maybe this clip from last year’s picnic will refresh your memory. Here’s what you need to know:
De La Soul, Wale, Kid Cudi, and Rakim are the headliners, along with The Roots, of course. Plus a gangload of other amazing performers (check the flyer for the full list), so yeah…it’s gonna be all the way LIIIVE!!!
Purchase your tickets soon (like, now?) via Ticketmaster.
