This weekend we're headed down to Philly with the whole Okayplayer fam for the 8th annual Roots Picnic. We had such a good time celebrating Africa Day with the Everyday People massive that we thought who better to join us than EP NYC host and star caterer Chef Roblé Ali.
Stay tuned to Okayafrica's Instagram this Saturday, May 30th, as Roblé takes over our feed all day from the Festival Pier, and look out for special appearances from Erykah Badu, Questlove, Black Thought and the legendary Roots crew, The Weeknd, Moses Sumney, A$AP Rocky, Afrika Bambaataa, King Britt, Hiatus Kaiyote, Raury, Phantogram, Chronixx, Bishop Nehru, Hudson Mohawke, Rae Sremmurd (fresh off the release of their Joburg music video), DJ Mustard, Arcade Fire's Win Butler and more of our favorite picnicgoers!
