Usher, The Roots, Future, Leon Bridges, Blood Orange, Jidenna, Ibeyi & More Playing Roots Picnic 2016

The 9th annual Roots Picnic returns to Philly this summer, watch Broad City's Ilana and Abbi introduce this year's amazing lineup.


The 9th annual Roots Picnic festival, curated by our very own Roots crew, is set to take place this summer on June 4 at Philly’s Festival Pier.

The headliners this year will be Usher backed by The Roots, Future, and Leon Bridges, with additional performances from a prime lineup that includes Blood Orange, Kaytranada, Swizz Beatz, DMX, Kehlani, Migos, Willow Smith, Lolawolf, Metro Boomin and many more.

The day’s festivities will also feature Okayafrica darlings Jidenna, Ibeyi, Everyday People featuring DJ Moma, and Rich Medina.

Watch a hilarious video of Broad City’s Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson mapping out their plan of attack to catch all the Roots Picnic acts. They’re fond of Jidenna, Ibeyi, and Lolawolf’s Zoë Kravitz (obviously, Abbi).

Tickets for the festival go on sale February 5 at noon at the Roots Picnic website.
