For year five, The Legendary Philly Roots Crew and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon house band is going big for their annual summer picnic.
The 5th Annual Roots Picnic, to be held at the Festival Pier at Penn’s Landing, is expanding from a day to full weekend affair to be held the weekend of June 2 and 3, and they’re bringing out the stars.
Among the highlights, The Roots will of course be the headliners, but they’re also including Kid Cudi, James Murphy (of LCD Soundsystem), Wale, Philly native Diplo and more. And the big surprise: American hip hop trio De La Soul, backed by the roots. For a full list of the performers, check out the flyer that Ahmir '?Questlove' Thompson tweeted earlier Thursday.
