The Roots announced the line-up and date for its ninth-annual Roots Picnic. Set for June 9 at Philadelphia’s Festival Pier, the show will be headlined by Future, Usher (backed by The Roots), and Leon Bridges.
Other acts on the bill include Kehlani, DMX, Migos, Willow Smith, Lil Dicky, and Metro Boomin among others.
“We are excited that the Picnic is growing each year,” said co-founder Shawn Gee. “For the second year in a row we have reconfigured the Picnic site to maximize the amount of people that can attend. We are laser focused on building an amazing fan experience and continuing to build a diverse lineup that matches the collective tastes and interests of the curators, Questlove and Black Thought of the Legendary Roots Crew. This year is going to be a lot of fun!”
