The legendary Roots crew have been hard at work, and unless you’re under the much mentioned rock, they have been everywhere in the last few years. They recently won three Grammy’s, you can see them every weeknight on NBC’s Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and each of them are either doing recording sessions, club dates, DJ sets, and on and on and on. Four years ago they started out what they wanted to make an annual event, and the Roots Picnic will happen again with a big show happening in their hometown of Philadelphia on June 4th.
Some of the people scheduled to appear include Nas, Esperanza Spalding, Wiz Khalifa, Little Dragon, Mac Miller, and of course The Roots. I have a funny feeling a few more guests will be announced, but for now, these artists are set in stone. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am Eastern through LiveNation.
