Over the years, the Roots Picnic has become one of the best Hip Hop festivals to go to and this year’s lineup is looking quite solid as well.
The festival will return to Philly’s The Mann Center in the final weekend in May (May 30-31) and be headlined by Meek Mill, DaBaby and Summer Walker. SiR, Burna Boy, Snoh Aalegra, Baby Rose, Thundercat, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah, Griselda, Brandy, Musiq Soulchild, Phony Ppl and DJ Diamond Kuts are some of the other acts taking the stage.
The festival grounds will include 3 stages of music, gaming, art and dialogue featuring live podcast experience with episodes of Around the Way Curls Podcast, The Read and Questlove Supreme as well as CRWN with Elliott Wilson. See the full lineup below.
“Always a highlight of the year, The Roots Picnic continues to grow and solidify itself as a cornerstone of Philadelphia culture”, says Shawn Gee, President of Live Nation Urban and Roots manager and co-founder of the event. “This year we are presenting a few special collaborative sets, one specifically with the Roots celebrating R&B music, with some legendary artists. Personally, I am excited that Meek Mill will grace the Roots Picnic stage this year, as this is the only major event in our hometown that he hasn’t played yet. We are also excited to be back at the Mann Center in Fairmount Park and looking forward to another great year”.
Tickets for the event will be available Friday at noon here.
