The cultural event that takes place in Philadelphia will take place June 4-5 in Fairmount Park at The Mann.  

Other performers include Keyshia Cole, Mickey Guyton, SWV, Freddie Gibbs, Robert Glasper & Bilal, Tierra Whack and Kirk Franklin, just to name a few. The Roots Picnic will also include live podcasting with Rory & Mal, Jemele Hill, Questlove, and eight additional podcasting acts.  

“This year, Black Thought, Questlove and I attempted to curate a lineup that broke through the genre barriers that often separate us in Black culture,” reads a statement from The Roots manager, Shawn Gee. “To be able to book Mickey Guyton, Kirk Franklin, G Herbo, Wizkid, Wallo & Gillie, and Mary J. Blige on the same lineup is a dream come true.”  

Tickets for the two-day event can be found here.
