Celebrating its thirteenth-year anniversary, the Roots Picnic returns to the Mann at Fairmount Park on Saturday, May 30. The festival grounds will include 3 stages of music, gaming, art, and dialogue.
This year's festival will feature performances from Philadelphia’s own Meek Mill, as well as Summer Walker, DaBaby, Snoh Aalegra, Burna Boy, Thundercat, and many more. There will be heavy emphasis on collaboration and creativity as The Roots present a curated set celebrating R&B music, titled The Roots Present SOUL, with special guests Brandy, SWV, and Musiq Soulchild who’s celebrating the 20th anniversary of his seminal album Aijuswanaseing. Additionally, an annual highlight, Black Thought and J Period’s “Live Mixtape” will feature breakout Buffalo-based rappers Griselda, as well as Wu Tang Clan members Ghostface and Raekwon. Another curation will feature Meshell Ndegeocello: Reimagining Prince and This Thing Called Life. The live podcast experience returns and will include episodes of Around the Way Curls Podcast, The Read, and Questlove Supreme as well as CRWN with Elliott Wilson.
Roots Picnic continues to align with music and culture, and remains known for its careful curation that unites music’s hottest acts, influencers, tastemakers, and thought leaders for one unforgettable day—and this year proudly continues that tradition.
