    The legendary Roots crew announced their annual Roots Picnic is returning to Philadelphia's Festival Pier at Penn's Landing on Saturday, June 1. The festival is celebrating its sixth year with an eclectic lineup over two stages that Roots Picnic fans have come to expect – boasting performances by: Gary Clark, Jr., Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and a show-stopping set with Naughty by Nature backed by The Roots.

    Last year's Roots Picnic was a sold-out success. This year will again bring the eclectic flavor of the best that music has to offer.

    In previous years, performers at The Roots Picnic have included the likes of The Black Keys, John Legend, members of Wu-Tang Clan, TV on the Radio, Vampire Weekend, Public Enemy, Santigold, Gnarls Barkley, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Nas and many more. So you know when they announce the full lineup, you are in for a good time.
