    The Roots will lay out the blanket and the basket for their fifth annual Roots Picnic, which will take place in Philadelphia over the June 2 and 3 weekend, which is a Saturday and Sunday.

    There will be two stages for a variety of musical acts.

    The Roots will headline on Saturday, along with De La Soul (backed by the Roots), a James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem) DJ set, Wale and St. Vincent. Kid Cudi will headline on Sunday with Major Lazer, Chill Moody and more.

    Hey, Philadelphians, you going? We'd love to see Will Smith come back and hang!
