    The legendary Roots crew will throw their annual Roots Picnic this May.

    The event is returning to Philadelphia's Festival Pier at Penn's Landing on Saturday, May 30 for the biggest event yet.

    The festival is celebrating its eighth year with an eclectic lineup over THREE stages boasting performances by: The Weeknd, Phantogram, Erykah Badu (backed by The Roots), A$AP Rocky, Hiatus Kaiyote and more.

    "The Picnic in Philly is always an event that we look forward to," said Maverick's Shawn Gee, The Roots manager and executive producer of the festival. "It continues to get larger each year and the addition of the third stage and the increased size of the footprint will allow us to significantly increase the number of fans that get the chance to attend this year. The lineup is a diverse mix of great bands that will deliver a great musical experience to our hometown crowd."

    Huzzah!
