    The Roots have announced the complete lineup of their second-annual "Roots Picnic." Set to hit Philadelphia's Festival Pier on June 6, the all-day affair (from 2-11 p.m.) will feature DJ sets by Cash Money and Jazzy Jeff and live performances by The Black Keys, Santigold, TV on the Radio and Public Enemy, who'll perform their classic It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back LP with the help of Antibalas and the Roots themselves.

    About the event's hosts, they'll open and close the "Picnic" with full sets of their own. And a second stage will bring out such acts as Busdriver, Kid Cudi and Asher Roth. For complete details, head here.
