  /  02.02.2016

The Roots are bringing the stars to Philly. The Roots Picnic is back for the ninth year with a star-studded roster that includes Future, Leon Bridges, and Usher, who will be backed by the Legendary Crew.

This year’s lineup, which was announced by Broad City, also includes DMX, Swizz Beatz, Kehlani, Jidenna, Migos, Lil Dicky, and Willow Smith, who will all hit the Festival Pier in Philadelphia on Saturday, June 4. Billed as the “biggest Roots Picnic yet,” the 23 performances will take place across three stages.

“We are excited that the Picnic is growing each year,” said Roots Picnic co-founder Shawn Gee. “We are laser focused on building an amazing fan experience and continuing to build a diverse lineup that matches the collective tastes and interests of the curators, Questlove and Black Thought of the Legendary Roots Crew. This year is going to be a lot of fun!”

Last year’s lineup included The Weeknd, Erykah Badu, A$AP Rocky, Rae Sremmurd, and DJ Mustard, while John Legend, Janelle Monáe, Nas, Kid Cudi, and Public Enemy have performed in previous years.

Tickets go on sale Friday, Feb. 5 at noon. Check out the full lineup below.
