The Roots have just revealed the lineup for this year’s Roots Picnic, which will take place on Saturday, June 4, at Festival Pier in Philadelphia. The headliners for the festival, now in its ninth year, are Usher, backed by The Roots, Future and Leon Bridges. Other artists on the Roots Picnic 2016 lineup include The Roots (naturally, since it’s their picnic after all), Blood Orange, Anderson.Paak and the Free Nationals, Swizz Beatz, DMX, Ibeyi, Kaytranada, Migos, Kehlani, Jidenna, Lolawolf, Lil Dicky, and many others. See the full lineup at the festival website.
