The Festival

Now in its seventh year, The Roots Picnic is bigger and better than ever with a day of incredible and diverse music at the Festival Pier at Penn’s Landing. With acts spanning multiple genres, all handpicked by The Roots themselves, this is one festival not to be missed.

With a reputation as the hardest working band in music, The Roots are not only the house band for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, but also a group that delivers amazing musical lineups for marquee Philadelphia events like The Roots Picnic and the Welcome America 4th of July concert.

Performances at this year’s Roots Picnic include Snoop Dogg (backed by The Roots), Janelle Monae, A$AP Ferg and Philadelphia’s own War on Drugs. Each year, The Roots Picnic delivers a day of fantastic music and a few surprises along the way.
