Roots Picnic Announces Lineup



    The Roots have announced the lineup for the fifth annual Roots Picnic festival, which will take place on June 2 and June 3 at Philadelphia's Penn's Landing.

    As always, The Roots -- always the hardest-working guys in the game even when it comes to event-planning -- have hand-picked an eclectic collection of lyrical legends, hip-hop upstarts, one-off collaborations and a little bit of indie rock thrown in.

    De La Soul backed by The Roots, Kid Cudi, St. Vincent, DJ sets from James Murphy and Diplo and a performance from that band that plays with Jimmy Fallon are just some of the bill's highlights. Check out the full lineup below, and head here to pick up tickets.
