Roots Picnic 2016 Lineup Announced; Future, Usher, Leon Bridges Among Headliners
The Roots are delivering a helluva lineup for their 9th annual Roots Picnic in Philadelphia. Chart-topping artists Usher (backed by the Illadelph band), Future, Kehlani and more are among the headliners for the pre-summer event.
The Roots Picnic will take place on June 4 at Philadelphia’s Festival Pier. The festival’s eclectic lineup includes Leon Bridges, Swizz Beatz, Jidenna, DMX, Anderson .Paak, Metro Boomin, Lil Dicky, Willow Smith and more.
Tickets will be available on Friday (Feb. 5) at Rootspicnic.com. Don’t sleep on this because tickets will definitely sell out quick.
Questlove is equally thrilled by the positive response over the lineup from his fans. The Roots' drummer thanked his followers for making the Roots Picnic a trending topic on Twitter for the first time ever.
"Very Happy About This. Took 9 Years. But For The First Time the Roots Picnic is trending thank you all for the support. We just wanna make #Philly proud. #RootsPicnic," he wrote.
Last year, Erykah Badu headlined the Roots Picnic and brought out the LOX and YG during her set. Grammy-nominated crooner the Weeknd also performed.
