Take note, music fans.
The Roots Picnic, the annual music extravaganza from our hometown hip-hop heroes, returns for its sixth year on June 1.
With a reputation as the hardest working band in music, The Roots deliver a blockbuster day of concerts every year. This year’s show is set to hit Festival Pier at Penn’s Landing on Saturday, June 1 and, as always, the lineup includes talent from a wide range of genres.
For the group’s 2013 festival, headliners span from up-and-coming guitar star Gary Clark Jr., who has performed at festivals like Coachella and Bonnaroo, to hip-hop legend Naughty By Nature.
Also look out for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, who is expected to give one of the duo’s signature high-energy shows, and DJ Premier, who will spin on the turntables. Solange, Robert Glasper, How To Dress Well and many, many more rockers round out the lineup, including — of course — a performance from The Roots.
But starting today, fans can enter to win a pair of tickets to The Roots Picnic via a Philly 360° contest!
