The Roots are once again ready to take over their hometown of Philadelphia during the first week of June. On Tuesday (Feb. 2), the Tonight Show band announced its ninth annual Roots Picnic date as well as the stacked lineup, featuring Future, Usher, Leon Bridges and, of course, The Roots.
The full lineup was announced by queens Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer of Broad City. As the two girls plan their day, which includes some hookups, hanging out with Abbi's friend Jean and plenty of hydrating, they also rolled out the lineup - and it's just as filled with glorious R&B and soul goodness as fans of this annual event have come to expect.
In addition to headliners Future, Bridges and Usher (who will be backed by The Roots), other acts on the bill include Blood Orange, Kehlani, Jidenna, Anderson .Paak, Willow Smith, Swizz Beatz and more.
The Roots Picnic will take place on Saturday, June 4, at the Festival Pier in Philadelphia. The general public on-sale for tickets will begin on Friday, Feb. 5, at noon EST.
