Celebrating its twelfth-year anniversary, the Roots Picnic expands to a larger location in the coveted Fairmount Park area in Philadelphia Saturday, June 1st. Using the Mann Center as its hub, the new festival grounds will include 3 stages of music, gaming, art, and dialogue.


The Roots will headline and celebrate the 20th anniversary of their seminal album Things Fall Apart. The day includes performances from artists such as H.E.R., 21 Savage, Tank & The Bangas, Lil Baby, and many more as well as a bevy of one-of-a-kind moments exclusive to Roots Picnic, including Black Thought’s “Live Mixtape” featuring Yasiin Bey and a first of its kind Jam Session curated by Raphael Saadiq and Questlove, titled Soulquarian vs Raphael Saadiq, as well as a live podcast experience including episodes of The Joe Budden Podcast, The Read Podcast and Questlove Supreme.


The festival continues to align with music and culture and remains known for careful curation that unites music’s hottest acts, influencers, tastemakers, and thought leaders for one unforgettable day—and this year proudly continues that tradition.


Please note this event is general admission standing room. Artists subject to change.


Patrons can look forward to a diverse range of food offerings as is tradition for the Roots Picnic from Philly-favorite food trucks and other vendor offerings to specially-curated menu items from The Roots themselves. Bar locations will also be set up throughout the site.


If you plan to drive, please plan ahead with your route. All road closures can be found here.
