De La Soul, Kid Cudi and more join The Roots' Picnic
The Roots have gathered some famous friends from the world of hip hop and beyond for their fifth annual Roots Picnic this summer.
The Philly group will be joined by a diverse array of performers including upstart Kid Cudi, rap legends De La Soul, indie goddess St. Vincent and LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy offering a DJ set. Mixtape king Wale, NYC weirdos tUnE-yArDs and Chicago hip hopper Flosstradamus will also appear at the two-day fest, which will take place June 2nd and 3rd at the festival pier at Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia.
The Roots themselves will be pulling double-duty, by performing their own headlining set and backing De La Soul for their performance. Diplo will likewise be putting in for overtime at the event: He'll offer a solo set and perform as one-half of the duo Major Lazer.
