Billed as the “biggest Roots Picnic yet,” the 23 performances will take place across three stages.

“We are excited that the Picnic is growing each year,” said Roots Picnic co-founder Shawn Gee. “We are laser focused on building an amazing fan experience and continuing to build a diverse lineup that matches the collective tastes and interests of the curators, Questlove and Black Thought of the Legendary Roots Crew. This year is going to be a lot of fun!”

Last year’s lineup included The Weeknd, Erykah Badu, A$AP Rocky, Rae Sremmurd, and DJ Mustard, while John Legend, Janelle Monáe, Nas, Kid Cudi, and Public Enemy have performed in previous years.
