"Ten years ago this started as a concept, an idea, a conversation between me, Tarik (Black Thought), Ahmir (Questlove) and Rich (Nichols)," says Shawn Gee, Roots longtime manager and partner in Maverick Management. "It's amazing that it has grown into such a valued piece of the cultural landscape of our hometown of Philadelphia.  We were blessed to expand the Picnic to NYC last year, and the brand will continue to grow and evolve, but Philly will ALWAYS be the home, the birthplace of the Roots Picnic.  We are super excited to bring a packed lineup to celebrate our 10th anniversary, and as always there will be plenty of surprises and special guests."
 
The Roots Picnic annually includes some of music's biggest and hottest names that kicks off the summer festival season. Last year's bill featured the likes of Usher, Future and Leon Bridges with a surprise performance by hometown hero Will Smith (with his daughter Willow).  Over the last decade, the celebrated festival institution has featured artists such as The Weeknd, A$AP Rocky, Migos, The Black Keys, John Legend, Janelle Monae, TV on the Radio, Nas, Vampire Weekend, Kid Cudi, Public Enemy, Gnarls Barkley, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Gary Clark Jr., Rakimand many more.
