The poster above pretty much says it all. The 5th Annual Roots Picnic will take place at Festival Pier on Saturday, June 2nd and Sunday, June 3rd. As usual, The Roots themselves will be headlining in addition to backing up other artists (this year they’ll play with De La Soul). Other performers include Kid Cudi, Wale, Major Lazer, Diplo, St. Vincent, and Tune-Yards.
Tickets will go on sale to the general public this Friday at 10 A.M. There will be a pre-sale beginning today at 10 A.M. and ending twelve hours later. During the pre-sale, you can buy a 2-day pass for just $80. Single-day tickets are $50. The pre-sale password is “picnic,” get your tickets here.
