The Roots Picnic To Make NYC Debut, With D’Angelo, Dungeon Family Reunion & More

blame it on Meka June 6, 2016

A few hours away from the festival madness of New York and New Jersey, The 2016 Roots Picnic held services with the likes of Usher (channeling the spirit of James Brown during his set), Future (whose set was marred by sound issues during his), and Willow Smith (who brought out DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince during hers). One of the many exhilarating events of the weekend, The Roots now plan to take their talents to the middle of the Big Apple.

On October 1st-2nd, The Roots Picnic will make its New York City debut, and they have invited several of their good friends too: D’Angelo, Kevin Gates, John Mayer, X Ambassadors, the Wu-Tang Clan, Lil Uzi Vert, Yuna, Swizz Beatz, Styles P, Royce 5’9, Freddie Gibbs, and a reunion of the Dungeon Family.


Tickets go on sale Friday, June 10th via Ticketmaster.
