Roots Picnic Lineup Announced!

The Roots, Wiz Khalifa, Nas (backed by The Roots), Esperanza Spalding (backed by The Roots), Ariel Pink, Man Man, The Dismemberment Plan, Mac Miller, Yelawolf, Little Dragon, J. Period, Nicos Gun & Donn T.

Can’t say this lineup isn’t looking sick (and I’m sure it’ll shape up even better) but….that’s the same weekend as Starscape (which also has a crazy ballin lineup – fucking Flux Pavilion, for one thing) so I guess I’ll have to miss the Roots Picnic. Again.

Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am. Hit up LiveNation if you’re tryna do it up.
