The sixth annual concert hosted by The Roots continues to offer a diverse lineup of acts.

Solange, Grimes, and More Scheduled for Roots Picnic

The Roots know how to throw down the musical gauntlet. ?uestlove, Black Thought and the gang have been throwing their annual Roots Picnic in Philadelphia for the past five years and have been offering up an eclectic mix of performers for those in attendance. That is no different for the seventh installment that was announced just today which features the likes of Grimes, Solange, Gary Clark Jr. and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. 

Via Consequence of Sound:

The Roots’ annual Roots Picnic returns as a one-day festival on June 1st at the Festival Pier in the band’s native Philadelphia, PA. Along with the curators themselves, this year’s lineup features Grimes, a Roots-backed Naughty by Nature, Gary Clark Jr., Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, araabMUZIK, Solange, The Gaslamp Killer, How to Dress Well, Joey Bada$$, and more.

With names like that, Philly should be rocking come June. This will be a good showcase for young talent like Joe Bada$$, araabMUZIK, DJ Premiere, and Trinidad Jame$ (lotta dollar signs in there, huh?). Getting the nod from the Legendary Roots crew certainly won't hurt.
