If you’ve been ducking your friend from Philly’s requests to make the drive down I-95 for a weekend of Northern Liberties drankin’ (sorry Kevin), June 1st seems like a pretty good date to appease the dude with a visit, provided he’s down with The Roots, Grimes and Naughty by friggin’ Nature (whattttttttt) that is. Those are just three of the artists on the bill for The Roots’ 6th annual picnic, which takes place at Festival Pier at Penns Landing in Philly.
Tickets are what one may call a “steal” at just $40 (pre-Tickemaster fees, of course) for early-birds. The full lineup is on the poster above, and also below for SEO purposes.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
