The Next Movement: The Roots Picnic Returns to The Mann Center This Weekend

At The Roots Picnic, hip-hop and R&B stars take center stage — alongside live podcast recordings and much more — at the Mann Center in Philadelphia’s West Fairmount Park.

The major music event has become a Philly summer tradition — something of an annual reunion, really — and features performances from some of the biggest names in music.

Curated by and named after Philadelphia’s own critically acclaimed band The Roots, this is one music fest not to be missed.

For the 2022 fest — set to take place from June 4 to 5, 2022 — attendees can look forward to performances from Mary J. Blige (with The Roots!), Summer Walker, Wizkid, Jazmine Sullivan, Kamasi Washington, Kirk Franklin, Tierra Whack and more.

And on the live podcast stage? Questlove Supreme, Million Dollaz Worth of Game, Rory & Mal, Earn Your Leisure and, of course, our very own Love + Grit.

The Experience

Each year, The Roots are joined by an incredible selection of artists, which in the past have included Pharrell, Lil Wayne, Solang, Meek Mill and many more.

In addition to its famous headliners, The Roots Picnic frequently features talented up-and-comers and hometown acts representing Philly onstage.

Look for music all day on multiple stages, as well as a podcast stage featuring, naturally, Questlove Supreme and a number of other shows.

The festival also features a wide variety of on-site local food and merchandise vendors for eating, drinking, shopping and more.
