The Roots, Snoop Dogg & Janelle Monáe to Headline 7th Annual Roots Picnic
By Shannon Carlin
The Roots are bringing out all their friends for The 7th annual Roots Picnic.
Keeping people guessing over who will play the picnic has always been part of the fun for the band and the event’s producer, Shawn Gee, who is also The Roots’ long time co-manager.
“Our idea was always to present an eclectic mix of talent that reflects the diversity that exists in fans music preferences,” Gee said in a statement. “Over the past 6 years we’ve built the brand with that goal in mind and we feel we’ve accomplished that this year, its going to be a fun event.”
Tickets for the event go on sale on Friday, March 7 at 12 pm EST.
The band announced this year’s lineup with a short video where Questlove reveals the lineup while getting his hair did, but for your convenience we’ve written out this year’s lineup below.
