Roots Picnic 2014 is almost here! We’re amped to announce that the 7th Annual installment of the Philly institution will officially be going down Saturday May 31st at Festival Pier in the City of Brotherly Love. Questlove reveals the full line-up today via Okayplayer TV and it’s the kind of news that makes you want to say: Pssssst!  Maybe you thought you were already burned out on all the line-up announcements of the summer music festival season. But maybe you were mistaken. Because only one music festival has Snoop Dogg backed by The Roots! Yup. Let me spell that out for you again: The Big Snoop D-O-double-Gizzle backed by the Legendizzle Rizzle. At the 7th Annual Roots Pizzle in Illadizzl. In standard english that’s the Festival Pier on Penn’s Landing, Philadelphia, PA. As ever Roots Picnic goes down on the offical-unofficial first day of summer which this year means Saturday, May 31st.

The rest of the line-up reads like an equally epic roll-call that includes Janelle Monaé, Action Bronson, War On Drugs, A$AP Ferg, araabMUZIK, Jhené Aiko, Rudimental, Just Blaze, Bad Rabbits, Biz Markie (on the 1s and 2s), Roman Gianarthur, Chill Moody, Emily Wells, Electric Wire Hustle and of course The Roots (again) this time backing “The Roots.” Do not, however, take our words for it, scroll down to get the all bold face names written in black and white (actually blue and green and pink and orange) via the beautiful 7th Annual Roots Picnic poster art, rendered brilliantly by the homie Johnsville as is now Roots Picnic tradition. Or receive the full line-up information above in a more stripped down form as Questo announces the brain (and schedule) re-arranger that is Snoop x The Roots, without even taking a break from his famously packed schedule in our official Okayplayer TV reveal (amazing what that man can accomplish while he’s getting his hair braided). Watch our OKP TV recaps of the madness that went down at the 5th annual and 6th annual Roots Picnic(s) respectively to get psyched and we’ll see you on Penn’s Landing May 31st (stay tuned for pre-sale information).

Stay tuned to Okayplayer.com for the early bird pre-sale going live this Thursday from Noon to midnight ET.  Tickets on sale this Friday at RootsPicnic.com.

    Damn… That’s a dope lineup. I just wish I would be there. I live in Phoenix, so I can’t go. I would love for this concert to be here. That would be hella dope for us rap fans.

    Code doesn’t seem to discount to 40.00. It is still saying 53.00

    • It is $40 plus the usual fees so it comes out to $53.50

  • Pia

    The 40 dollar price is not coming up when you put the code in. It is still 53.00
