If you were lucky enough to cop a ticket to this weekend’s inaugural NYC edition of Roots Picnic, we salute you and look forward to your company. But, thanks to some insistent chirps from the Twittersphere, it has dawned on us that you will be entirely incapable of properly planning your voyage to the greens of Bryant Park without a complete run down of the weekend’s star-studded set lists.
Well, ask and you shall receive.
We’re happy to bring you a full itinerary for this weekend’s musical merriments, toasting to NYC’s boundless influence and cultural impact. Spread between two stages on 5th and 6th Avenue, respectively, the set time for each and every performance is listed down below. Both day are capped off with a super jam that only The Roots could concoct in their most lucid music nerd dreams; Saturday’s funk explosion with D’Angelo and John Mayer, Sunday’s litany of true school treats with David Byrne, Nile Rodgers and The Wu-Tang Clan. Now that you have all the details, it’s time to make that list. Tickets for Saturday are sold-out but you can still grab a stub for Sunday via Ticketmaster. Join us in the celebration, won’t you?
