Photo: Roots Picnic 2012 Recap, Part 1!
Photos by Terrence Jennings.
Roots Picnic 2012 had it all: Ups, downs, history-making performances, sunshine, thunder, lightning, jerk chicken, soul, dancehall, trillwave and that good old rap and most of all more beautiful people than you could blow an airhorn at. Some of our favorite photographers--notably the homie Terrence Jennings--were on hand to record it all and since we have two days of musical madness to get thorugh (and each of the following flicks is worth at least 1,001 words) we better jump in. Let's go.
