Okayplayer TV: 6th Annual Roots Picnic Recap Video!


The Roots hosted a sold out crowd for the 6th Annual Roots Picnic in Philadelphia on June 1st. The sun came out with the concertgoers to raise the temperature on an already sizzling lineup as people packed the Festival Pier on Penns Landing for a day of non-stop partying courtesy of The Roots and an eclectic line up of top talent. Now you can relive it all with our official recap video in association with our new friends at BitTorrent.

The main stage played host to Jennah Bell, Sonnymoon and the Robert Glasper Experiment while Trinidad James and Joey Bada$$ kept it suffocatingly crunk inside Diplo-tent. Solange murdered her set with an awesome performance while A-Trak took over the tent and proceeded to tear the canvas off. Macklemore's crowd-surfing skills gave us reason to believe he might be capable of walking on water. Meanwhile, the Okaykittens (more on them very soon) were busy stealing the show backstage as Trinidad James and his crew battled Pro Era on the basketball court. Naughty By Nature officially sent fans over the edge during a show-stopping performance with The Roots that shut the stage down. The evening came to a close as Meek Mill hit the stage for a surprise set with The Legendary Roots Crew. He put on for Philly with his rapid-fire flow to cap another epic weekend in the City of Brotherly Love.

Check the footage below to check what you missed or relive the moment once more. Come Alive! Keep an eye out for more big news from Okayplayer and BitTorrent (follow them on twitter) coming later today, as well as more original videos from the Picnic all this week.
