4th Annual Roots Picnic Announced featuring Nas, Wiz Khalifa, Esperanza Spalding

Published March 1, 2011

The Roots are picnicking again, and they've invited quite the eclectic guest list.

The fourth annual Roots Picnic was announced this morning, and hip hop's greatest band will join Nas, The Dismemberment Plan, Wiz Khalifa, Yelawolf, Ariel Pink, Best New Artist Grammy–winner Esperanza Spalding and more.

The annual mini-festival goes on for one day in June and takes place in The Roots' native Philadelphia. The Picnic usually unites alternative artists from both hip hop and indie music, and this year seems to be no different, with Shady Records' Alabama transplant Yelawolf and blog-bait psych-rockers Ariel Pink sharing space on the bill.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 4. More info at OkayPlayer.
