Philly natives The Roots are finally bringing their picnic festival to the Big Apple! That’s right, you don’t want to miss this. On October 1 and 2, The Roots Picnic is going to be partying it up at Bryant Park in midtown Manhattan, along with delicious food vendors and unforgettable performances. Not to mention, it’s the festival’s tenth anniversary and NYC debut, so there’s plenty of fun in store for the two-day event.
Join DJ Questlove and the rest of his eccentric band members as they bring out some of the biggest names in music. On (the sold-out) day one, you can catch D’Angelo, John Mayer, X Ambassadors and more as the music marathon begins at 2 p.m. Day two is where you’ll find The Roots backing each of the three headliners, Wu-Tang Clan, Nile Rodgers, and David Byrne (!!!). Whether you want to kick back and catch the always-smooth, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, or rock out with Echosmith, the event has you covered when it comes to options.
