Beloved fusion group The Roots just wrapped up their ninth annual Roots Picnic in Philadelphia, PA last weekend, but New York City has always been a home away from home for the band. With that in mind, it’s no surprise that the group has announced the first-ever edition of Roots Picnic in NYC, slated for October 1-2 in Bryant Park.The festival will bring an enormous amount of star power, including The Roots, D’Angelo and John Mayer together (as a jam!) for night one, and David Byrne, Wu-Tang Clan and Nile Rodgers on night two, all backed by The Roots! The full lineup features X Ambassadors, Trombone Shorty, Kevin Gates, Swizz Beats and so many more.The show will also be the first ticketed event at Bryant Park, opening the door for many more outdoor concerts at the beloved NYC landmark. This festival keeps things in the family, as almost all of the performers have direct ties to the Roots from years in the business.You can check out the full lineup for the Roots Picnic NYC below, and head to Ticketmaster on June 10th at 10 AM Eastern for tickets.
