The Roots Picnic is almost like a pilgrimage that is stoked in legacy. Each year hundreds of Roots devotees descend on Philadelphia to hear the headlining act as well as some performers which Questlove and company has hand picked for the event.
Having an open mind for music is key, as this years lineup included everyone from Vampire Weekend and the Tune Yards to John Legend and the legendary Wu-Tang Clan.
