Iconic hip-hop band and Philly's own The Roots are keeping busy performing daily as the house band for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon —  but they always make sure to kick off the summer in their hometown.

The Legendary Roots Crew will be taking over Festival Pier in Philly once again with their signature music festival — the Roots Picnic aka one of the dopest shows you'll catch all year.
