The Legendary Roots Crew may be everywhere these days, including playing as the house band for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, but the iconic hip-hop band always brings it back to their hometown of Philadelphia.

The Roots are once again taking over Festival Pier in Philly this summer with their signature music festival — the Roots Picnic. That's right. The 7th Annual Roots Picnic was just announced, and we have all of the details for you to start making some plans. 

The Roots handpick the entire lineup, and it's always packed with some of the hottest names in music — from hip-hop to indie to R&B and more. The Roots always deliver year after year. You never know what's about to go down at the Picnic. Last year, we got to see history made when legendary hip-hop group Naughty By Nature reunited. And, then there was the random water gun fight with Solange. Or, that time when there was an impromptu dance party with Diplo in the second stage tent when rain tried to stop the Picnic. And, not to mention surprise guests hitting the stage every year. They always have them, and it's always epic.

Want to be there? We've got you. Be on the look out for some ticket giveaways from us on philly360.com. And, if you're headed to Austin for SXSW, we're giving away a pair of tickets and a weekend in Philly for the Roots Picnic. You can find us at Death and Taxes and Visitphilly.com Present East End on Thursday, March 13, at Cheer Up Charlie's. Chill Moody and some other Philly acts will be hitting our stage. 

So, who made the cut this year for the lineup? 

The Lineup

The Roots
Snoop Dogg (backed by The Roots)
Janelle Monae
A$AP Ferg
Action Bronson
araabMUZIK
The War On Drugs
Rudimental

I think everyone that attended The Roots Picnic last year remembers the epic thunder storm that rolled over Festival Pier during the second day of the Festival. However, an amazing experience came from it as everyone packed into the inside tent to check out Diplo! An all-out rave ensued.

One thing that music festivals most certainly bring you is an experience. Huddled next to tons of folks you don’t know, escaping the elements, while watching Diplo murder the turntables is something that could only happen at a festival. The Roots Picnic is definitely the kick-off to the summer festival series in Philly.

This year, we know that DJ Premier will be in the line-up and though drastically different from Diplo, I’m looking forward to it. And may we even see a DJ set from Ms. Solange? I’m just speculating here, I would love to see it, but I know she is also supporting a project.

Bottom line is, The Roots Picnic is never short of great DJs, great acts, and great experiences. Hopefully you will be on the water with us checking out Gary Clark, Jr., Naughty by Nature, Robert Glasper and many more!

Last year, Philly 360° had the opportunity to catch up with Diplo about his show stopping set. Check out what he had to say below.

If you were one of the the thousands of people who ran into the tent at the Roots Picnic this year during the rain, then you probably had the same experience we did - DIPLO. Not only did he kill it on the main stage, but he took over the tent when the rain started to come down with an impromptu DJ set. The energy was crazy, and it might be one of our favorite Roots Picnic moments ever.

If you weren't there, or if you just want to be a part of it again, see what all the hype was about here with our exclusive video featuring Diplo. Here's Episode 4 of our Roots Picnic coverage below.
