The Roots announce eighth annual Roots Picnic, unveil lineup of just potato salad

On May 30, The Roots will bring their Annual Roots Picnic to Philadelphia’s Festival Pier for the event’s eighth iteration. The announced lineup for the Picnic is as follows:

Potato salad.

Just lots and lots of potato salad.

Mounds upon mounds of store-bought, Food Lion-brand potato salad.

An amount of potato salad that’s been described as “too much potato salad” and “why?”

Hey, just kidding, dear reader! Instead of a literal ton of the worst salad (fight me on this), The Roots have actually booked a number of acclaimed musical acts. Maybe you’ll be able to buy potato salad at the festival, but the actual booked attractions include Erykah Badu (backed by The Roots), The Weeknd, Afrika Bambaata, Hudson Mohawke, A$AP Rocky, Rae Sremmurd, DJ Mustard, Phantogram, and more. Also, in a major get, The Roots have booked a performance from The Roots.
