THE EARLY WORD: Phreaknick


OKAYPLAYER: Another Friday closer to the release of The RootsRising Down (April 29th) is here. Keeping with our promise to unleash something new, this week’s entry does not pertain precisely to the album but instead to the Legendary’s first annual Roots Picnic festival in Philadelphia on June 7th. The band has been talking for years of curating their own all day event featuring their friends and favorite groups from across all genres and we are pleased to officially announce the line up of The Roots, Gnarls Barkley, Sharon Jones + The Dap Kings, Deerhoof, Santogold, J*Davey, Diplo, and Esperanza with more to be announced. It all goes down at Philly’s Festival Pier at 2pm. Tickets go on sale next Friday at 10am ET. MORE
