If you want to get your hands on tickets, the alumni presale event has already started. General on-sale will start on February 23, and you can get your festival passes through Ticketmaster or StubHub. We recommend using StubHub for festival tickets, especially if you missed the presale event or tickets have already sold out.

Roots Picnic was first launched in 2008 by hip-hop outfit The Roots and their manager Shawn Gee. The festival was designed to be a celebration of Philly’s incredible music scene, and it has not failed to showcase some incredible well-known and up-and-coming artists.

Don’t wait around for what Rolling Stone has called “hip-hop’s greatest festival”! Tickets won’t last, so snatch them up quick!
