Philadelphia has been the well-known home of the Roots' annual festival Roots Picnic for the past eight years but now the festival is expanding. The festival will now be coming to New York's Bryant Park during the first weekend of October.

The Roots will headline the first day of the show, and will be accompanied by D'Angelo and John Mayer. Other artists set to perform include Kevin Gates, Jeremih, Wu-Tang Clan, David Byrne, and disco genius Nile Rodgers.
