The poster features a Native American theme, with a totem pole featuring each of The Roots members etched in the totem. Black Thought and ?uestlove grace the top of the totem, holding a microphone and drumsticks respectively, while the totem is also adorned with Philadelphia’s historic Liberty Bell, as well as musical notes and speakers.

The Roots will back both De La Soul and Rakim’s newly announced sets for the show. During Rakim’s set he will perform “Paid in Full,” among other legendary songs from his catalogue.

This year’s Roots Picnic takes place the weekend of June 2-3 at the Festival Pier at Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia, PA.
