TV On The Radio, Public Enemy Set For 'Roots Picnic'
The Pipes featuring Zoe Kravitz and Busdriver are also set to play on the main stage, with DJs Cash Money and Jazzy Jeff spinning sets in between the bands. Writtenhouse, Back to Basics, Making Time, Busdriver, Kid Cudi and Asher Roth will all play on a second stage.
Last summer, Public Enemy did several live performances of "Nations" in London and Chicago, but the Philadelphia show will be the first time the group will reinterpret the album with a live band. Public Enemy will play live with The Roots on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" on Monday (March 16).
Last year's inaugural "Picnic" was face-melting hot, both in temperature and tunes. Diplo, Gnarls Barkley, the Cool Kids, Deerhoof, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings all performed along with The Roots.
