Philadelphia hip-hop group the Roots bring their musical picnic back to the Delaware River waterfront this year, setting up multiple stages around Festival Pier.

Headliners for 2018 include the Roots, who will take part in a special jam session with festival host Dave Chappelle and TBA special guests. Other acts taking the mainstage include Lil Uzi Vert, 2 Chainz, Brandy, Rapsody and more.

Attendees can also find entertainment at the Podcast Stage, which features interviews and live show recordings from music-based podcasts such as Drink Champs, Questlove Supreme and the Realest Podcast Ever.

A third Lifestyle Stage hosts a Madden + NBA 2K tournament for video-game fans, and discussion panels on art, fashion and “hustle.” Find the full day’s lineup here.
