The line-up for the 2023 Roots Picnic has been announced and Diddy with The Roots and Lauryn Hill are slated to headline.

Diddy, who announced plans to release an album sometime this year, expressed excitement about making his first appearance at the popular festival. "I've ripped down stages all around the world and now I'm doing my first Roots Picnic!!" he wrote on Instagram. He also said that he's putting together a "very special show" to mark the occasion, adding that it won't be "that regular regular."

"I don't have time to play! We're going to fuck that stage up!" he wrote.

Little Brother, DJ Drama, Busta Rhymes, Lil Uzi Vert, Eve, Kindred & The Family Soul, The Isley Brothers, Ari Lennox, Adam Blackstone and more are also slated to appear at the popular annual festival. Additionally, this year's Picnic will feature a State Property Reunion featuring Beanie Sigel, Freeway, Young Gunz, Peedi Crack, and Oschino and Sparks. Dave Chapelle will also host Friday Night Comedy at Wells Fargo.

The festival is described as "three days of black culture, music, comedy, and podcasts in one of the most beautiful cities in the world," and will also feature a podcast stage with Charlamagne Tha God, Angela Yee, and Questlove Supreme.

The Roots Picnic takes place June 2-4 in Philadelphia. Pre-sale tickets will be available starting tomorrow.
