Roots Picnic 2017.

When the Roots Picnic returns to Philadelphia in June, it will mark a decade straight of the Philly hip-hop legends bringing the best of hip-hop to Festival Pier.

As any momentous occasion would warrant, The Roots have assembled arguably their best lineup to date. On Monday, the house band for "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" revealed that Pharrell Williams and Lil Wayne will help them headline the event on June 3.

Tickets are officially on sale now through Ticketmaster at the event's website. General Admission tickets are priced at $75. VIP tickets with patio access, snacks and priority cash bar service go for $225 apiece.

The band's second show in New York City in October, featuring D'Angelo and John Mayor, is already sold out. 

Last year's Roots Picnic featured a surprise performance of "Summertime" when Will Smith teamed up with his daughter Willow. Headliner Usher also broke out all of his sing-along classics.

It's safe to say Lil Wayne and Pharrell Williams will both make the 2017 edition another memorable experience.
