The Roots Picnic returned to Philadelphia yesterday for the eighth straight year, and by all accounts it was a blast.
The music festival has become so popular that a third stage was added to the setup at Festival Pier this year. In fact, the Philly-based group behind the event is even looking to expand to other cities due to the consistently high attendance.
The lineup, along with The Roots, included The Weeknd, Erykah Badu, and A$AP Rocky.
According to those on social media who attended, the concert was well worth the price of admission. Here's a look at the scenes from yesterday's day-long celebration of music:
