If champagne isn’t your thing, have no fear.  Grab a Philly cheesesteak and head over to the Festival Pier at Penn’s Landing for the Roots Picnic. The Roots Picnic is definitely an event worth traveling for, especially when the line up includes bangers like Pharrell and the Roots, Lil Wayne, Solange, 21 Savage, Kimbra, Black Thought and Pete Rock, to name a few.

Tickets range from $75 to $259 for general admission.  That’s a small price to pay for what is sure to be the hottest concert in the city this summer.
