Look, I’m not gonna go. I live in LA. Even if I wanted to go, I’m 100% over festivals.

BUT.

I love when people elevate the typical lineups. I love when they do something new. And this lineup is so amazingly dope. The jokes are for a reason but if Ms Hill shows up, and all the artists heed Quests advice on festivals? This’ll be dope. I’m envious of you who can go!

there were a lot of issues for several festivals/events throughout the year.

i went to the roots picnic and made in america in philly last year and they were both off their usual game.

i remember people complaining on twitter during several rolling loud city stops.

and the sound was fucked up for some of the performances i watched from coachella on the live stream.

it looks like it was a down year across the board.

Since the Roots Picnic has moved…it’s gotten more disorganized and it moved prior to the pandemic…

I’m leaning towards sitting this one out…

In response to Reply # 20


  

          

i went in 2019 and dont remember any widespread issues. care to elaborate?

and the next 2 years were virtual before 2022. those were scripted/recorded beforehand so no hiccups.

so it's only been 2 live events at the fairmount park location. 1 pre-pandemic.

In response to Reply # 29


  

          

The stampede was not their fault…but there were a lot of folks that walked in that venue without a ticket that year…

It was better in 2022…they just had challenges in keeping the set times on schedule…

From 2011-2016…it was better organized than it is now…that’s all…

Besides the cost of it being higher too…with Ticketmaster fees and all that…

Of all the artists Quest has access to he landed on...Diddy?


WTF?


If you're going to sell your soul at least pick a more relevant/timely artist. Or, you know, an actual artist period.



Diddy? lol

The man has a catalog.

Now - is the the most important person on MOST of those songs? Nah, not really. But whatever. He's got them. I saw the Bad Boy Reunion show years ago and he opened with Victory - a song that Biggie OBVIOUSLY wasnt there for, and Busta wasn't either. He played their verses on video screens. And that shit felt awesome.

He's not a great anything, but he puts his all into performances and that's sometimes all you need for a fun ass experience at a live show. If you don't think the Roots can put together an incredible live mixtape feel of Diddy hits, you're wrong.

i agree with the post above he'll definitely bring out some great guests. i say this as someone who doesn't like Diddy as a human being or artist.

If it wasn't for Puffy, both Big and Pac would be here imo.

Probably a few others as well.

when i clicked the link from the email i don't see an option to buy the chappelle tickets either. i know it's a separate purchase but i don't see anywhere to get them, at least from the link i got from the Roots picnic email.
