The lineup also includes Lil Uzi Vert, Dirty Projectors, 2 Chainz, Brandy, Rapsody, BadBadNotGood, Fabolous & Jadakiss, Rich the Kid & Jay Critch, Goldlink, DJ Kid Capri, Grits & Biscuits, DJ Drama presents Gangsta Grillz w/ special guests, Jojo Abot, Sun Ra Arkestra, and Bri Steves.

“It’s always a challenge every year to curate the lineup for the Picnic,” Questlove and Black Thought told Billboard. “We are especially excited this year to bring the jam session hosted by our good friend Dave Chappelle to Philly this year. We have done jam sessions with Dave many times over the past decade, most recently at Radio City Music Hall, but never in the festival environment. We love that we are able to bring this great experience to our hometown of Philly.”
