PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- If you are planning on attending the annual Roots Picnic this year you might actually be able to have a legitimate picnic... on grass.

Questlove announced via Instagram on Monday that the venue for this year's event will be moved from Penn's Landing to the grounds of the Mann Music Center in Fairmount Park.
