Watch some highlights from yesterday's Roots Picnic in Philly.
Today, we've seen two festivals interrupted by weather issues, so by comparison, The Roots Picnic in Philly which took place on Saturday was a great success, even though Future's set ended up being a bit rough. According to fans at the show, Future Hendrix only performed for about 20 minutes, exiting after he had serious issues with his microphone. Though the crowd was hoping for the Atlanta rapper to come back for more material, he did not reappear, causing fans ti throw bottles and other objects at the stage.
Elsewhere, Willow Smith brought out her father Will, and his early collaborator DJ Jazzy Jeff, who performed their classic, "Summertime" for the excited crowd, while Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj took some photo opss with Lil Uzi vert, Usher and Lil Jon reunited, and Kehlani, Anderson. Paak, and DMZ tore it down.
Check out some pictures and videos from the event below.

Future's mic stopped working & after 15 mins his DJ came back and started packing his shit up. Immediately ppl started throwing everything.— Kozza (@Kozza) June 5, 2016
Future shoulda said something. Or waved waved his hands and blew some kisses. Fuck it, sign language. Anything to apologize.— Kozza (@Kozza) June 5, 2016
Future's sound failed him 20 minutes into his #RootsPicnic set. Doesn't look like he's coming back. People throwing plastic bottles at stage— Jason Lipshutz (@jasonlipshutz) June 5, 2016
