The 106.5 Beat Fest will feature a full lineup of hip-hop artists heard on 106.5 The Beat headlined by The Roots.

Formed in 1987, in Philadelphia, PA, the legendary Roots Crew consists of Black Thought (MC), Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson (drums), Kamal Gray (electronic keyboards), F. Knuckles (percussion), Captain Kirk Douglas (electronic guitar), Damon Bryson (sousaphone) and James Poyser (electronic keyboard). Having previously released twelve projects, The Roots have become one of the best known and most respected hip-hop acts in the business, winning four Grammys, including Best R&B Album for Wake Up!, Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance for “Hang in There” (with John Legend) and Best Group or Duo R&B Vocal Performance for “Shine.” Additionally, The Roots have also become the faces of Philly’s “Fourth of July Jam,” an annual concert held during the Fourth of July with the biggest names in music, and “The Roots Picnic,” a yearly star-studded mix of musicians that has become a celebrated institution during awards season. The Roots were named one of the greatest live bands around by Rolling Stone and are the official house band on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where they currently perform every Monday-Friday. The Roots celebrated the release of their 14th studio album ...and then you shoot your cousin in May 2014.
