As we predicted, R&B superstar Beyonce will headline Jay-Z‘s 2013 Made in America Festival in Philadelphia this summer.

The Budweiser-sponsored event will take place at the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Fairmount Park on Aug. 31 and Sept. 1. Tickets went on sale today (April 10) exclusively for American Express card members and fans of the Budweiser Made In America Facebook page. Tickets for the general public will go on sale April 17.

Other acts on the star-studded bill include Beyonce’s sister, Solange, Nine Inch Nails, Phoenix, Calvin Harris, the Gaslight anthem, Wiz Khalifa, Nero, Deadmau5, Walk the Moon, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, 2 Chainz, Aluna George, Miguel, Public Enemy, Emeli Sande, A$AP Rocky, Schoolboy Q, Ab Soul, Jay Rock and many others.

Sadly, Jay-Z will only curate the event so he will not perform like he did at last year’s festival.

At a press conference, Paul Chibe, vice president of U.S. marketing for Anheuser-Busch (Budweiser), would not confirm nor deny Hov’s presence at the festival.

“My expectation is he’ll probably be there. Can I say he’ll be there 1,000 percent? No,” he said (via “But his wife is performing, and he is the guy who put all the acts together, so I suspect he’ll be there.”

The 2012 Made in America festival attracted over 80,000 people during its two-day run in Philly.

“Philadelphia has that great symbolic connection to Made in America. America was born in Philly,” said Chibe.
