Jay-Z Announces Made in America Festival Will Return to Philadelphia
Jay-Z‘s Made in America Festival is returning to Philadelphia for the second time this Labor Day weekend. The rap mogul posted a teaser video Monday (April 8) that showed footage from last year’s two-day event.
The Budweiser-sponsored music fest will take place at Philly’s Ben Franklin Parkway in Fairmount Park on Aug. 31 and Sept. 1. The concert lineup will be revealed through Spotify on Wednesday (April 10).
Last year’s festival boasted over 30 artists from the R&B, hip-hop, EDM and pop worlds. Among the acts who performed included Jay-Z himself, Kanye West and G.O.O.D. Music, Skrillex, Odd Future, Jill Scott, Pearl Jam, Drake, D’Angelo, Rick Ross and a reunited Run-DMC, among many others.
Hov’s better half, Beyonce, didn’t perform at last year’s event — though she was photographed taking in the sights and sounds — so here’s hoping that Queen Bey makes a grand appearance in the City of Brotherly (and Sisterly) Love this time around.
Enough with the speculations. We will all find out on Wednesday. We can hardly wait.
