Jay-Z Announces Made in America Festival in Philadelphia
Standing on the steps of Philadelphia’s Art Museum with Mayor Michael Nutter earlier this morning, hip-hop superstar Jay-Z confirmed that he will curate and headline the first annual Budweiser Made In America music festival. Set to take place across three stages on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park on Sept. 1- 2, the Live Nation-produced event is expected to include nearly 30 artists whose genres include rock, hip-hop, R&B, Latin and dance.
Although the full lineup has not yet been confirmed, ticketing information for the Labor Day weekend event has been revealed. A limited number of two-day passes will be available May 22 for $99 (plus service fees) on the Budweiser Facebook page. Regular tickets will go on sale the next day through Ticketmaster and Live Nation. Additionally, an undisclosed portion of ticket proceeds will be donated to local non-profit organizations through the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey
