Labor Day is quickly approaching, and for many Americans that means a three-day weekend with good drinks, family and friends, and lots of music. Philadelphia is hosting Budweiser’s Made in America festival at the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The hype is huge, considering Made in America has officially sold out already.
On September 5-6, Beyonce, Nick Jonas, The Weeknd, Earl Sweatshirt, Future, Action Bronson, J Cole, G-Eazy, Death Cab for Cutie, Modest Mouse, Axwell / Ingrosso, Bassnectar, A-Trak, Banks, and hometown favorite Meek Mill are just some of the amazing performers set to take the stage at Made in America.
The days and set times for each artist has yet to be released, creating even more buzz for the festival’s fans. This year is the first time Made in America doesn’t have a mainstream rock headliner.
Made in America debuted in 2012, and is thrown by the king of hip-hop himself, Jay Z. Made in America puts an average of $10 million into Philadelphia’s economy as estimated by the city and the mayor.
“We’ve always talked to Jay about a long term partnership and relationship, and it’s been successful for both the city and the Jay Z-MIA team,” Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter said.
Contractually, he says, Made in America is under contract with the city to put on the festival though 2017. “So they’re here for at least a couple of years. We’re anticipating that it’ll be here for a number of years in the future.”
