Made In America, the Jay Z-founded Philadelphia music festival known as one of the best up-and-coming urban festivals in the United States, has just released its 2017 lineup.
This year, the festival’s headliners include Jay Z, J Cole, and the Chainsmokers. Taking place on labor day weekend at Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway (which recently hosted both the Pope and the NFL draft), the festival’s atmosphere is both patriotic and distinctly Philadelphian: an experience that all attendees can enjoy.
The lineup itself has been receiving a lot of attention online. While many are satisfied with the announcement, a significant amount of online users have taken to the comments sections of social media outlets to express their concerns. With an undercard dominated by hip-hop and electronic acts, a common complaint is that the lineup is not as diverse as in years past. With Jay Z’s heavy involvement in the festival, the festival’s lineup is held to the highest of standards.
With that being said, electronic music fans will not be disappointed. The Chainsmokers, Kaskade, and Marshmello take the upper card of the lineup. Also, the festival ticket will include Cash Cash, R3hab, DJ Mustard, Getter, Dirty South, and Netsky. Last but not least, the undercard of the lineup features Green Velvet, Burns, Salva, Vanic, They, Kap Slap, and Medasin.
Also worth noting is the heavy hip hop acts that will be performing at Made In America. Migos, Solange, Run The Jewels, 21 Savage, Vic Mensa, DMX, and Pusha T will be performing to name a few.
Tidal presale tickets are available here, and general admission tickets will be on sale soon.
