There’s Coachella. There’s Lollapalooza. There’s a million other music festivals that are not coming to mind immediately. However, the one festival that I’m pretty sure I’ll be attending is the Jay-Z curated Made in America festival.
Last year’s festival delivered a winningly eclectic lineup, with the headliners being Pearl Jam and, natch, Jigga himself. Mr. Carter will not be performing at this year’s festival, but he’s been gracious enough to send his wife to headline in his place. Yep, Beyonce will be the main attraction at this year’s festival, and she will be joined on the roster by an array of legends as well as a fair amount of up and comers. This list includes the reconstituted Nine Inch Nails, Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Public Enemy, Queens of the Stone Age, French dance-rockers Phoenix, soul brother Miguel, it-rapper Kendrick Lamar, and more…
The festival will take place in Philadelphia on Labor Day weekend, August 31st and September 1st. Tickets went on sale Wednesday to American Express cardmembers and fans of the Budweiser Made In America Facebook page exclusively through Tuesday April 16 at 10 p.m. ET. Public on sale begins Wednesday April 17.
