Jay-Z’s inaugural Made In America festival was held last fall in Philadelphia, and featured appearances from both Pearl Jam and President Obama (though, sadly, not together). The event was such a success that another edition is being planned this year, and Hova has put in a call to a familiar face to headline the event: Beyoncé!
This year’s two-day fest is scheduled to once again go down in Philly on Labor Day weekendSaturday, August 30 and Sunday, September 1 to be exact and will feature a headlining performance from Mrs. Carter herself, Beyonce. Her “The Mrs. Carter World Tour” kicks off in Belgrade next week, and runs through August. King B will take a couple of weeks of R&R before her Made In America performance, which will hopefully feature Jay and Bey duetting on a few songs! Sis Solange will also be performing, so the weekend promises to be a true family affair.
If that news isn’t enough to convince you to buy a ticket, maybe the rest of the lineup will (via SPIN): Phoenix, Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, the Gaslight Anthem, Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, Jay Rock, Deadmau5, Miguel, A$AP Rocky, Public Enemy, 2 Chainz, Emeli Sandé, Walk the Moon, Jesse Rose, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Fitz and the Tantrums, Wolfgang Gartner, AlunaGeorge, Haim, Wiz Khalifa, Nero, GTA, 3LAU, Imagine Dragons, Redlight, Rudimental, TJR, Robert DeLong, Porter Robinson, and more.
