It's a music fan's dream, dozens of musicians playing on more than one stage over two days. This year's "Budweiser Made in America Festival" festival lineup was announced for Philadelphia. Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, Kings of Leon, Tiesto, The National, Steve Aoki, J. Cole, Girl Talk, De La Soul and Chromeo are among the performers.
The festival takes place on Labor Day Weekend on the Ben Frankin Parkway.
New this year, the Made In America Festival will be the first American festival to run simultaneously on both coasts. Live Nation, Shawn "Jay Z" Carter and Budweiser announced that the concerts will take place in Philadelphia and Los Angeles.
The Los Angeles fest will take place on Grand Park in downtown Los Angeles. The artists performing on the west coast will be announced at a later date and live-streaming will be available for both concerts.
“There is something for everyone. Festival ticket-holders, cultural institution visitors and those with business on the Parkway are all welcome to take part in a relaxing weekend of holiday fun," said Mayor Michael Nutter. "With the success of the last two years in Philadelphia, the Budweiser Made in America Festival is expanding into a bi-coastal event which will bring the spirit of ‘Made in America’ to even more music fans across the country.”
Bleachers, Cut Snake, Gareth Grimes, Baauer, Tommy Trash, The Neighbourhood, Danny Brown and Will Sparks are also hitting the stage in Philadelphia.
