Made in America Music Festival Names Beyonce as Headliner
The second annual Made in America music festival will return at the end of the summer, and just named Beyonce as headliner.
Considering the festival was created by Queen B’s hubby Jay-Z, that should surprise, well, no one.
The festival will take place Labor Day Weekend, August 31 and September 1, along the Ben Franklin Parkway in the museum district of northwest Philly.
Other artists scheduled to perform include Imagine Dragons, Calvin Harris, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and one of my new favorites, Emeli Sandé.
For the rock fans, Nine Inch Nails and Queens of the Stone Age are on the bill, and there will also be some of my favorite alternative bands in attendance, like The Gaslight Anthem, Phoenix, and Empire of the Sun.
Music festivals are always a good time, and this one seems to have something for everyone.
That’s also a beautiful section of Philly, with the outdoor sculpture garden and plenty of museums — you gotta run up the Rocky Steps at one point in your life!
Tickets for the show go on sale to the public Wednesday, April 17th at 10 a.m. through LiveNation, and will go for about $100 (plus taxes, ‘convenience’ fees, etc…)
