Beyonce Set to Headline Made in America Festival
Beyonce's reign just won't let up!
The mother and wife, in between tour dates for The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, will headline Budweiser's second annual Made in America Festival over Labor Day Weekend at Philadelphia's Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Like last year, her husband Jay-Zcurated the concert's roster. The lineup was announced via Made in America's Spotify playlist, in addition to Queen Bey, concert-goers will have the chance to see the following performers:
Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, Deadmau5, Phoenix, Calvin Harris, Empire of the Sun, Imagine Dragons, Wiz Khalifa, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Miguel, Public Enemy, Nero, 2 Chainz, Gaslight Anthem, A$AP Rocky, Walk The Moon, Solange, Feed Me, Porter Robinson, Wolfgang Gartner, Emeli Sande, Haim, Schoolboy Q, Ab Soul, GTA, Robert DeLong, Red Light, Rudimental, Aluna George, Jay Rock, Jessie Rose and TJR. You can see the full lineup here.
How's that for diverse listening? “The point of having that diversity in our music lineup [is] we're tying to expose the people to different types of music,” Paul Chibe, Budweiser's VP of marketing told Billboard. “Much like last year, where if you never saw Pearl Jam but you're a Jay-Z fan, we want fans of Beyonce or Calvin Harris or Wiz Khalifa to have the opportunity to see Nine Inch Nails or stuff they might have seen for awhile like Public Enemy. That eclectic mix creates an opportunity for us to really show the impact of music and culture.”
Last year, Made in America brought in $5 million in tickets sales, 80,000 people and inspired a documentary directed by Ron Howard, that is slated for release later this summer. Tickets are already on sale at Ticketmaster.com so snap them up soon!
