Electric Zoo may think it has the market cornered for Labor Day Weekend festivities, but music mogul Jay-Z has other plans in mind. Last week, the rapper/producer announced his Made in America multi-genre music festival for the same weekend, to take place on the Ben Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia. And with a lineup ranging from classic rock to electronic, what other place would be fit to host the festival besides the “City of Brotherly Love.”
The festival's first day of performers consists of Jay-Z, Skrillex, Miike Snow, Calvin Harris, Maybach Music Group (Feat. Rick Ross, Wale and Meek Mill), Passion Pit, Gary Clark Jr., D'Angelo, Dirty Projectors, Janelle Monae, Prince Royce, Michael Woods, Otto Knows and Savoy.
Day two will bring even more talent like Pearl Jam, Drake, Chris Cornell, Jill Scott, Run DMC/Return of The Legendary Kings of Rock, X, Santigold, DJ Shadow (DJ Set), Betatraxx, Rita Ora, Burns and The Knocks.
Tickets are available here.
