With tickets going on sale in less than 48 hours, the first leak of performers for the Jay-Z currated festival coming to Philadelphia were announced this morning. Made In America is taking place Labor Day weekend in Fairmount Park. The announced performers to be added to the headlining Hov are Pearl Jam, Odd Future, Skrillex, Santigold, Miike Snow, D’Angelo, and Afrojack. He’s definitely keeping it diverse, as promised. Hopefully the rest of the 28 performers are announced before tickets go on sale, but either way, this is well worth $99.
UPDATE: Additional acts for what is being called “Phase One” of the Made In America music festival came out later today. The highlight being Maybach Music Group, featuring Rick Ross, Meek Mill, and Wale. Also to perform: The Dirty Projectors, Calvin Harris, Passion Pit, Rita Ora, X, Janelle Monae, Prince Royal, The Knocks, and a DJ set from Savoy. I am expecting at least a few more big names. Kanye, Beyonce, or Coldplay wouldn’t be much of a surprise considering Jay is supposedly “hand-picking” the lineup. We’ll see. Does “Phase One” mean “Day One”? I doubt it.
