Beyonce to Headline Made in America

Beyonce, the Weeknd to Headline Made in America Music Festival

Beyonce and the Weeknd will headline Jay Z and Budweiser’s Made in America music festival in Philadelphia this September, it was announced Wednesday. Whether this is a show of nepotism or just exceptional husband-wife teamwork is open to interpretation. The rest of the lineup is just as impressive. Performers will include J. Cole, Modest Mouse, Death Cab For Cutie, Big Sean, Santigold, Future, Banks, Action Bronson, Earl Sweatshirt, DJ Mustard and Nick Jonas, among many others.

The festival was founded by Jay Z in 2012, with the rapper himself headlining the inaugural festival in Philadelphia alongside Pearl Jam. Beyonce headlined the next year with Nine Inch Nails. The 2014 edition of the festival saw the experimental addition of a simultaneous festival in Los Angeles, with Kanye West headlining in both cities.
