Made in America Festival is slated to take over Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway from September 3rd-4th. This Jay-Z curated event started in 2012 and has become a staple of the city’s Labor Day Weekend celebrations.
This year’s Made in America will span two days and feature over 30 artists, 27 food vendors, and various social impact organizations to the public. Slated headliners for the event include rapper Tyler The Creator, Bad Bunny, and Lil Uzi Vert. Additionally, acts such as Toro Y Moi and Ryan Castro will also play the stages.
Food vendors will provide patrons with a range of tasty options, including everything from traditional American classics to Puerto Rican and African dishes. New to the two-day event is Made’s ‘Cause Village.’ In partnership with clothing brand SHEIN, this festival segment will focus heavily on locally and nationally social impact organizations, including Philadelphia Works, Planned Parenthood, Roc Nation School of Music, and Jay Z’s own Shawn Carter Foundation.
Two-day GA, VIP, and single-day passes for Made in America are still available on their website. Our staff at That Mag can’t wait to see you at this year’s MIA! Stay tuned for on-the-ground coverage!
