Made in America 2013 Headliners Announced: Nine Inch Nails + Beyonce Top the Bill

Created by rapper Jay-Z and sponsored by Budweiser, the Made in America festival is set to return to Philly for its second annual run from Aug. 31-Sept. 1 at the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The 2012 inaugural edition of the fest was quite a success, drawing more than 80,000 fans from all over, and this year’s lineup – which was revealed via the festival’s Spotify playlist – is shaping up to be an exceptional one as well, featuring headliners Beyonce and the newly reunited Nine Inch Nails.

Other acts on the stacked bill include Phoenix, Calvin Harris, Deadmau5, Queens of the Stone Age, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Imagine Dragons, Public Enemy, Solange, the Gaslight Anthem, A$AP Rocky, Wiz Khalifa, Walk the Moon, Emeli Sande, Kendrick Lamar and Empire of the Sun.

“The point of having that diversity in our music lineup [is] we’re trying to expose the people to different types of music,” said Budweiser’s VP of marketing Paul Chibe in a recent statement. “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 not have seen for awhile like Public Enemy. That eclectic mix creates an opportunity for us to really show the impact of music and culture.”

If you “like” the festival’s Facebook page or are an American Express card member, you can purchase tickets now. Passes go on sale to the general public next Wednesday (April 17).
