Jay-Z’s Made In America Festival Returning for 2013
Made In America is sticking around. Last summer saw the inaugural edition of Jay-Z‘s Made In America festival take place in Philadelphia, and today (April 8) comes word the gathering will return to the City of Brotherly Love in 2013. Mark your calendar for the weekend of Aug. 31 to Sept. 1, as that’s when Made In America comes to Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The lineup will be announced soon, but in the meantime, check out a teaser for the fest above.
Last year’s fest included Skrillex, Pearl Jam, Passion Pit, Miike Snow, Odd Future, Run-D.M.C., Drake and, of course, Jigga himself, and we expect an equally eclectic bill this time around. Attendance in 2012 was lower than expected, with just under 75,000 fans turning out over the course of two days. Organizers had hoped at least 100,000 would show.
