Pearl Jam, Santigold + Miike Snow Reportedly on Jay-Z’s Made in America Festival Lineup
A screenshot has been making the rounds that claims to show a portion of the Made in America bill, which was reportedly leaked accidentally by Ticketmaster. Pearl Jam and Jay-Z head the lineup, while Skrillex, Afrojack, Drake and Odd Future are among the other big names listed. The inclusion of Sweden’s Miike Snow and Dutch DJ Afrojack would be ironic, given the event’s title.
The confirmed Made in America lineup is expected to be revealed today. Tickets go on sale for the Budweiser-sponsored event this Wednesday, May 23. The festival website promises 28 performances on three stages on Sept. 1-2 at Fairmount Park. Two-day passes start at $99, plus service charges.
Jay-Z told CNN about his decision to hold the event in Philadelphia: “Everyone knows I have long affair with Philly. Early in my career, this was one of the first towns that embraced me and supported me … I have all these deep connections here. And above and beyond that, it’s called ‘Made in America.’ It’s such an iconic city.”
