Kendrick Lamar is joining this year’s 2018 Made In America lineup. Billed as a “very special set by Kendrick Lamar,” the Compton emcee joins the likes of Nicki Minaj, Post Malone, Meek Mill, Diplo, Zedd, Miguel, Janelle Monáe, Cashmere Cat, Ty Dolla $ign, Alessia Cara, 6LACK, Pusha T, Daniel Caesar, Lil Skies and more at the Philadelphia festival. Made In America will take place September 1 and 2 at Philly’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

Last month, JAY-Z penned an op-ed directed at the mayor of Philadelphia for allegedly banning Made in America from using the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, a location the festival has been using since 2012. “We are disappointed that the mayor of the city of Philadelphia would evict us from the heart of the city, through a media outlet, without a sit-down meeting, notice, dialogue, or proper communication,” JAY originally wrote. Following this, the mayor and Roc Nation released a joint statement after holding a meeting together, revealing that the festival will remain in Benjamin Franklin Parkway for “years to come.”

The 2018 Made In America Festival takes place on Sept. 1 & 2 at Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Tickets can be purchased here.
