Made in America Festival is officially back. JAY-Z has announced that the music festival is making a comeback this September in Philadelphia after calling off the event in 2020 due to COVID-19.

Hov’s highly-anticipated music festival is celebrating its ninth iteration at the famed Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The lineup has yet to be revealed but early bird tickets are already available. In a statement, JAY revealed, “We are thrilled to announce Made in America 2021 on the legendary Benjamin Franklin Parkway. This year will be like no other, as Made in America celebrates 10 years of music history-making moments. The artists’ performances will be even bigger and Cause Village will host a wider range of amazing philanthropic organizations. We look forward to sharing incredible memories with our festival attendees and the city of Philadelphia.”

The festival is set to be produced by JAY’s company, Roc Nation, alongside Live Nation. Pennsylvania’s ACLU is the official charity partner and all net proceeds are expected to go to the REFORM Alliance. Cause Village, which has been a staple at the festival since its 2012 launch, will also be present at the 2021 edition. In its debut year, Made in America featured Drake, Jay-Z, Skrillex, Odd Future and Mariah Carey. In 2019, Travis Scott, along with Cardi B, Juice WRLD, Anderson .Paak and Jorja Smith headlined the stage.

Made in America has helped the local community in many ways since its inception. Since 2012, the festival helped to generate more than $135 million USD for Philly.

Made in America 2021 is set to take place on September 4 and 5. Early bird tickets are now on sale online, going for $99.50 USD for a two-day pass.

Elsewhere in music, the Recording Academy has announced new rules for GRAMMY Awards.
