The tenth iteration of JAY-Z’s Made in America music festival is set to be headlined by Justin Bieber and Lil Baby when it returns to live format on September 4th and 5th in Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
Personally curated by JAY-Z himself, the lineup additionally features Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat, A$AP Ferg, Roddy Ricch, Lil Durk, Bobby Shmurda, Tinashe, Moneybagg Yo, Morray, 42 Dugg, Freddie Gibbs and Est Gee, among other performers. The all-ages outdoor event typically comprises three stages of live music: Rocky Stage, Liberty Stage, and the electronic music Freedom Tent. Additional acts are set to be announced in the upcoming weeks.
The Roc Nation production was canceled last year due to the pandemic, and this year’s attendees will be required to wear face masks. Festival organizers say they will work with the City of Philadelphia on a public health and safety plan and crowd size will be reduced.
“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,” JAY-Z said in a statement. “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.”
Two-day general admission passes to Made in America are on sale now, with a portion of the net proceeds being donated to the ACLU of Pennsylvania and the REFORM Alliance.
