Jay-Z’s Made In America festival is coming back to Philadelphia on September 4-5 this year!
After having been delayed for more than a year in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the iconic Made In America festival has confirmed it will be celebrating its ninth edition at Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
The announcement was made by Jay Z himself earlier this week:
“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”.
To be produced by Roc Nation alongside Live Nation, Made In America 2021 will feature the ACLU of Pennsylvania being its official charity partner. Cause Village, which has been at the festival since 2012, will also be present for 2021’s iteration.
Made in America kicked off in 2012 with performances by Drake, Skrillex, Jay, Odd Future and Mariah Carey. The last festival in 2019 was headlined by Travis Scott and Cardi B alongside Juice WRLD, Anderson. Paak, with Jorja Smith also performing.
The impact of the iconic event is undeniable: according to statistics, it generated over $135 million in economic impact for the city of Philadelphia since its launch in 2012.
