Nine Inch Nails, Deadmau5, Calvin Harris, Nero top lineup for Philly’s second annual Made in America Festival
Budweiser’s Made In America festival is set to return to Philadelphia for the second annual event this Labor Day weekend. Curated by Jay-Z and boasting an eclectic line-up of talents from across the musical spectrum, the charitable two-day event — this year falling on August 31 and September 1 — may be lacking a formal performance from Hov himself, but fares considerably well for the electronic dance music community.
Balancing headline action from Nine Inch Nails and Beyonce with appearances from Deadmau5, Calvin Harris, Wolfgang Gartner and Nero, the sheer balance of musical genres makes the festival’s homecoming an awe-inspiring affair. Thought to have grossed some $50m in ticket sales and summoned nearly 80,000 people towards the event last year, an official documentary will follow in the festivals footsteps to outline the true potential of big names working in unison for the greater good.
