Los Angeles mayor grants approval, Made in America will arrive on the West Coast in August
Just a few weeks ago, rumors regarding a West Coast edition of Made in America floated into the music sphere. As Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti prepares for an official press conference and announcement in partnership with Jay Z on April 16th, Southern California residents can be assured that the Philadelphia-based festival will soon be touching down in the city.
The Live Nation and Jay Z event is slated to occur in Los Angeles’ Grand Park on August 30th and 31st, in congruency with the flagship Philadelphia event. LA Weekly reports that a memo about the event from LAPD notes that “an electronic dance music stage would be included and said that approving such an event would open the door to controversial raves and other ticketed events at a venue intended to be, according to its motto, ‘The Park For Everyone.'”
As gracious as the previous statement reads, Grand Park director Lucas Rivera was quick to add that the approval of the Made in America Festival will not swing open doors for other rave hopefuls, perhaps alluding to persistent interest from Insomniac and its alumni edition of EDC Los Angeles, and only accommodated Jay Z and Live Nation at the request of the mayor’s office.
Reports indicate that the line up is yet to be confirmed for Los Angeles’ edition of Made in America. Stay tuned for more details.
