Beyonce and The Weeknd to headline Made In America Festival
The performers for the fourth installment of the Made In America festival have been announced and will likely bring another massive crowd to the City of Brotherly Love.
Music artists Beyonce and The Weeknd are headlining the two-day festival, in Philadelphia on September 5-6.
Beyonce was a headliner at the MIA Festival in 2013, while The Weeknd was featured in the most recent Roots Picnic.
The 2015 Made In America Festival lineup is: (Exact days, times and stages have yet to be announced):
Axwell & Ingrosso
Death Cab For Cutie
De La Soul
Young Rising Sons
Grits & Biscuits
Strand of Oaks
This is the first year that one of the headliners is not from the mainstream rock genre (Pearl Jam in 2012; Nine Inch Nails in 2013; Kings of Leon in 2014). This year, the festival will feature more more hip-hop and R&B artists than from other genres.
Last year, the Made In America festival simultaneously took place in Los Angeles along with Philadelphia. This year, the festival will only take place in Philly. According to the LA Times,
poor attendance, and problems with noise and crowd control are the reasons why the festival will not return to Los Angeles.
A ticket pre-sale for American Express card holders opens June 25 at 10 a.m. Tickets go on sale to the general public at noon on June 29.
