For the third consecutive year Budweiser is bringing the #MadeinAmericaFest back to Philadelphia. This festival takes place on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, and it’s probably the biggest lineup in Philadelphia all year.
This year’s lineup includes Kanye West, Kings of Leon, Tiesto, The National, Steve Aoki, Pharrell Williams, J. Cole, Girl Talk, Spoon, Chromeo, City and Colour, Grimes, AWOLNATION, R3HAB, Gareth Emery, De La Soul, Baauer, Tommy Trash, Mayer Hawthorne, Kongos, 3LAU, The Neighborhood, Danny Brown, YG, Holy Ghost, Penguin Prison, Destructo, Bleachers, DJ Cassidy, Cherub, Will Sparks, Young & Sick, Vacationer, Cut Snake, and Kaneholler.
For many of the artists, this is their only Philadelphia appearance for quite some time. Spoon, for example, have new album out and this will be their only tour date in Philadelphia. They are without question my favorite band on the lineup but with this caliber of artists, there really is something for everyone.
There’s also something very unique about this year’s Budweiser #MadeinAmericaFest. This will be the first American festival to run simultaneously on both coasts! While we are enjoying that excellent lineup listed above, there is an equally impressive lineup happening in Los Angeles. In fact, it looks as though Kanye West will be making an appearance at both festivals.
The Budweiser #MadeinAmericaFest benefits the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey and United Way of Lancaster County. Cause Village Vendors also include Shawn Carter Foundation, Headcount/NAACP, Budweiser Veterans, Donda House (Kanye West’s charity), St. Jude Hospital (Kings of Leon supported charity), Partners in Health (The National), World Childhood Foundation (Tiesto), Philly Paws, Drive Change, Born this Way Foundation, Why Hunger, and Mural Arts.
Tickets for the Festival can be purchased as either a single day ticket, or a 2-day pass:
