Jay-Z Sets September Dates for Returning ‘Made in America’ Festival

‘We look forward to sharing incredible memories with our festival attendees and the city of Philadelphia,’ declares the husband of Beyonce in a statement about the festival’s return.

AceShowbizJay-Z is bringing his “Made in America” festival back to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for its 10th anniversary.

The rap mogul canceled last year’s (2020) event due to the COVID pandemic, but the festival will be back for America’s Labor Day weekend at the beginning of September.

“We are thrilled to announce ‘Made in America 2021’ on the legendary Benjamin Franklin Parkway,” Jay-Z says in a statement. “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,” the husband of Beyonce Knowles continued. “We look forward to sharing incredible memories with our festival attendees and the city of Philadelphia.”

About the return of the festival, Mayor Jim Kenney said in a statement, “The City of Philadelphia is very excited for the return of ‘Made in America’ festival, and today’s announcement shows that after more than 15 months of responding to the pandemic, our city is on a path towards recovery and a return to the things we’ve missed – like live shows!”

Kenney added, “Over the last ten years, Made in America has become one of Philadelphia’s iconic events and we look forward to working with Roc Nation, Live Nation, and other partners to plan and execute a safe, successful festival weekend.”

Produced by Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, the event launched in 2012, and past headliners have included Jay-Z, Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey, Drake and Pearl Jam. This year’s line-up will be announced shortly.

A portion of its net proceeds will benefit the Arkansas-based criminal and prison justice reform organization, REFORM Alliance.
