Jay-Z is showing off his eclectic tastes with the first group of acts announced for his upcoming Budweiser Made in America Festival in Philadelphia's Benjamin Franklin Parkway on September 1 and 2. Among the 28 acts that will hit three stages for the show are first night headliners Pearl Jam, as well as Jay himself, Grammy-winning EDM star Skrillex, Odd Future and the Maybach Music Group featuring Rick Ross, Wale and Meek Mill. Other performers include Afrojack, Calvin Harris, Passion Pit, Santigold, D'Angelo, Miike Snow, Dirty Projectors, X, Janelle Monae, Prince Royce, Rita Ora, the Knocks and a DJ set by Savoy.
Jigga is curating the festival, which will feature the long-awaited live return of R&B singer D'Angelo and one of Pearl Jam's only U.S. dates this year. Tickets for the show go on sale on Wednesday and more acts will be announced soon.
Prince Royce paid tribute to Jay for including him on the bill, tweeting, "Proud to announce that I'll be performing at #MADEINAMERICA Fest Sept 1-2 Thanks to Jay-Z for having me & for curating this great festival!" Before unveiling the line-up for the fest, Jay said he was hoping to break down some barriers with the Labor Day gathering.
"Whenever I enter into a project, I try to hit on some touch points. The first thing is: Is it great?" Jay asked rhetorically at a May 14 press conference on the stairs of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. "The second one is: Is it gonna push the culture forward?"
