Beyonce, the Weeknd to Headline Made in America Music Festival

Beyonce and the Weeknd will headline Jay Z and Budweiser’s Made in America music festival in Philadelphia this September, it was announced Wednesday. Whether this is a show of nepotism or just exceptional husband-wife teamwork is open to interpretation.

The rest of the lineup is just as impressive. Performers will include J. Cole, Modest Mouse, Death Cab For Cutie, Big Sean, Santigold, Future, Banks, Action Bronson, Earl Sweatshirt, DJ Mustard and Nick Jonas, among many others.

The festival was founded by Jay Z in 2012, with the rapper himself headlining the inaugural festival in Philadelphia alongside Pearl Jam. Beyonce headlined the next year with Nine Inch Nails. The 2014 edition of the festival saw the experimental addition of a simultaneous festival in Los Angeles, with Kanye West headlining in both cities.

This year’s festival will not have a satellite in Los Angeles, but there will be two ancillary concerts in different cities: Mary J. Blige will headline the New York show, and a second concert will take place in a soon-to-be-announced national park, according to Stereogum.

Tickets for the two-day festival go on sale Monday, June 29. The Made in America Festival goes down at Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia September 5 and 6.
