Jay-Z To Headline Budweiser Made In America Festival, Says Event Will “Make History”


The secret behind Jay-Z’s press conference in Philly this morning is finally out. Hov addressed the public Monday (May 14), in which he not only announced that he would headline the two-day event over Labor Day weekend, but proclaimed that the concert will be historic. “This Labor Day, we will not only make history but we’re benefiting a great organization,” Jay said.  “Budweiser Made in America will encompass every genre of music, creating and showcasing the only genre that matters, ‘great music.’  Budweiser and Live Nation are going to produce an amazing two days of performances, and it’s great to partner with United Way again to support all of the positive work they do in the community.”

Tickets for the Live Nation event, to be held September 1st and 2nd at the Ben Franklin Parkway in Fairmount Park,  go on sale Wednesday, May 23. Tickets retail for $99, but Budweiser fans will get first dibs at pre-sale tickets available May 22, by liking the company’s Facebook page. While there are nearly 30 slots available, Jay failed to reveal which acts would be joining him. Given the location, many speculate that the performance may mark a reconciliation with Beanie Sigel, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
