    Philly is the place to be this September!

    Jay-Z, Budweiser and United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey today announced the first line-up of award-winning artists who will perform at "Budweiser Made in America," the two-day music festival in Philadelphia this Labor Day produced by Live Nation.

    The Hova is curating and headlining the exciting roster of talent, which will include Pearl Jam, Skrillex, Miike Snow and Afrojack among the 28 artists embodying the American spirit who will perform across three stages on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park on Saturday, Sept. 1, and Sunday, Sept. 2.

    We love that they chose Philly as the locale for this event.

    The exciting slate of talent cultivated by Jay-Z will include an eclectic mix of acts ranging from rock, hip-hop, R&B, Latin and dance. Musical acts confirmed to perform in addition to Jay-Z are as follows:

    Pearl Jam
    Skrillex
    Miike Snow
    Afrojack
    Maybach Music (Rick Ross, Wale, Meek Mill)
    Odd Future
    Calvin Harris
    D'Angelo
    Passion Pit
    Santigold
    Dirty Projectors
    X
    Janelle Monáe
    Prince Royce
    Rita Ora
    Savoy (DJ set)
    The Knocks

    Additional acts to be announced. Tickets go on sale today.

    The festival in Philadelphia will culminate a summer of music parties in cities all across America, when Budweiser will invite its Facebook fans to experience talented local bands and artists. Budweiser, brewed across America, has a decades-long history of celebrating great American music.

    This concert will benefit United Ways in Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, Lancaster County, PA. A primary goal of this music festival is to have a positive impact on the communities involved. As a result of this concert, the money invested into these communities will positively impact the education, income and health of the most vulnerable and most needy citizens in these regions.

    "Budweiser Made in America" also will be available for consumers around the country to watch via live-streaming. Details will be announced at a later date.
