Jay Z will host his “Made in America” festival again this year, and this time, it will take place on both coasts. According to Rolling Stone, Jay Z, alongside Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti at a press conference today confirmed that this year’s event will take place in Los Angeles as well as its traditional location in Philadelphia.
According to a press release, it will be the first American festival to run simultaneously on both coasts. The Los Angeles Made in America will be held at downtown’s Grand Park and surrounding areas and the Philadelphia event will take place at the city’s Ben Franklin Parkway on August 30th and 31st.
This will be the third year for Made in America, which was founded by Jay Z in 2012. Past performers include Beyonce, Deadmau5, Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, Kendrick Lamar and many others. No announcements have been made yet about this year’s lineup, but Jay Z typically curates a wide variety of performers—everything from soul to electronic.
Early-bird tickets for Made in America are available here. Both festivals will benefit local United Way organizations in each city’s region.
