The giant music festival curated by Jay-Z returns to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Center City this Labor Day weekend. This year marks ten years since Made in America‘s inception.
Puerto Rican superstar Bad Bunny will headline the festival this year alongside Tyler, The Creator. Bad Bunny‘s first show in Philly was this March at Wells Fargo Center, which quickly sold out. Tyler, The Creator also performed to a packed house at Wells Fargo the same month. We know Philly will be excited to welcome these artists back again!
Joining these headliners are Philly’s own Lil Uzi Vert and Jazmine Sullivan. Sullivan recently performed at the Roots Picnic, another favorite Philly festival held at the Mann Center in Fairmount Park. We’re also super excited to see artists like Burna Boy, Snoh Aalegra, and Toro y Moi on the bill.
MIA Fest will also feature a “Cause Village,” including a 20-foot art installation created by local artists. The cause village will connect festival-goers with resources around a variety of issues from voter registration, environmental sustainability, to social justice. Local artists may submit work to be featured through July 6th.
Tickets to MIA Fest are relatively affordable compared to other big festivals, with a 2-day pass under $200 after fees. For a VIP experience, be prepared to spend around $800 for the red carpet treatment. For tickets and more info, check out the Made In America website.
