Made in America

There’s not a more perfect time to be at Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia than during Made in America on September 2-3rd! The Jay-Z created festival has always been a beautiful blend of genres such as hip-hop, rock, afro beats, pop, r&b, and electronic. Last year’s lineup featured Bad Bunny and Tyler the Creator as headliners, with amazing performances from artists like Lil Uzi Vert, Burna Boy, and Jazmine Sullivan. Though the lineup has yet to release for 2023, we have high expectations for performers this year and can’t wait to see who makes the cut. Early bird tickets are already available for presale at a special rate, so if you plan on making it to one of the hottest festivals of the summer, hurry while the price is low.
