Impossibly, September is just around the corner already (don’t want to talk about it), but the summer festival season’s not over just yet.
On Labor Day weekend (that’s August 30 & August 31, which is next week), the Budweiser Made In America Fest is coming back to Philadelphia for the third year in a row. (There’s also going to be one held for the first time over in Los Angeles!)
The two-day event, which is being held at Benjamin Franklin Parkway this year, promises to bring a diverse group of MuuMuse faves to the stage all weekend long, including dark princess Grimes (who recently popped up in the amazing new HAIM video for “My Song 5”), everyone’s favorite self-pronounced God and Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy maker Kanye West, synth-pop prince Penguin Prison and the eternally happy and ubiquitous Pharrell Williams, as well as dance floor titans like Tiesto, Steve Aoki, Gareth Emery and R3HAB. And for the indie-pop crowd, there’s plenty to love too — from Bleachers to The Neighborhood to Chromeo.
The show isn’t just for true lovers of music, either: It’s also benefitting some great local causes: United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, as well as United Way of Lancaster County.
The full line-up for the weekend is pretty great, and it goes something like this:
Kanye West, Kings of Leon, Tiesto, The National, Steve Aoki, Pharrell Williams, J. Cole, Girl Talk, Spoon, Chromeo, City and Colour, Grimes, AWOLNATION, R3HAB, Gareth Emery, De La Soul, Baauer, Tommy Trash, Mayer Hawthorne, Kongos, 3LAU, The Neighborhood, Danny Brown, YG, Holy Ghost, Penguin Prison, Destructo, Bleachers, DJ Cassidy, Cherub, Will Sparks, Young & Sick, Vacationer, Cut Snake, Kaneholler
