Jay-Z's festival 'Made In America' returning this year

Jay-Z’s ‘Made In America’ festival is coming back this September.

The event was started back in 2012 by Jay-Z and is curated by the legendary rapper too. However, the annual Philadelphia event was cancelled last year because of the coronavirus pandemic. The 2021 event will take place over September 4th-5th at the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia. A line-up announcement is expected shortly.

Made in America 2021 is in aid of the ACLU of Pennsylvania, the event’s official charity partner and the REFORM Alliance, a criminal and prison justice reform organisation based in Arkansas.

“We are thrilled to announce Made in America 2021 on the legendary Benjamin Franklin Parkway. This year will be like no other, as Made in America celebrates 10 years of music history making moments,” Jay-Z said in a statement.

“The artists’ performances will be even bigger and Cause Village will host a wider range of amazing philanthropic organisations. We look forward to sharing incredible memories with our festival attendees and the city of Philadelphia.”
