Jay-Z has everything. To list his accomplishments, accolades and acquirements would be to sink into a pit of self-loathing at just how deeply the man owns at life. But apparently there’s one thing missing from Hova’s menagerie of awesome: his own two-day music festival.
Jay-Z will curate and headline the first Budweiser Made in America music festival, a two-day event that will bring up to 28 musical acts to Fairmount Park in Philadelphia on Sept. 1 and Sept. 2.
According to the New York Times, Jay-Z and Philadelphia mayor Michael Nutter are expected to officially announce the festival at a press conference on Monday morning. The festival is reportedly being produced by Live Nation, with tickets going on sale on May 23. No other performers have been announced, but if we know Jay, we know damn well that he’ll be bringing some heavy-hitter friends.
Tickets for the festival, which will give an unspecified portion of its proceeds to local non-profits via the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, will go on sale atticketmaster.com and livenation.com on May 23.
