On Monday morning (June 14) Justin Bieber and Lil Baby were named headliners for Philadelphia's 2021 Made in America music festival.
Other well-known artists in the lineup include Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat, Roddy Rich, Bobby Shmurda, Baby Keem, Lil Durk, A$AP Ferg, Moneybagg Yo, Freddie Gibbs, Tinashe, Morray, 42 Dugg, and EST Gee. More acts will be named in the weeks ahead, along with the lineup for each day.
Jay-Z's festival will run for its tenth edition on Labor Day weekend, Sept. 4-5. Made in America announced its return on May 26. Produced by Roc Nation with Live Nation, the festival will benefit the ACLU of Pennsylvania as its official charity partner. A portion of the festival’s net proceeds will also support the Arkansas-based Reform Alliance, as well as MIA’s Cause Village.
A spokesperson for Roc Nation said the festival will be staged at its full size. In past years, Made in America has attracted as many as 50,000 people per day to see hip hop acts on four stages.
In a prepared statement, Jay-Z said:
“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. The artists’ performances will be even bigger and Cause Village will host a wider range of amazing philanthropic organizations. We look forward to sharing incredible memories with our festival attendees and the city of Philadelphia.”
Made in America was founded in 2012 and has been headlined twice each by Jay-Z and Beyoncé. Rihanna, Coldplay, Pearl Jam, and Nicki Minaj have also gotten top performance slots over the years. The hip hop-focused event, whose stage is set up in front of the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, was canceled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
