Grand Opening, Grand Closing,after just one year, the Los Angeles installment has been cancelled of Made in America Fest, but Philly is still going on….The annual festival presented by Budweiser, and founded by Jay, hits Philly September 5 and 6. A smaller one-day Made in America show on New York’s Liberty Island is rumored to be happening June 21, with Mary J. Blige as headliner.
Reports the Los Angeles Times:
The festival, now in its fourth year, will again return to its birthplace of Philadelphia (Jay Z’s fledgling streaming service Tidal has been offering all kinds of ticket specials). But instead of staging a simultaneous L.A. edition, Made in America will host a free concert on New York’s Liberty Island, Billboard reported Thursday morning. (Billboard has since taken the story down from its website. The Times confirmed with representatives from Live Nation that the festival is not returning to Los Angeles.
Nothing has been confirmed yet by Jay Z… , but expect for any and everything Made in America-related to be streaming on TIDAL.
