Labor Day marks the de facto end of summer, so if there's any time to turn up before the temperatures get colder and nights get longer, it's now. There's a lot going on this last weekend of August, and one of the biggest events is the Budweiser Made In America Festival, which has expanded in its third year.
The annual two-day Budweiser Made In America Festival founded by Jay Z and Steve Stoute has grown to include not one but two cities. This year Budweiser Made in America goes coast to coast to feed the need of even more music lovers. The festival will still call Philadelphia home this Labor Day Weekend, but there will be a simultaneous festival happening on the West Coast in Los Angeles.
The inaugural Los Angeles fest will occur on August 30th and 31st at Grand Park in downtown LA, and the festival will benefit the United Way of Greater Los Angeles in order for attendees to party with a purpose. And party they will with a sick lineup that includes Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Chance the Rapper, ScHoolboy Q, Rita Ora, SZA and many more.
Those planning to attend the East Coast's Budweiser Made in America in Philadelphia need not be jealous of their West Coast counterparts, however. The scene will be set at Benjamin Franklin Parkway on August 30th and 31st for artists such as Pharrell Williams, J. Cole, Chromeo, De La Soul, Mayer Hawthorne and DJ Cassidy to take the stage. Kanye will also perform in Philly as one of a handful of artists performing on both coasts at both festivals this weekend. The United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey and United Way of Lancaster County will be the beneficiaries of Philadelphia's Budweiser Made in America festivities.
In addition to the star-studded, day-long concerts on Saturday and Sunday in each city, there will be a Cause Village set up in Los Angeles and Philadelphia with numerous charitable organizations. The Budweiser Made in America Festival is sounding like the event of the year for a combination of some good music and doing some good.
Tickets to attend this historic bi-coastal festival are still available and on sale online now. Budweiser Made in America Los Angeles two-day tickets or single day tickets for Saturday or Sunday can be purchased via Ticketmaster as well as Philadelphia two-day tickets or single day tickets for Saturday or Sunday.
