Via Pearl Jam’s press release, Pearl Jam, Passion Pit, Dirty Projectors will play Jay-Z’s Made In America fest which was announced last week. From the release:

We are pleased to announce that Pearl Jam is headlining Made in America Music Festival curated by Jay-Z. Made in America takes place Labor Day Weekend (Saturday, September 1st – Sunday, September 2nd) at Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park.

In addition to Pearl Jam, this 2-day music festival will include performances from fellow artists like Jay-Z, Passion Pit, Dirty Projectors and much more.

Philly.com is also speculating that Drake, Santigold and Skrillex are on the bill. This seems like bad news for Bumbershoot. Tickets go on sale Wednesday at 10 AM EST.
