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.

PLEASE NOTE: Made In America Festival will announce Pearl Jam’s exact performance date and time in the coming weeks.

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.

UPDATE: The fest has now confirmed Skrillex, Miike Snow, Afrojack, Calvin Harris, Odd Future, D’Angelo, Maybach Music (feat. Rick Ross, Wale, Meek Mill), Santigold, X, Janelle Monae, Prince Royce, Rita Ora, Savoy (DJ set), and the Knocks.

  1. Leave it to Jay-Z to curate the best festival lineup on his first try.

  2. are passion pit the new black keys? seems like they’re playing EVERYTHING

    • All they do is tour. I’m surprised they even managed to make an album.

      Interesting point. I’ve been wondering who will be the next alternative band to kind of be way, way huger than I ever imagined and Passion Pit’s odds are pretty good. They’re playing mid-sized amphitheatres on their upcoming tour, and by the time Coachella rolls around next year, I can imagine them being a subheadliner or even a headliner at the level of Black Keys, Kings of Leon, Muse or The Killers depending how commercially successful their new album is (Phoenix and Mumford & Sons are also likely candidates.)

  3. YES ODD FUTURE YOU KNOW I’M GONNA BE THERE!!

  4. Fuck yes, D’Angelo.

    That’s really all I have to say about this lineup.
