Jay Z’s Made In America Fest Is Coming To L.A.
The Jay Z-curated, Budweiser-owned Made In America festival first came to Philadelphia two years ago and quickly established a rep as one of America’s better-put together big general-interest music fests. And now it’s expanding. As the Los Angeles Times reports, Made In America will come to L.A.’s Grand Park 8/30-31, Labor Day weekend. This won’t replace the Philly festival; instead, both shows will run simultaneously. (It’ll be interesting to see whether they’ll have two different lineups or whether someone will jet all those bands across the country between shows.) About 50,000 people are expected for the L.A. shows, and Jay and L.A. mayor Eric Garcetti made the announcement this morning. (People who live near Grand Park showed up to boo because that’s what people do.) Made In America hasn’t announced a lineup yet, but it’s coming soon.
