Budweiser’s Made in America Festival took place over Labor Day weekend in Philadelphia and the performances were epic. The annual festival included a wide range of genres including hip-hop, rock, pop and EDM. Luckily this year was a huge success, after the festival had a disappointing year last year in Los Angeles.
The festival drew in over 70,000 music lovers at Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The event also streamed live in 45 countries through Jay Z’s music service, Tidal. Beyonce, The Weeknd, Modest Mouse, Metric, Nick Jonas, Big Sean, Death Cab for Cutie and many more headlined the 2-day festival.
Made in America was founded by Jay Z and Steve Stoute in a mission to bring music and culture together. There were several stages at the festival and each stage offered incredible performances from some of the hottest artists. Fans had a great time walking around the well-organized festival and enjoying some of the biggest performances of the year.
Nick Jonas surprised fans and critics with an awesome cover of OutKast’s hit song Roses. It was more of a pop version, but it was hilarious and pretty cool to see. Beyonce of course stole the show wearing multiple sexy outfits and belting out her hit songs. She got crazy on stage and put on a killer performance. One of the best parts of Beyonce’s performance was her husband Jay Z rocking out and singing along. He clearly was having a great time watching his girl take over the stage.
On Sunday, The Weeknd put on quite a show and performed a special remix of Beyonce’s song Drunk in Love. He added different raps in between the chorus and he nailed it. The crowd went wild and some say that was the highlight of the festival.
With such a successful festival this year, you can bet that next year’s Made in America Festival will be even bigger and better.
