Jay-Z announces return of Made in America festival in September

The festival will return to mark its 10th anniversary following a pandemic-enforced hiatus

Jay-Z is bringing his Made In America festival back to Philadelphia later this year.

After taking a year out in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the festival is set to mark its 10th anniversary on the Labor Day weekend of September 4th and 5th, at its usual Benjamin Franklin Parkway home. 

“We are thrilled to announce Made in America 2021 on the legendary Benjamin Franklin Parkway," Jay-Z said in a statement. "This year will be like no other, as Made In America celebrates 10 years of music history making moments."

He continued: “The artists’ performances will be even bigger and Cause Village will host a wider range of amazing philanthropic organizations. We look forward to sharing incredible memories with our festival attendees and the city of Philadelphia.”

The festival's line-up is due to be revealed soon, but previous editions have seen performances from the likes of Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar and Jay-Z himself. 

Earlier this year, Jay-Z was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

He was also reported as having filed a trademark for a new TV and film production company last month.
