Pearl Jam to Headline Jay-Z's Made in America Festival
Pearl Jam will be joining Jay-Z at the Made in America Music Festival. The rockers will headline one night of the Philadelphia event, set for Sept. 1 and 2 at Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Fairmount Park.
Jay-Z is curating the Budweiser-sponsored fest as well as headlining himself, it has been announced.
Other artists on the bill so far include Skrillex, Miike Snow, Afrojack, Calvin Harris, Odd Future, Maybach Music, Santigold, Dirty Projectors, X, Janelle Monae, Prince Royce, Rita Ora, Savoy, The Knocks, and Passion Pit -- a band who Jay-Z gave a shout-out to at his 2010 Coachella gig.
The festival will also play host to the long-awaited R&B comeback of singer D'Angelo, who is set to perform at the event.
Tickets for Made in America go on sale on Wednesday at 10 a.m. EDT. The festival is expected to include 28 acts overall.
"You know me -- I love the show of it," Jay-Z told Billboard last week. "I will reveal them in time and we'll do some silly things that no one understands and they'll figure it out."
