HOV himself, Jay-Z returns to the festival he created, Made in America for the five year anniversary of the mega-popular festival.
The 2017 installment of the festival returns to its usual stomping grounds of Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. As per tradition, the show takes place Labor Day Weekend — September 2 and September 3.
Besides being the creator, Jay-Z was one of the first headliners of the festival. One of the famed moments in MIA history is when HOV jammed with fellow headliners Pearl Jam on his hit song “99 Problems.” The rapper/business mogul was also the star of the Made in America documentary directed by Ron Howard. If you haven’t seen it — go out of your way to watch it.
The line-up for this year’s festival is eclectic as ever. Jay-Z will headline as will hip-hop superstar J. Cole.
