    Default Jay-Z/Budweiser Made In America Festival

    Guessing the Roots will play but who else might join Hova's festival?

    Jay-Z may have one of the most successful and lucrative careers in hip-hop, a talented and renowned wife, a much cooed-over baby girl and part ownership in the soon-to-be Brooklyn Nets basketball franchise. But does he have his own two-day music festival? Well, he’ll soon have that, too.

    On Monday, it is expected to be announced that Jay-Z will be the curator of and headlining performer at the first Budweiser Made in America music festival, a two-day event that will bring as many as 28 musical acts to Fairmount Park in Philadelphia on Sept. 1 and Sept. 2. (Sorry, Brooklyn, but hasn’t Jay-Z done enough for you already?) The festival, which will be produced by Live Nation, is to be formally unveiled at a Monday morning news conference with Jay-Z and Mayor Michael A. Nutter of Philadelphia and will assemble an eclectic lineup of “rock, hip-hop, R&B, Latin and dance” musicians, according to a news release from its organizers. No other acts chosen by Jay-Z were immediately announced, but when you have Kanye West on speed dial and share a home with Beyoncé, presumably opportunities are rife.

    Tickets for the festival, which will give an unspecified portion of its proceeds to local non-profits via the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, will go on sale at ticketmaster.com and livenation.com on May 23.

    Live Nation/Jay-Z have almost an infinite amount of money and connections to pull this off. Hopefully Jay-Z puts on some good artists, but the line up could go either way. I hope they dont shit the bed on this one.

    it has budweiser in the name. I'm sure they also need to clear every band that plays. nobody will play that is not commercially lucrative.

    Rihanna will be one of the headliners.
    I can see Solange, The Roots and Janelle Monae on the undercard.
    The Ting Tings and Santigold will also probably be there. I could maybe see a N.E.R.D, Jack White & MGMT on the bill.
    Stevie Wonder would be a dope headliner with Rihanna + one classic rock band that sells a shit load of tickets. That would be variety.

    Only 70% lol....

    Update 5/14/2012: Jay-Z did not reveal lineup details at the press conference in Philadelphia this morning, but said that “70 percent” of artists performing have been confirmed. He spoke about his love for the city, stating, “Everyone knows my love affair with Philly from the amazing, talented artists I’ve signed” prompting rapper Freeway to join him on stage. Jay also mentioned that he will be doing film work with Will Smith, a Philadelphia native.

    "There will be a presale for $99 2-day passes on May 22 but you have to friend Budweiser on Facebook to get it."

    28 bands, 3 stages, 1 weekend -all curated by Jay Z.

    Isn't RiRi in Jay's dog house?

    I would think Jay's newest artist, Rita Ora, is a lock.
