Jay-Z will curate and headline Made in America, a new two-day music festival that will bring nearly 30 musical acts to Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park from September 1st-2nd, according to the New York Times. The lineup will be formally announced tomorrow, and will feature “rock, hip-hop, R&B, Latin and dance” acts.
Tickets will go on sale May 23rd with a portion of the proceeds benefiting United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey.
aaaand this is why Obama shouldn't be at the festival. Not because it's below the dignity of the presidency or whatever, but because it will turn what should be a great time into a teeth grinding political debate.
