The Budweiser Made in America Festival, otherwise known as Jay-Z’s festival, is a socially conscious, home-grown festival that descends on Philadelphia from August 31 – September 1 this year. The festival, while only in its second year, has a clear, mindful focus. To bring people, a free-spirited attitude, and social issues together in one place, all to the beat of some incredible music. At last year’s Made in America, flyers were passed out, activist booths flourished, and there was a spirit of change in the air. No doubt Jay-Z and his team will infuse this year’s event with the same spirit, while at the same time treating festival-goers ears to some of the best hip-hop, EDM and rock acts on the scene right now. Here are 2 emerging artists and 1 established act that we think are worth checking out.
