Summer has barely begun but we are already fired up for Made in America 2017. The popular music festival on Benjamin Franklin Parkway takes place over Labor Day Weekend each year, for two unforgettable days of music, great food and even better vibes. This year, the festival falls on Sept. 2 and Sept. 3.

So how about the lineup? For year five, hip hop superstar and Queen Bey’s hubby (and festival curator) Jay Z will be headlining along with “Foldin Clothes” singer J. Cole. Other highly anticipated performers include The Chainsmokers, Kaskade, Solange, Marshmello, Run the Jewels and more.

Headliners of past Made in America editions included Jay Z and Pearl Jam in 2012, Beyonce and Nine Inch Nails in 2013, Kanye West and Kings of Leon in 2014, Beyonce and The Weeknd in 2015 and Rihanna and Coldplay in 2016.

 

While Jay Z is a huge name, J.Cole as the second headliner is an interesting choice, given he's not as much of a household name as previous headliners. 

 

There has also been speculation as to the future of Made in America as Live Nation's contract with the city is set to expire this year, according to Philly Voice. While Mayor Kenney is quoted in the article as saying he wants to "keep it beyond 2017," there hasn't been discussion of contract negotiations for beyond 2017 yet.

 

Will the festival stay here? Will it undergo big changes? Only time will tell.
