Returning from the dead, Jay Z and Roc Nation’s ‘Made In America‘ Festival announced its 2021 return, bringing Justin Bieber and Lil Baby front and center to headline the two-day event. This event marks one of the very live performances Bieber has done since last releasing his two albums Changes (2020) and Justice (2021).
Unfortunately, the Made In America festival fell in line with all the other live events, having been forcibly cancelled for 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “2020 is a year like no other. We are in a pivotal time in this nation’s history,” Roc Nation previously said in a statement. “Collectively, we are fighting parallel pandemics, COVID-19, systematic racism and police brutality. Now is the time to protect the health of our artists, fans, partners and community as well as focus on our support for organizations and individuals fighting for social justice and equality in our country. Therefore, the Made In America festival will be rescheduled for Labor Day Weekend 2021.”
Earlier in June, the event announced the lineup for the festival weekend, including, but not limited to Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat, Roddy Rich, Bobby Shmurda, Baby Keem, Lil Durk, A$AP Ferg, Moneybagg Yo, Freddie Gibbs, Tinashe, Morray, 42 Dugg, EST Gee, and more.
The festival will take place in downtown Philadelphia, with proceeds benefitting the ACLU of Pennsylvania as well as The REFORM Alliance. Tickets are now available to purchase.
