Jay Z Made in America Festival JAY-Z ANNOUNCES NEW 2 DAY FESTIVAL IN PHILADELPHIA

The “Budweiser Made in America” festival will feature nearly 30 acts “that embody the American spirit” across three stages at Fairmount Park on Sept 1. and Sept. 2, which is Labor Day weekend.

It’s such an iconic place, so it felt like a natural fit,” Jay-Z said of Philadelphia in an interview after the news conference. “You’ll get to come out and have two great days, listen to some amazing music (and) discover some new bands.”

Jay-Z was joined by Mayor Michael Nutter on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, made famous by the movie “Rocky.” A feverish crowd of fans was on hand, chanting his name. When one yelled out that Jay-Z was the best, the rapper paused and said: “I agree.”

New York-born Jay-Z said 70 percent of the acts are confirmed, and will include rap, rock, R&B, Latin and dance artists.

“I’ve always believed in great music,” he said. “I don’t believe in the lines that separate music. … That’s for people that can’t easily define what they’re hearing, so they have to put it in some sort of box. Me, I listen to anything I like.”

One of the most successful rock bands of the 1990s, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS made a huge splash with its 1992 debut, “Core,” which contained the mega-hits “Creep” and “Plush” and sold more than eight million copies.

In May 2010, the group released its sixth studio recording, “Stone Temple Pilots,” which hit No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and topped the Top Rock, Top Modern Rock/Alterative Rock and Top Hard Rock albums charts.
