NINE INCH NAILS & BEYONCE (?) To Headline The 2013 Made In America Fest - Details Available!
Damn! It has been confirmed that NINE INCH NAILS will be headlining the 2013 Made In America Festival alongside Beyonce. What the hell? Talk about festival promoters being way too eclectic!
The Made In America Festival will return to Philadelphia for Labor Day weekend on August 31 and September 1. Jay-Z once again curated this year's roster, but will not perform unlike last year's headlining set. Tickets are on sale for American Express card members and fans of the Budweiser Made In America Facebook page. Public on sale begins Wednesday April 17.
Other performers include Queens of the Stone Age, Deadmau5, Phoenix, Calvin Harris, Empire of the Sun, Imagine Dragons, Wiz Khalifa, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Miguel, Public Enemy, Nero, 2 Chainz, Gaslight Anthem, A$AP Rocky, Walk The Moon, Solange, Feed Me, Porter Robinson, Wolfgang Gartner, Emeli Sande, Haim, Schoolboy Q, Ab Soul, GTA, Robert DeLong, Red Light, Rudimental, Aluna George, Jay Rock, Jessie Rose and TJR.
"The point of having that diversity in our music lineup we’re trying to expose the people to different types of music," says Paul Chibe, Budweiser's VP of marketing. "Much like last year, where if you never saw Pearl Jam but you're a Jay-Z fan, we want fans of Beyonce or Calvin Harris or Wiz Khalifa to have the opportunity to see Nine Inch Nails or stuff they might have seen for awhile like Public Enemy. That eclectic mix creates an opportunity for us to really show the impact of music and culture."
Again, there should be a limit when it comes to how eclectic a festival lineup should be. What do you think? Let us know at the comments section below.
