Since 2012, Labour Day weekend in Philadelphia is marked by "Made in America", the music festival that changes the landscape of Philly for two days every year. Founded by Budweiser and curated by Jay-Z himself, the show has presented some of the best acts in the music industry. This year, the festival will crawl into the Ben Franklin Parkway again on September 5 and 6.
The festival organisers say that "Made in America" 2015 will witness many firsts. What do these include, you ask? Well, expect to find drones circling the venue, a Dubsmash booth and a Snapchat story for selfie crazy audiences.
Brian Perkins, vice-president of Budweiser, told Mashable that he has always wanted a drone circling the venue. "I just think it's going to offer another perspective and another point of view," he said.
We can't complain about anything that offers an alternate perspective or as many perspectives of Beyonce when she takes the stage on Saturday Night. The festival will end with The Wekeend, performing on Sunday Night.
If you have no plans for the weekend, you could still buy your tickets here. And if you are planning to head to Philly, Amtrack and NJ transit trains will take you to and from 30th Street Station, which is a decent 1.2 mile away from the venue.
For those who are planning to drive down to the windy city, check out philapark.org, or park our vehicles in garages and lots.
The festival will kick off on Saturday afternoon at 2pm and music will spill out until Sunday night.
On Saturday, 5 September, Beyonce, Nick Jonas, Meek Mill, Death Cab For a Cutie, Modest Mouse, De la Soul, Bassnectar and more will perform.
On Sunday, 6 September, the stage will lend itself to artistes like J Cole, Axwell^ingrosso, The Weekend, Future, Big Sean, A-Trak and other artistes will perform.
