This Labor Day weekend, the city of Los Angeles will host the inaugural Budweiser Made in America Festival. It will be a history making event by being the first American festival to be ran simultaneously on both the East and West coast, with Philadelphia hosting as well. Would you party for a good cause? If so then you will also be pleased with the fact that some of the proceeds will be used to benefit the United Way of a greater Los Angeles, not to mention the surge surrounding businesses will experience with the influx of people coming into the heart of LA to hear some great tunes by some very major artists. It is literally a win-win for everyone involved.
Now let’s get to the lineup, because we all know that a festival is only as good as the talent that is being showcased. “Budweiser’s Made in America” is the perfect nomenclature for this event because America is a melting pot of all cultures and backgrounds, and that is well represented by the eclectic lineup Budweiser has out together. No matter your preference of genre, you will undoubtedly be drawn to more than a few acts throughout the weekend that will suit your musical palette.
Representing for the Indie/Rock/Alternative genres we will be jamming out to Imagine Dragons, Metric, Capital Cities, MuteMath, and Dr. Dog on Saturday, followed the by the likes of John Mayer, Weezer, Rise Against, and Sublime with Rome, Terraplane Sun and Scavenger Hunt on Sunday. HUGE!
Holding it down for the EDM community we have sets from Tiesto, Gareth Emery, Classix, Cut Snake, Grandtheft, Borgore, and DVBBS kicking off the Saturday rager followed on Sunday with performances from Steve Aoki, Wolfgang Gartner, R3hab, 12th planet, YellowClaw and Will Sparks. EPIC!
Hip hop heads will also be most delighted to see LA’s very own TDE Crew, including Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, Jay Rock and Isaiah Rashad appearing on Saturday along with Hitboy and YG hitting the stage followed by Nipsey Hustle, Chance The Rapper, Cypress Hill and the never boring Kanye West calling off Sunday. Adding even more diversity (if you could imagine), Latin pop/rock artist Jaunes, neo-soul sensation SZA, as well as the soon to be queen of r&b, Miss Rita Ora also rocking out with us on Sunday.
Tell us which artist are you most excited to see this weekend at Budweiser Made in America?
