Sponsored: Budweiser Made in America Festival #MadeInAmericaFest

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? 

With that being said, Busweiser’s Made in America Festival looks to be the premier ticket in LA this holiday weekend, star studded as we have become accustomed to in the city of Angels, so grab some buds, and come be American with us this weekend!

Tropher Jones – “Save Me” feat. James Bowers (Ultra Records)

avatars-000030920078-w51adi-largeTopher Jones is a breakout American DJ poised to take the country by storm and put Chicago back on the map as the house capital of the world. Hailing from the Windy City and signed to a major deal with Ultra Records, Topher’s current release schedule has been slammed with massive originals and remixes on the likes of Ultra, OWSLA, Dim Mak, Garuda, and Spinnin.

Topher’s music has been played by DJs across musical genres, from Tiesto to Skrillex, Armin van Buuren to Knife Party, Gareth Emery to Deadmau5, Above and Beyond to Afrojack. His records seamlessly cross musical boundaries as they dip and dive between big room house, dirty bass-lines, and carefully crafted melodies. A songwriter as well as a producer, Topher has a hand in every aspect of the recording process and takes great pride in creating songs with depth and character. His new single ‘Save Me’ feat. James Bowers releases April 8th, this will be Topher’s 6th single on Ultra Records.

Topher’s releases continue to put Chicago house back on the map, with his latest production finding him partnering once again with Chicago-bred singer/songwriter James Bowers, the vocalist on Topher’s single ‘Lost It All.’ He said; “When I first played this track live, the entire crowd was singing along and throwing their hands in the air by the second drop, that’s when I knew this record would be something special.”  Stream the preview below.
