Jay-Z’s Made In America Event Confirms Lineup

Jay-Z‘s Made in America 2021 music event has just confirmed Justin Bieber and DaBaby as headliner.

Initially scheduled to take place last September at the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia, due to Covid-19 restrictions, the 51-year-old hip-hop star (born Shawn Corey Carter) was forced to cancel the festival’s 2020 iteration. The event will take place this September 4 and 5 at the same location with Doja Cat, Megan Thee Stallion, Roddy Ricch, A$AP Ferg and others slated to appear.

The Hip Hop-featured music festival, which has previously included Nicki Minaj, Kendrick LamarRihanna, and the rapper’s wife Beyoncé, will kick off during Labor Day weekend.

In the absence of last year’s festival, the ’99 Problems’ hitmaker encouraged everyone to focus on racial equality following the #BlackLivesMatter protests following the death of unarmed African American George Floyd with Roc Nation stating “The year 2020 will be unlike any other. We are at a critical juncture in our country’s history. We are battling parallel pandemics, COVID-19, systemic racism, and police brutality as a collective. Now is the moment to focus on our support for groups and individuals working for social justice and equality in our nation, as well as to safeguard the health of our artists, fans, partners, and community. As a result, the Made in America celebration will be moved to Labor Day Weekend in 2021.”

Those who bought tickets for the 2020 event can use them for the 2021 show, and those who are unable to attend this year can get a full refund from Live Nation that stated: “If someone wishes to receive a refund, an email will be issued to that effect. Please contact the place of purchase if you have any more questions about your tickets.”
