Jay-Z’s ‘Made In America’ Festival Cancelled

As a result of “severe circumstances,” Jay-Z‘s Made in America music festival has been scrapped.

Founded by the iconic rapper in 2012, on Tuesday (8.08) organizers of the annual two-day event confirmed that the 2023 iteration will no longer take place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on September 2 and 3.

Taking to social media, the formal statement about the cancellation read:

“Due to severe circumstances outside of production control, the 2023 Made in America festival will no longer be taking place. This decision has been difficult and has not been made lightly nor without immense deliberation,”

“Made in America has a legacy of delivering exceptional experiences for music fans and concertgoers, and it is our commitment to always deliver a top-tier festival experience. We look forward to returning to Benjamin Franklin Parkway and the great city of Philadelphia in 2024.” 

Had it gone off as planned, this year’s festival would’ve been headlined by SZA and Lizzo along with featured performances by Mase and Cam’ron, Ice Spice, Miguel, Metro Boomin, and Lil Yachty.
