Lil Baby, Justin Bieber headlining JAY-Z’s Made In America Festival

Megan Thee Stallion, Bobby Shmurda, and more will also perform.
Lil Baby and Justin Bieber are set to headline 2021 Made In America music festival, event organizers announced on Monday (June 14). The two-day fest will return to Philadelphia later this year and will also feature performances by Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat, Roddy Ricch, Bobby Shmurda, Baby Keem, Lil Durk, Moneybagg Yo, Freddie Gibbs, Tinashe, Morray, 42 Dugg, and EST Gee. The announcement adds that more artists will also be announced soon.
JAY-Z, who first launched Made In America in 2012, revealed it would return for its 10th installment last month. The festival was canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We are thrilled to announce Made in America 2021 on the legendary Benjamin Franklin Parkway,” Hov said in a statement at the time. “This year will be like no other, as Made in America celebrates 10 years of music history-making moments.”
“The artists’ performances will be even bigger and Cause Village will host a wider range of amazing philanthropic organizations,” he added. “We look forward to sharing incredible memories with our festival attendees and the city of Philadelphia.”
As with past Made In America festivals, charities and philanthropic causes will play a large role in the weekend festivities. Proceeds from the event will benefit the ACLU of Pennsylvania and REFORM Alliance. Cause Village, which typically features several charities, will also be present.
According to The Philadelphia Sunday, past charitable causes at the festival have included criminal justice reform, female empowerment, youth development, LGBTQ+ rights, financial literacy, gun violence prevention, and more. A press release from Made In America also claims the festival has generated over $135 million in “economic impact for the city of Philadelphia” since its launch in 2012.
Made In America 2021 will take place at the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia on Sept. 5 and 6. Tickets are now available for purchase on the festival’s website.
