Once word got out that Jay-Z would be coming to Philly this week to make a major announcement with Mayor Nutter, rumors and speculation spread like wildfire. "I hear Jay-Z is headlining the Welcome To America concert on 4th Of July.." wrong... "I heard he'll be performing at the Roots Picnic this year!" Nope. Jay & Mayor Nutter put all of the rumors to rest on Monday morning, announcing a 2 day music festival along the JFK Parkway called "Made In America". 

The festival, sponsored by Budweiser, will feature over 20 musical acts of all genres on 3 stages. Jay-Z stated that "70% of the acts are confirmed" with names to be announced very soon. Not only will this event boost the economy and culture of Philadelphia, part of the proceeds will be donated to United Way. In other words, everyone leaves with a smile on their face, and helps support a great cause in the process.

Tickets go on sale through on Wednesday, May 23rd, with a limited number of 2-day passes available. If you don't have the patience to wait an extra day, "like" Budweiser's Facebook page for a chance to grab tickets 24 hours earlier on Tuesday, May 22nd...
