Jay Z announced today (April 16) that he is expanding his “Budweiser’s Made In America” festival this year. Jigga announced that the festival will add Los Angeles to the list of cities the festival will hit. Jay Z spoke on the addition of LA in a press conference he held.
“I’m puttin’ together a music festival that blurs those lines of genre,” Jay Z says. “All walks of life and all people can come and it’s in the city. It’s not in some far off place that you can’t get to. No disrespect to any other festivals. No shots. But in the middle of the city, look how beautiful this park is. It’s accessible to everyone. It’s inclusion. It’s not exclusive. It’s not something that’s far away…We started two years ago in Philadelphia and had huge success and I’m sure we’ll have even more success in Los Angeles.”
Tickets for the two-day event in Los Angeles are available on Ticketmaster for $155. Tickets for the Philadelphia event are on sale for $117.
