Made In America Announces Live Stream, Performance Schedule And Food Truck List Before The Festival Hits Benjamin Franklin Parkway This Weekend, September 1 And 2
Can’t make it to Made In America? You’re in luck, as YouTube and Pandora recently announced that they will be streaming all of the festival performances live on Saturday and Sunday, from 2 p.m. to 11 p.m. – basically, the next best thing to attending the festival in-person.
Also, tickets are still available at ticketmaster.com, but you better move quickly!
Benjamin Franklin Parkway has been transformed into Made In America’s festival grounds, which include three stages – appropriately named the Rocky Stage (the main stage, located at the Art Museum steps), Park Stage and Liberty Stage – and the sizable Freedom Tent.
Made In America is more than music, however. Attendees will have access to a the Arts & Culture Village, several lounge areas, a designated food truck area (more on that below) and much more. Check out the map below to see the full festival layout.
A variety of food trucks and vendors will be serving their fare at the festival. A food truck pavilion will be located at Eakins Oval and is slated to include local favorites like Lucky Old Souls Burger Truck, Pitruco Pizza, Guapos Tacos, Gigi & Big R Soul Food and many, many more.
Unfortunately, food can not yet be live streamed.
Keep reading, below.
Made In America recently released its performance schedule, including the times and locations for each act. Both days of the festival begin at 2 p.m. with performances taking place on at least one stage all day, until 11 p.m.
As expected, festival curator Jay-Z will headline on Saturday, hitting the main stage at 9:30 p.m. and on Sunday, the legendary Pearl Jam will close the festivities at 9 p.m. Check out the full festival schedule on the official Made In America Facebook page.
Before and After the Show
The Made In America performances don’t begin until 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, allowing plenty of time to check out a few places before the festival fun. Maybe start off the day with a delicious brunch at Sabrina’s, Lemon Hill or any of the other places named in our best places for brunch roundup.
Though it will be home to Made In America for two days, all of the museums and attractions along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway will be open during their normal hours – with the exception of the Rodin Museum, which will reopen Monday, September 3 – including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Barnes Foundation, the Franklin Institute and the Academy of Natural Sciences.
For the night owls, there is still plenty to do in the city after the festival concludes each day. If you still haven’t gotten your fill of music and dancing, head over to Morgan’s Pier or Silk City to keep the party going. Still hungry? Check out our top picks for late night food and drink deals.
In addition to all that is listed above, there are a ton of activities taking place over the course of the entire long weekend. Click here to check out our full Labor Day weekend guide.
