This past weekend, September 1-2, the festival took over the Benjamin Franklin Parkway with nearly 30 musical acts, awesome guest appearances from huge A-listers, great food, beer and a weekend-long reminder of how well Philadelphia knows how to throw a party.
It was a pretty awesome festival. Below, we recap some of the action with some shots from the two days of the festival, including photos from some of the star performers, a look at the crowds that gathered here in Philadelphia for one of the year’s biggest musical events and more.
It’s definitely very cool that the “Made in America” Festival happened here, as opposed to New York, D.C. or any other city in the country for that matter. So a huge thank you to Jay-Z for bringing the festival to Philadelphia, and to Mayor Nutter for making it happen.
We’re already looking forward to next year…
Scenes from Day Two, below.
As a bonus, we’ve got a few clips from the show below.
On Day One, on the main stage, Passion Pit closed their 45-minute, late-afternoon set with “Sleepyhead.”
On Day Two, Run-D.M.C., performing for the first time together in more than a decade, closed their set with “Walk This Way,” with Jay-Z watching and cheering from the front row of the crowd. Pretty awesome.
So yea, Made in America 2013, right? Let’s make it happen…
