Made In America Music Festival
Labor Day weekend festival on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway returns
August 30-31, 2014
The Budweiser Made In America Festival is a massive musical celebration that takes over the Benjamin Franklin Parkway on Labor Day weekend.
With dozens of top performers and multiple stages on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the two-day music festival is one of the year’s can’t-miss events. New this year, the Made In America Festival is going bi-coastal with simultaneous festivals in Philadelphia and Los Angeles.
Last year’s lineup was incredible, with performances from Beyoncé, Nine Inch Nails, Public Enemy, Emilee Sandé, Solange and more. Stay tuned for additional updates on the 2014 lineup as they become available.
Concert goers at the Made In America Festival will be able to choose from three stages, a specialized food truck area, merchandise tents and a bevy of beer gardens.
If you are traveling to Philadelphia for Made In America, your best bet is to use public transportation to get to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. NJ Transit will be operating under the normal weekend schedule and SEPTA will be adding service to the Broad Street and Market-Frankford subway lines during the two-day festival. Late-night service will also be extended on select Regional Rail lines.
