The Made In America festival is canceled again this year

For the second year in a row, the Made in America festival has been canceled.

The 2024 version of the festival which is curated by Jay-Z, and produced by his entertainment company Roc Nation in partnership with concert promoter Live Nation, has been called off.

The announcement was made on the festival’s social media accounts just after noon on Wednesday. “Made in America will not take place in 2024,” the statement read. It went on to say that “As purveyors of change, the Made in America executive production team is reimagining a live music experience that affirms our love and dedication to music and the work we do. We promise an exciting return to the festival.”

Made in America was first staged on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia in 2012, with Jay-Z and Pearl Jam as headliners. It continued every year on Labor Day weekend until it was cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, then resumed the following year. It was last staged in 2022, when Puerto Rican rap star Bad Bunny headlined the closing night of the festival, which drew a crowd of 50,000 to the main stage set up in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Rocky Steps.
