The highly-anticipated Made In America festival will take Philadelphia by storm on September 1st and 2nd this year. The comprehensive event features a number of household name music acts, as well as as a culinary competition, and other fun experiences. To get a taste of what to expect, check out this preview to the 2018 Made In America festival in Philadelphia.

The Music

At the forefront of all interested parties’ minds are the tunes, and luckily this impressive lineup speaks to a diverse range of tastes. At the top of the bill, we have Nicki Minaj and Post Malone, both massively successful pop artists whose hip-hop influences have pioneered a lot of talk and shares online.

One of the most impressive and anticipated performers of this year’s Made In America Festival is Janelle Monae, whose recent album Dirty Computer is hailed as a masterpiece by critics and fans alike. Rapper Meek Mill, whose spring release from prison served as an important civil rights event, will also grace the stage for his own highly anticipated set.

The Culinary Competition

On Sunday, July 29th—just a couple days before the music starts—The Made In America festival will host a culinary competition at the Fillmore. The competitors are squaring off for spots as vendors at the music festival, and the categories chefs are competing for will include Latin, finger foods, vegan, and desserts. Check out how to attend here.

Tidal Member Hookups

If you haven’t already downloaded Tidal to listen to that new Beyonce and Jay Z album, you might want to check out a 6-month free trial on the Made In America website. Not only will you get the long, free sample of the service, you’ll also get VIP treatment at the festival with things like artist meet and greets, access to a TIDAL lounge with charging stations, and a fast-track entry line to shows.

Cause Village

The last part of the Made In America experience that we’re going to share with you is Cause Village. The festival’s hub for philanthropic ventures and charitable causes, this area will feature booths helmed by nearly 60 organizations championing various important causes.
