Jay-Z’s Made In America Festival to be Webcast on YouTube + Pandora
If you can’t make it to Jay-Z‘s curated Made in America Festival in Philadelphia over the Labor Day weekend, don’t fret. The two-day music extravaganza will be streamed online via YouTube and Internet radio service Pandora, according to Philly.com.
The Made in America Festival, which is sponsored by Budweiser, boasts musical sets from over 30 artists including Jay-Z, Drake, Rita Ora, D’Angelo, Run-DMC, Skrillex, Pearl Jam and Maybach Music Group’s Rick Ross, Wale and Meek Mill. The Life + Times blog released the set list for each of the artists for the two-day event (see photo on your left).
You can watch the festivities on YouTube’s Made in America Festival channel and at Pandora.com beginning at 2PM ET on Sept. 1 and 2. No word if the entire festival will be webcast or only selected performances. Either way, it should be a spectacular webcast for music lovers to enjoy in the comforts of their homes.
As we previously reported, Jay-Z’s Made in America Festival will be filmed for the big screen. Legendary filmmaker Ron Howard will helmed the concert movie with ad executive Steve Stoute and studio head Brian Grazer producing the flick. “The festival showcases 20 pre-eminent artists that speak to the new generation,” said Grazer. “It is going to be born through Jay-Z’s perspective . . . how he puts the event together.”
“[Jay-Z] stayed the king for a very long time … I can’t even begin to explain how he is capable of remaining relevant,” he continues. “He is a phenom, like a musical Michael Jordan.”
