Mr Carter selects Mrs Carter to headline eclectic music festival
The Made In America Festival has announced its line-up for this year’s festival and once again they’ve got Jay Z on curating duties. The rap god may not be performing himself this year but he has enlisted the help of his good wife Beyonce (or should we call her Mrs Carter now?) to headline one of the days, as well as Nine Inch Nails, in what looks to be a pretty eclectic mix of pop, dance, rock and hip-hop.
The festival will take place on August 31 and September 1, 2013 and tickets went on sale yesterday (April 10, 2013) to American Express cardmembers and fans of the Budweiser Made In America Facebook page, Billboard.com have reported. The limited sale continues until April 16 and the following day, tickets will be more widely available on public sale. Explaining the diverse mix of talent that will be performing at the festival, Paul Chibe, Budweiser’s V of Marketing said “The point of having that diversity in our music lineup we’re trying to expose the people to different types of music… Much like last year, where if you never saw Pearl Jam but you're a Jay-Z fan, we want fans of Beyonce or Calvin Harris or Wiz Khalifa to have the opportunity to see Nine Inch Nails or stuff they might have seen for awhile like Public Enemy. That eclectic mix creates an opportunity for us to really show the impact of music and culture.”
In addition to the headliners, festival goers will be able to catch Queens of the Stone Age, Deadmau5, Phoenix, Calvin Harris, Empire of the Sun, Imagine Dragons, Wiz Khalifa, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Miguel, Public Enemy, Nero, 2 Chainz, Gaslight Anthem and Aluna George, amongst others.
