The event will take place on Saturday the 1st of September and Sunday the Second of September this year in benefit of United Way.
A total of 30 artists will join Jay Z, all of which are said to “embody the American spirit”.
Tickets for the two-day Budweiser event will go on sale from the 23rd May on Ticketmaster.com and Livenation.com. Budweiser fans can get a day’s jump on everyone else by buying tickets through the Budweiser Facebook page on the 22nd of May.
“This Labor Day, we will not only make history but we’re benefiting a great organization. ‘Budweiser Made in America’ will encompass every genre of music, creating and showcasing the only genre that matters, ‘great music.’ Budweiser and Live Nation are going to produce an amazing two days of performances, and it’s great to partner with United Way again to support all of the positive work they do in the community,” said Shawn “JAY Z” Carter.
Two-day tickets for the Budweiser Made in America Festival will cost $99. For Budweiser fans that cannot make the event, it will be streamed live over the internet.
