Rihanna and Coldplay are set to headline the upcoming “Made in America” 2016 festival on Labor Day weekend.
Among the other performers of the two-day festival are ColleGrove (2 Chainz and Lil Wayne), Jamie xx, Chance The Rapper, Martin Garrix, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, Grimes, DJ Khaled, Adventure Club, Madeon, Bryson Tiller, Gary Clark Jr, Travi$ Scott, DJ Mustard, SZA, A$AP Ferg and more, Billboard wrote.
The Jay Z-curated concert will benefit United Ways in Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey and Berks County in Pennsylvania for educational and health initiatives. The festival will be held at the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia on Sept. 3 and 4.
Tickets for the fifth season of Budweiser “Made in America” 2016 festival go on sale to the public on June 27 on Ticketmaster and Live Nation. Tidal subscribers, however, will have the first chance to purchase the two-day tickets starting on Wednesday (June 22) at 10 a.m. EST, Rolling Stone noted.
The International Business Times noted that “Made in America” 2016 festival tickets are being sold in two options. The first option is a bare two-day pass that grants the concertgoers access to the venue and nothing more. The other is a VIP ultimate experience pass. However, no details have been released on what extra access the VIP ultimate pass has. In previous years, VIP tickets have allowed concert attendees entry into a VIP lounge that offers food, a cash bar, private bathrooms and more.
Ticket prices have not yet been posted. Previous Made in America ticket packages ranged from $150 to upwards of $200. Beyonce and The Weekend served as last year’s M.I.A. Fest headliners, Billboard noted.
