“We are thrilled to announce Made in America 2021 on the legendary Benjamin Franklin Parkway. This year will be like no other, as Made In America celebrates 10 years of music history-making moments,” Jay-Z said in a statement in May. “The artists’ performances will be even bigger, and Cause Village will host a wider range of amazing philanthropic organizations. We look forward to sharing incredible memories with our festival attendees and the city of Philadelphia.”
This year’s Made in America festival will benefit its local charity partner, the American Civil Liberties Union of Philadelphia. A net portion of the proceeds will support The Reform Alliance.
Over the years, Made in America has seen performances from Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey, Drake, Pearl Jam, Nine Inch Nails, Janelle Monáe, Kendrick Lamar, Imagine Dragons, Kanye West, and more.
