Jay-Z has a busy September. In addition to christening his Barclays Center with its inaugural show on September 28, he's curating the Budweiser Made in America Festival which will happen Labor Day Weekend (September 1 and 2) at Philadelphia's Fairmount Park. No performers have been announced yet, but it's 28 performers on three stages, and ""will offer music fans from across the U.S. and beyond the biggest names in hip-hop, rock, dance and other popular genres". Tickets will go on sale May 23. (Part of the proceeds go to charity.) There will be a presale for $99 2-day passes on May 22 but you have to friend Budweiser on Facebook to get it.

Watch a teaser video for the Made in America Festival below.

It will get the job done, but it is a low quality product.

On a level of nothing more than logic and civic awareness, you are a first-rate f--ktard!

I would never say that Philly is better than NYC as a whole or better than Manhattan...but Philly is hands-down better than Brooklyn. This based on fact, not opinion.

@ 2:21 - The hummus is like your mom...pasty, mashed, easily spreadable and sometimes too salty.

Posted by Anonymous | May 14, 2012 2:41 PM

philly's a great town. i'm from nyc and live in nyc, but lived in philly and it is obviously not new york, but really cool place. much better spot than any other non-nyc north east city by far.

Posted by Anonymous | May 14, 2012 2:44 PM

Yeah, I don't really understand the Philly hatred around here. Just chalk it up to people acting like the normal fools that frequent this site....who have probably never even been here. But if you ever actually did visit Philly, what was it about this city that made you call it "4th-rate" or "the armpit of America"? My guess is that you're just a complete f--king a-hole who got treated here like you deserved. Just my guess though.

You are correct. Philly is actually a 2nd rate city.

Philly hasn't been gentrified like NYC has, therefore Philly still retains some of the grit and grime that NY lost 20 years ago. I'd rather be surrounded by creeps and scumbags than yuppies and hipsters.

"I'd rather be surrounded by creeps and scumbags than yuppies and hipsters."

Then Philly is for you. If you like creeps and scumbags you should check out Florida. You'd love it.

Hoagies you say? Fail. It is a sub sandwich.
Water ice you say? Fail. It is an Italian Ice.

Dopes.

@ 4:00 - Hahahaha, I hope you hate yourself for being a generic version of everything you attempted to rebel against. Am I really responding to someone who thinks a soft pretzel comes from a vendor who also peddles sweet nuts??!?! FAIL!!!!!! Any place that sells a 'sub' is making a crap version of a hoagie. Your local franchise and pizza shop are doing it WRONG!!! You are not original, you are a tool in the the most commonplace definition of the word.

Posted by Anonymous | May 14, 2012 4:09 PM

3:44 - you kinda nailed it! Bottom line, Philly has soul. Keep at it hipsters, you look like a high school kid trying way too hard to be "different". Cool Toms!

Philly is good and all, but it lives in NYC's shadow.
But don't go there preaching how "your from NYC" and expect to make any friends. Those Philly folk get offended by that.

But there is some nice stuff about Philly.
Drugs are cheaper, Beer is cheaper, and parking tickets are cheaper too.
So it's worth a visit every now and then.

As a real new yorker let me apologize for the people insulting philly. I doubt they're actual new yorkers, or they've lived here a very short period of time. I like philly and am aware that it's a fun place to get away to a catch a show and eat a good meal once in a while. I doubt I'm going to like a jay z curated lineup but if I do then sure I'd head down there. It'll surely have 25 extra IQ points mean over coachella and a ton less silly people.

Philly is like the Flyers - out in the first round.
Philly is like the Phillies - can't seem to win a game against the lowly Mets
Philly is like a cup of fresh piss - it seems warm and comforting at first, until you realize that it's all full of piss and that's nasty.

Posted by Anonymous | May 15, 2012 8:30 AM

The Flyers were not out in the first round.

PHILLIES VS METS

Number of meetings 852
Regular season series 453–397–1 PHI
Largest victory 19 runs (June 11, 1985;
PHI wins 26–7)


8:30, the only fact you got right was that people in Philly would enjoy dumping a cup of warm piss on you. Well, at least you have that going for you.

No, you're a middle class nobody whose greatest success will be peaking over the wall of mediocrity. Enjoy!

10:03 - you are 1-5 against the lowly Mets this year. As a matter of fact, with "on paper" best pitching in baseball, you are in last place in the Eastern Division.

You are entitled to your own opinion, but not your own facts. Suck it, Phillies stooge.

10:53 - What the F does that even mean??! NYC is a really awesome city and you had absolutely NOTHING to do with it's greatness. Your crippled view of civic pride is laughably absurd!

ps - The only thing around here that is sad and pathetic is that your parents thought it would be a wise decision to procreate. Let's just chalk it up to cheap drinks and poor judgment.
