It’s year four and Budweiser’s Made In America Festival, curated by Jay-Z, has become one of the city’s most anticipated event not only for Labor Day Weekend but for the year. This year’s lineup up includes Queen B herself, Beyonce, who is headlining for the second year in a row. The Weeknd will also be headlining during the two-day festival. The vibe this year is hip-hop and R&B with no rock bands headlining, a first for the MIA festival. The festival brings in big money for the community — over $10 million will flow into the local economy during the weekend event. So support your community by attending this spectacular event!
