John Mayer and Imagine Dragons will headline Los Angeles' inaugural Budweiser Made in America Festival, set to take place Labor Day Weekend (August 30th and 31st) at Grand Park. The festival will also feature sets from Kendrick Lamar, Weezer, Juanes, Steve Aoki, Afrojack and Rise Against.
The rest of the lineup boasts a variety of acts from across the spectrum, including Sublime with Rome, Metric, Schoolboy Q, Capital Cities, Cypress Hill, Chance the Rapper, R3HAB, Borgore, YG, Dr. Dog, Rita Ora, ZZ Ward, Nipsey Hussle, Classix, Hit-Boy, DJ Mustard, Ab-Soul, Isaiah Rashad, Jay Rock, SZA, Mute Math and Wolfgang Gartner, among others.
Founded and curated by Jay Z, the Made in America Festival will take place simultaneously in L.A. and Philadelphia, where it was held the past two years. Kanye West and Kings of Leon will headline the festivities on the East Coast, with the lineup also featuring Pharrell, J. Cole, Girl Talk, Spoon, De La Soul, Danny Brown, Chromeo, The National, Tiesto, Grimes, DJ Cassidy, Holy Ghost, YG, The Neighborhood, Kongos, AWOLNation, and Mayer Hawthorne.
Now in its third year, Made in America has already become a big player on the summer festival circuit, selling 120,000 tickets in 2013, according to Billboard. Mayor Eric Garcetti expects the L.A. expansion to inject millions into the local community, and while Councilman Jose Huizar expressed safety concerns over the number of attendees and proper street closures around Grand Park, the festival is expected to proceed as normal.
