“Last year Pearl Jam, Miike Snow, Gary Clarke Jr., Odd Future, Skrillex and Janelle Monáe killed,” commented JAY Z.  “This year, we have Nine Inch Nails, Beyoncé, Empire of the Sun, Kendrick Lamar and deadmau5.  This festival is all about experiencing great music and performances as a family.  I can’t wait to get back to Benjamin Franklin Parkway, see some stage diving, walk through the crowds, drink a little and rock out again.”

Musical acts confirmed to perform are:
Beyoncé, Nine Inch Nails, Queens Of The Stone Age, deadmau5, Phoenix, Calvin Harris, Empire Of The Sun, Imagine Dragons, Wiz Khalifa, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Miguel, Public Enemy, Solange, 2 Chainz, The Gaslight Anthem, A$ap Rocky, Walk The Moon, Nero, Feed Me, Porter Robinson, Wolfgang Gartner, Fitz & The Tantrums, Emile Sandé, Haim, Schoolboy Q, AB Soul, GTA, Robert Delong, Redlight, Mord Fustang, Alunageorge, Jay Rock, Jesse Rose and TJR.

“Budweiser has a decades-long history of celebrating great American music,” said Paul Chibe, Vice President of U.S Marketing at Anheuser-Busch.  “A music festival is one of the most powerful ways to bring people together, so we’re thrilled that once again the incomparable JAY Z and United Way have joined us to ensure that Budweiser Made in America brings a world-class line-up of music to Philadelphia this Labor Day Weekend.”

This concert will benefit United Ways in Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey and Lancaster County, PA.  A primary goal of this music festival is to have a positive impact on the communities involved. As a result of this concert, the money invested into these communities will positively impact the education, income and health of the most vulnerable and most needy citizens in these regions.

As a result of last year’s Budweiser Made in America festival, United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey is investing more than $350,000 into education and talent development initiatives to enhance cradle-to-career education that ensures all students graduate high school college- or career-ready and equips individuals with the job skills and training they need to secure work that provides a family-sustaining income.

The festival also enabled United Way of Lancaster County to invest an additional $100,000 in programs and services that support learning success across the education continuum.

“The debut of the Budweiser Made In America festival last year was a huge event for music fans from all over the Northeast, ” said Mark Campana Co President of North American Concerts, Live Nation.   “The two-day festival will once again feature an incredible and diverse roster with Beyoncé, Nine Inch Nails, deadmau5 and so much more.   The beautiful location of the Ben Franklin Parkway combined the wonderful spirit of Philadelphia creates a once-in-a-lifetime festival experience that no music fan can miss.”

“Once again, I am thrilled to announce that the Budweiser Made in America Festival has chosen Philadelphia as its home,” said Mayor Michael A. Nutter.  “Last year’s event, hosted on the historic and dynamic cultural corridor of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, was a huge success, significantly impacting our local economy.  The City of Philadelphia is excited to welcome back JAY Z and Made in America.”

Described as “veritable music lover’s paradise over Labor Day weekend,” the 2012 “Budweiser Made In America” music festival featured 28 performers including JAY Z, Pearl Jam, D’Angelo, Afrojack, Jill Scott, Run DMC, Odd Future, Skrillex and Passion Pit.  In its debut, the festival received rave reviews, with press such as the Philadelphia Inquirer noting, “There was no arguing with Made in America’s ability to put on a diverse set of musical acts…the fest…worked as a uniquely urban, impressively varied draw for a multiracial millennial generation crowd.”

Spotify is the official digital music sponsor for the Budweiser Made in America Festival and will be presenting exclusive content and producing exclusive on-site activations.

The Budweiser Made In America Festival art features a work from the acclaimed American artist, Richard Prince.  The piece used is called “Untitled (The Velvets).”  It was created in 2007 and is collage and acrylic on canvas.

Multi-platinum Grammy-nominated Island Records group Fall Out Boy finally puts an end to years of rumors and speculation, with the official announcement today from their hometown of Chicago that the band has returned and will globally launch their new single –My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)” today at iTunes (http://smarturl.it/MSKWYDITD).  They commemorated the occasion at the site of the original Comiskey Park, the location of Disco Demolition Night in 1979, as they were burning albums.

My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)” is the first single from Fall Out Boy’s new album, SAVE ROCK AND ROLL, which will be released on May 7th, 2013, the 10th anniversary of Fall Out Boy’s first full length studio album in 2003, Take This To Your Grave. Pre-orders for the album are at www.falloutboy.com. In conjunction with today’s news, Fall Out Boy will play three intimate one-night-only club dates for their fans this week, starting tonight in Chicago (Subterranean), tomorrow night in New York City (Webster Hall Studio), and Los Angeles (Roxy) on Thursday night (February 7th).  The SAVE ROCK AND ROLL U.S. tour kicks off May 14 in Milwaukee, WI at the Rave (tour dates to follow). Tickets will go on sale February 8th and 9th at Ticketmaster.

Statement from Fall Out Boy:
“When we were kids the only thing that got us through most days was music. It’s why we started Fall Out Boy in the first place. This isn’t a reunion because we never broke up. We needed to plug back in and make some music that matters to us. The future of Fall Out Boy starts now. Save Rock And Roll…” Pete, Patrick, Andy and Joe

SAVE ROCK AND ROLL is Fall Out Boy’s fifth studio album, and is their first new studio album since Folie Á Deux in December 2008.
