    Good news for music fans. The "Budweiser Made in America Festival" is back for Labor Day Weekend on the Ben Frankin Parkway.

    New this year, the “Made In America Festival" will be the first American festival to run simultaneously on both coasts. Live Nation, Shawn "Jay Z" Carter and Budweiser announced that the concerts will take place in Philadelphia and Los Angeles. 

    “There is something for everyone. Festival ticket-holders, cultural institution visitors and those with business on the Parkway are all welcome to take part in a relaxing weekend of holiday fun," said Mayor Michael Nutter. "With the success of the last two years in Philadelphia, the Budweiser Made in America Festival is expanding into a bi-coastal event which will bring the spirit of ‘Made in America’ to even more music fans across the country.” 

    The Los Angeles “Budweiser Made In America Festival" will take place on Grand Park in downtown Los Angeles. Which artists perform on which coast will be announced at a later date and live-streaming will be available for both concerts. 

    Tickets are on-sale now. The two-day early bird presale ticket can be purchased at www.livenation.com and are $99.50 in Philadelphia and $125 in Los Angeles. 

    Local United Way organizations will benefit from the concerts.
