With just a few days remaining until the "Made In America" Festival on the Ben Franklin Parkway in Philly, festival organizers released official set times on their Facebook page.

No surprise but Jay-Z and Pearl Jam claimed the nighttime headlining spots on the Rocky Stage. Jay-Z will play an hour and half set starting at 9:30 Saturday night while Pearl Jam is set for two hours starting at 9 Sunday.

Most of the other “main stage” artists will play 45 minute sets.

Joining Jay-Z on the Rocky stage Saturday is Gary Clark, Jr. (2-2:45), Maybach Music Group -- featuring Philly’s Meek Mill (3:30-4:15), D’Angelo (5-5:45), Passion Pit (6:15-7) and Miike Snow (7:45-830).

On Sunday Philly’s own Santigold (2:45-3:30) and Jill Scott (4:15-5) kick off the Rocky Stage. Run DMC (5:45-6:30) and Drake (7:15-815).

Liberty Stage headliners are Skrillex on Saturday from (8:30-9:30) and X on Sunday from (8:15-9). The Freedom Tent is headlined by Calvin Harris (7-8:30) Saturday and Afrojack (7:40-9) Sunday.

The full lineup is available on Made In America’s website. Besides seeing who is playing when you can also print the schedule.

Tickets for both or just single days are still available.

Despite not being sold out, city officials say that the positive economic impact of MIA already was being felt in the city.

"It is encouraging and even exciting to see that the Festival is already doing positive things for the city," said Mayor Michael Nutter. "Labor Day weekend is normally a quiet holiday for the hospitality industry in the city. But the early reports we’re getting indicate substantially increased activity in our Center City hotels. We hope this will mean good news for the entire tourism and hospitality industry, including the many restaurants, shops, museums and bars that those visitors will patronize."

The full economic impact of MIA won't be known until late September, Nutter said.
