Additional acts will be named in the next several weeks for the Benjamin Franklin Parkway-held festival. Produced by Roc Nation with Live Nation, 2021’s Made in America benefits the ACLU of Pennsylvania as its official charity partner. A portion of the festival’s net proceeds also supports the Arkansas-based Reform Alliance, a criminal and prison justice reform organization. MIA’s Cause Village, the festival’s philanthropic footprint and hub for social action will also be attendance, again, as it has since 2012.
“We are thrilled to announce Made in America 2021 on the legendary Benjamin Franklin Parkway. This year will be like no other, as Made in America celebrates 10 years of music history-making moments,” Jay-Z said in a prepared statement. “The artists’ performances will be even bigger and Cause Village will host a wider range of amazing philanthropic organizations. We look forward to sharing incredible memories with our festival attendees and the city of Philadelphia.”
