Travis Scott will headline this year’s Made In America.
Travis Scott and Cardi B will headline the eighth Made In America festival, slated to occur Aug. 31 and Sept. 1 at Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
Other artists booked for the Jay-Z-curated event include Juice WRLD, James Blake, Kaskade, Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals, Kodak Black, Bazzi, Jorja Smith, Blueface, Kaytranada, Freddie Gibbs & Madlib, Tierra Whack and Pink Sweat$.
Made In America has become an institution in the City of Brotherly Love since launching in 2012. Last year, Nicki Minaj and Post Malone topped a bill that also included Meek Mill, Diplo, Zedd, Miguel, Janelle Monáe and more. In 2017, the most recent year for which Pollstar has box office data, Jay-Z, J. Cole and The Chainsmokers headlined the event, which sold 111,189 tickets and grossed $8.07 million.
The festival staged a Los Angeles edition in 2014 featuring Imagine Dragons, Kanye West, John Mayer, Kendrick Lamar, Juanes, Weezer and more.
Travis Scott’s Made In America booking continues the rapper’s massive year. Scott appears on the cover of Pollstar‘s current issue after topping the publication’s 2019 Q1 Top 100 Tours chart with a staggering 438,982 tickets sold. Prior to arriving in Philadelphia, Scott will headline several other festivals, including Firefly, Hangout, Boston Calling, Rolling Loud and Something In The Water.
“Travis is a rock star, there is no question,” the rapper’s agent told Pollstar. “There really is no one that comes close to the energy and the rapport that Travis has with his fans, onstage.”
Cardi B, meanwhile, will continue a strong year of touring. The rapper will perform at American festivals including Bonnaroo and Hangout; European festivals including Primavera and Roskilde; and at a handful of Midwestern arenas in July. In February, Cardi B and Bruno Mars played Atlanta’s State Farm Arena to close out the first Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest and grossed $6.47 million, setting a record for the venue’s 20-year history.
TIDAL users currently have access to a presale that last through April 4 at 10 p.m. ET; the platform will also livestream the festival. Tickets go on sale to the general public on April 5 at 10 a.m. ET. See the full lineup below.
