Jay Z Made in America Festival Full Lineup: Labor Day Concert in Philadelphia Features Drake and Kanye West

Festivals are going head to head this weekend with the EDM Labor Day Weekend tradition Electric Zoo going down in New York City, and the inaugural Made in America festival taking place in Philadelphia. Made in America is sponsored by Jay-Z, a man whose energy and projects seem to have no end. In Rocky-esque fashion the festival's main stage sits at the foot of the Philadelphia Art Museum steps. 


The festival kicked off on Saturday with a lineup of high-profile performers including Miike Snow, Passion Pit, and Calvin Harris. Jay-Z himself closed out the night, with a showstopping performance. The rap legend entered the stage spitting his famous line, "Allow me to re-introduce myself." A list of high-profile guests joined Jay on stage -- the first of which was President Obama who greeted the crowd via video. As the show neared it's end, Jay's famous friend Kanye West stormed the stage with his G.O.O.D. Music posse. Jay and Kanye ended the evening with their hit, "Ni**as in Paris." 



Sunday's biggest performances will be acts including Drake, Pearl Jam, and Santigold.
