Inside Scoop of Philly’s Made In America 2017
By Ella Healy
Each year on Labor Day weekend, Philly’s largest festival, Made In America draws in thousands of crowd members. The annual event took place on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway on September 2nd and 3rd this year and has been running since 2012.
The festival was and still is produced by Jay-Z and sponsored by Budweiser, and featured top tier artists such as The Chainsmokers, J. Cole, Marshmello and Kaskade this year.
Every year, the parkway is closed off and filled with multiple stages, skate ramps, food trucks, comfort areas, and some amusements. The event draws in more show goers than any other annual event in Philly each year. Both EDM, Hip Hop, and Pop artists are featured, usually some of the biggest names in the genres.
