Made In America gets better every year
Made In America 2019 brought out an amazing line-up, informative stations and perfect weather for the entire Labor Day Weekend in Philadelphia.
I’m always amazed at the amount of people who travel to Philadelphia for Made In America every year – people come from all over: New Orleans, Los Angeles, Sweden, Florida – EVERYWHERE. Every year the crowd changes but, this year it was a mixture of everyone and I loved it. Made in America has become a staple event that music lovers look forward to every year – making the festival their designated go-to for Labor Day plans. This year’s lineup including some heavy-hitters and newcomers in the game.
Some of my favorites from Day one included Calboy, Melii, Roddy Ricch and of course the Bronx’s own Cardi B. Calboy, Melii and Roddy Ricch all performed on the TIDAL stage giving us some exclusive music, sexy moves and bops that had us all vibing this summer. The TIDAL stage was the entire highlight of Made In America for me, having the most popular artists in the music industry including Lil Tecca, Megan Thee Stallion, Da Baby, Tierra Whack and many more.
Day two is always a madhouse but, with the line-up it was hard to choose which stage you want to spend most of your time at. TIDAL understands and gives the attendees and those who can’t to watch livestream the festival on the streaming service. Five o’clock was the toughest time with Gucci Mane performing at 5:45, Megan Thee Stallion at 6, Lizzo at 6:30 and Da Baby at 6:45 made the decision to figure out what stage is for you.
Overall, the festival was great this year. I loved how they added more non-profit tents, stations for selfies and gave a feel of other popular festivals such as Coachella and Governors’ Ball. Thank you to Jay-Z who brought the festival to Philadelphia – it’s always a pleasure covering.
