Jay-Z's Budweiser Made in America Festival to livestream event
YouTube and Pandora will livestream the inaugural Budweiser Made in America Festival, which takes place over Labor Day weekend features Run-DMC and Pearl Jam, among others.
The two-day Philadelphia concert, curated by Jay-Z, is set for Sept. 1-2 along Benjamin Franklin Parkway, though non-festivalgoers will be able to tune in via YouTube and Pandora from 2 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET to catch more than a dozen artists, including Skrillex, Miike Snow, Afrojack and D'Angelo.
"People turn on Pandora to discover music they love and, through this unique collaboration with Budweiser, this is the first time they can enjoy a music festival in real time regardless of their location," Pandora's Chief Revenue Officer John Trimble said in a press release. This will mark the online music platform's first-ever livestreaming event.
Budweiser Made in America Festival will showcase a mix of genres including rock, hip-hop, R&B, Latin and electronic, with the hope of attracting a variety of concert goers to help raise money for the event's beneficiary, the United Way.
Ticket information is available at the festival's website.
