PHILADELPHIA — Jay-Z is in a Philadelphia State of Mind.
The rapper is set to announce a two-day music festival Monday in Philadelphia. It will feature nearly 30 acts "that embody the American spirit" across three stages at Fairmount Park on Sept 1. and Sept. 2, which is Labor Day weekend.
Jay-Z will be joined by Mayor Michael Nutter on Monday. The "Budweiser Made in America" festival will benefit United Way Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey. Tickets go on sale May 23 and will include rap, rock, R&B, Latin and dance performers.
In a press release, the New York-born rapper said he's excited to assist United Way because of its community efforts and he hopes to showcase the many genres of music with the live performances.
