The Made in America music festival takes over the Parkway again this weekend. Mentioning the arrival of a music festival is kind of like saying, “It’s supposed to snow this weekend:” For some, the news inspires a flurry of squeals and jumping for joy, and for others, it inspires the urge to lock themselves in the safety of their homes until it’s over. But regardless of how you feel about music festivals, I’m betting you’ll enjoy this music-festival inspired playlist.

This week, we’ve loaded the workout playlist with artists that will be playing at Made in America, like Kanye West, Grimes, Pharrell and more. Plus, for your listening pleasure, we’ve sprinkled in some songs that just scream “America”—think Bruce Springsteen, Lenny Krativz and the Beach Boys. So whether you’re braving the Parkway to get your sweat on along Kelly Drive this weekend or just dancing in your crowd-free living room, these beats will keep you moving.

This big guy stays calm and collected around children, noise and other dogs, making him a great partner for runs through the city. When he’s not out pounding the pavement around Northern Liberties, you can find him getting belly rubs at Street Tails Animal Rescue. Find out more about Taney below.
