Jay-Z joined the mayor of Los Angeles today to announce that he’s bringing Made in America to L.A. in 2014. The two-day concert will be held Labor Day weekend, running simultaneously with the one in Philly. (So I guess this means we’ll have to fight over Beyoncé?)
Live Nation will produce both festivals, showcasing performances that will be available via live-streaming to fans across the country.
The entertainment lineup has yet to be announced, but you can follow updates on the new Made in America: Los Angeles page.
For $99.50 pre-sale passes to Philly’s Made in America, purchase tickets on Ticketmaster with promo code “BMIA2014.”

The hip-hop mogul described his decision to go meat and dairy-free on his blog saying, “One day before my 44th birthday, I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan…It just feels right!” And then Beyoncé Instagrammed the this photo of four meat-free dishes she’s ostensibly eaten, and, well, the Internet basically exploded.
As a pescatarian 20-something who can’t actually afford fish or cheese, like, ever, I’m pretttttty much de facto vegan. (I actually do make a conscious effort to maintain a dairy-free diet but sometimes, after a few too many margaritas, pizza just happens.) So with a little help from some vegan friends, I’m here to give my favorite famous couple some frank advice about what to expect during their 22-day experiment. Do you have any advice for Beyonce and Jay Z? Let us know in the comments.
