With support from Los Angeles " Mayor Eric Garcetti, Jay announced his California-based Made In America festival a few months ago.
The Budweiser Made in America music festival is coming to Los Angeles, but who is performing and how the city will manage the two-day concert are still mysteries. Jay Z and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti held a news conference Wednesday to announce the music festival, which is planned for Labor Day weekend and will be held simultaneously with one in Philadelphia. They did not announce the lineup of performers or address residents " concerns about the venue -- a park in downtown Los Angeles that is crossed by several streets and partially surrounded by residential buildings.

During the conference, Young Hov expressed his goal to make the annual event bigger than a one-city showcase.
The announcement came at a press conference in L.A. Wednesday and is envisioned as a way to help revitalize the city "s downtown area. "Los Angeles is the perfect west-coast home for Made in America," Garcetti said. Jay Z noted that the expansion continued his dream of "putting together a music festival that blurred those lines of genres, that all walks of life and all people can come [to]." (Rolling Stone)
