Wow, another great and DIVERSE lineup at TIMF! I can’t wait for the Father John Misty/Deadmau5/Shamir collab!
Tenacious D’s little music and comedy event, “Festival Supreme” looks very promising this year.
Starting to really like the GoPro music stuff, this mini doc on The Weeknd’s recent visit to the O2 arena really captures the moment, nice work.
The guys from Dirty Vegas are coming in to do a VERY special acoustic performance for us this Friday 5/2 at 1pm in the third floor hangout.
See ya there!
This line up is NUTS.
Another great year at one of the most funnest festivals.
Really a great line up, super diverse and interesting acts.
from the Rolling Stone article:
Beyoncé, Nine Inch Nails, Deadmau5 and Phoenix are set to headline the second edition of Budweiser’s Made in America Festival in Philadelphia. The lineup for the Jay-Z-curated fest, to be held on the city’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway from August 31st to September 1st, also includes Queens of the Stone Age, Calvin Harris, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, A$AP Rocky, Wiz Khalifa, the Gaslight Anthem, Public Enemy and Solange. You can check out this year’s entire Budweiser Made in America lineup on Spotify.
Although Budweiser officials had discussed with Jay-Z the possibility of having him headline again, they decided it would dilute the impact of the festival to have the rapper perform in consecutive years. That’s not to say the MC won’t still pop up at the festival, Paul Chibe, vice president of U.S. marketing at Anheuser-Busch, tells Rolling Stone. “He potentially can [still] participate,” Chibe says. “He may show up. I know he’ll probably be there to watch his wife perform.”
Budweiser and Jay-Z sought a diverse lineup spanning sounds and styles for the second incarnation of the festival. “Many people would have said mixing Run-D.M.C. with Pearl Jam and Jay-Z [was ill-advised],” Chibe said, referring to last year’s headliners. “But I think we delivered an amazing experience. We worked with Jay to find the right mix of artists to bring this to life again.”
Ron Howard and Brian Grazer filmed the inaugural festival last year for a documentary about Made in America and Jay-Z’s rise to fame. If all goes according to plan, Chibe said, the documentary will be released before this year’s festival. “We’re hoping it comes out this summer sometime right before the next Made in America festival,” Chibe says. “It’s still in production and we continue to develop it. It’s an amazing narrative.”

I’ve probably been to over 150 shows at this venue since the 90’s, this was by far the best SOUNDING show I’ve ever seen, just incredible, almost disconcerting the way you could hear every note, very vocal.
Well done Phoenicians, well done.
The Orchard was kind enough to arrange a special performance by Denmark’s The Raveonettes back in October, here’s the video, much thanks to e-level audio, e-level films and GSP facilities for pulling off the show.
