Philadelphia welcomes the highly-anticipated Made in America festival today, which will take over the Benjamin Franklin Parkway for the weekend. The gates open at noon, and indie rock bands Walk the Moon (Rocky Stage) and Haim (Liberty Stage) will be among the first sets. Headliner Beyoncé won’t perform until the end of the night, so catch earlier acts like alternative rock band Phoenix and legendary hip-hop group Public Enemy on the main stage. And if you want to get your electronica fix, walk over to the Liberty Stage for Australia’s Empire of the Sun or the Freedom Stage for the UK’s Rudimental. But make sure you don’t miss out on homegrown hardcore punk bands, Balance & Composure and Restorations, who will take to the smaller Skate Park Stage.
Look forward to Sunday’s line-up, which will include a performance by industrial rock headliners Nine Inch Nails and sets by indie pop Fitz and The Tantrums, house and electronica musician Robert DeLong, and New Jersey’s indie punk The Front Bottoms.
