Jay Z's "Budweiser Made In America" Dates, Locations & Prices Announced

Jay Z's "Budweiser Made In America" festival is expanding.

Jay Z announced today (April 16) that Budweiser Made In America is set to have a two-day music festival in two cities this year, a first in the festival's three-year span. Both cities will have the Budweiser Made In America fest take place on the same dates, August 30-August 31. 

For the first time since the festival began, Jay Z's Budweiser Made In America music festival is slated to be held in Los Angeles' Grand Park, which Jay Z addressed at the press conference. 

"I'm puttin' together a music festival that blurs those lines of genre," Jay Z says. "All walks of life and all people can come and it's in the city. It's not in some far off place that you can't get to. No disrespect to any other festivals. No shots. But in the middle of the city, look how beautiful this park is. It's accessible to everyone. It's inclusion. It's not exclusive. It's not something that's far away...We started two years ago in Philadelphia and had huge success and I'm sure we'll have even more success in Los Angeles."

The event is also scheduled to take place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania's Ben Franklin Parkway.

Tickets for the two-day event in Los Angeles are available on Ticketmaster for $155. Tickets for the Philadelphia event are on sale for $117.

The event's Los Angeles date was subject to criticism, as reported today. Councilman Jose Huizar has warned that this event, which expects more than 50,000 attendees, could be "a nightmare" for downtown Los Angeles residents due to various street closures and beer sales scheduled to take place the day of the event. Huizar reportedly said those concerns are being ironed out, according to Fox.
