We already knew this year’s music festivals were going to be some of the hottest in recent memory. As one of the last festivals before the season comes to a close, Made In America ’19 proved to be one of the best.
The festival, which was started back in 2012 by Jay-Z, has quickly cemented itself as a can’t miss festival on the circuit. This year’s Made in America featured unforgettable performances by some of the biggest names in music, rising stars, and fresh newcomers.
Cardi B and Travis Scott, who went head to head at this year’s Grammys for Best Rap Album, headlined Saturday and Sunday nights respectively. However, across both days, most of the hottest performances were on the Tidal Stage.
Countless acts tore up the stage with wildly energetic sets. The fans fed off of the artists’ energy and the artists fed off the fans’ for each performance. The stage served as a place to showcase some of the hottest rising stars in the game.

Don’t get it twisted, though. The Tidal Stage wasn’t the only place to find great performances in Philly this past weekend. Hometown legend Lil Uzi Vert went on right before Travis Scott and gave one of the most unforgettable performances of the weekend.
Other notable performances included Gucci Mane, MadeinTYO, Blueface, Lizzo, and Juice WRLD. The success of this year’s festival will only mean more growth for Made In America in coming years. More artists, more stages, more fans, more legendary performances.
On top of all the great music from the weekend were other ways for fans to enjoy their experience at Made In America.
There were dozens of food stands and trucks from bomb local Philadelphia eateries. Fans could also visit Cause Village, which featured stands from local and national organizations doing amazing work in our communities. Fans had the opportunity to learn about these groups and become part of their movements.
The music, the food, the community, and so much more were on full display last weekend in Philadelphia. Made In America ’19 was a festival for the books and we’re already looking forward to next year. We hope to see y’all there too.
