Made In America, the festival curated by artist Jay-Z (pictured), has been cancelled for the second year in a row. 

The festival, which was founded in 2012, has traditionally run in September in Philadelphia.

It was also cancelled last year, just a few weeks before the event was due to be headlined by Lizzo and SZA. Organisers said the cancellation was “due to severe circumstances outside of production control”.

This year, the reason behind Made In America’s cancellation is even more vague.

In a statement, organisers said: “Made In America will not take place in 2024. Since its inception, this groundbreaking festival has celebrated music & community – from creating a space for fans to connect, to uplifting local small businesses and shining a light on important causes. It has strived for accessibility, eliminating barriers through affordable tickets and location.

“As purveyors of change, the Made In America executive production team is reimagining a live music experience that affirms our love and dedication to music and the work we do. We promise an exciting return to the festival.”

The first edition of Made In America attracted over 80,000 people.
