(PCM) “Budweiser Made In America,” the JAY Z-curated two-day music festival is adding a TIDAL Stage where nine (9) stellar TIDAL Rising and TIDAL Discovery artists, featured on the global music and entertainment platform, will perform each day beginning at 2:45pm. The artists are in addition to the already announced “Budweiser Made In America” lineup which features headliners Beyonce and The Weeknd.
The “Budweiser Made In America,” concert will benefit United Ways in Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey and Lancaster County, PA. A primary goal of this music festival is to have a positive impact on the communities involved and the money raised will be invested into these communities to positively impact the education, income and health of the most vulnerable and most needy citizens in these regions. The money raised from last year’s “Budweiser Made In America” festival allowed the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey to invest more than $300,000 into education and talent development initiatives, to enhance cradle-to-career education, equpping individuals with the job skills and training they need to secure a family-sustaining income. The festival also enabled United Way of Lancaster County to invest an additional $100,000 in programs and services in education, financial stability and health.
