Drake, Run-D.M.C., and Jill Scott Added to Jay-Z’s ‘Made in America’ Festival

Drake, Run-D.M.C., and Jill Scott will all descend upon Philadelphia for Jay-Z’s “Made in America” festival. The artists are the latest to be added to the bill for the two-day concert extravaganza on Sept. 1 and 2.

Before he heads to the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, five-time nominee Drake will take the stage at Ben Frankin Parkway for Sunday’s show.

The concert also marks the return of the legendary kings of rock, Run-D.M.C., and Philly’s own Jill Scott, along with performances from Chris Cornell, Gary Clark Jr., and The Hives.

Previously announced performers include D’Angelo, Rick Ross, Wale, Meek Mill, Odd Future, and Rita Ora. Jay-Z will headline Saturday and Pearl Jam will close out the festival on Sunday.

Single-day tickets go on sale this Friday via Ticketmaster.
