Jay Z’s Made in America is going bicoastal. The music festival will take over Los Angeles and Philadelphia this Labor Day weekend.

The Roc Nation mogul appeared on the steps of L.A. City Hall on Wednesday to make the announcement alongside L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti, Budweiser Vice President Brian Perkins, and Live Nation President and CEO Michael Rapino.

The two-day festival, which benefits United Way, will take place on Saturday, Aug. 30 and Sunday, Aug. 31 at L.A. Grand Park.

It will simultaneously be held at Ben Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia for the third year in a row.

“Two years ago this was a dream to put a festival together, to have all types of music, different types of genres ’cause I believe that genres separate us,” said Jay Z.

Early bird tickets are on sale now. A two-day pass for L.A. costs $125-185, while Philly tickets range from $100-150.

The lineup has not been announced yet, but last year’s festival featured performances from Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar, Miguel, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Nine Inch Nails, and more.
