You don’t get more American, or more Philadelphian, than the Made In American Festival. Playing at Benjamin Franklin Parkway, this is the third year of this huge event. This concert series brings in some huge names. Jay Z has played before, as has Kanye West, Steve Aoki, Chromeo, J. Cole, and more. This year it’s expected to be Kings Of Leon headlining things, with Pharrel Williams, Grimes, and Danny Brown among the names of others on the list.

This is a city-wide celebration of expressionism and thought-provoking performing arts. Philadelphia is known as one of the most culturally diverse cities in all of the country, and you can see this first hand with the 2014 Fringe Festival.
