Made In America Festival 2023 Cancelled

Made In America Festival organizers have disclosed that this year’s extravaganza has been annulled to severe circumstances outside of production control, the 2023 Made In America Festival will no longer be taking place,” read the official statement shared across their social media platforms. “This decision has been difficult and has not been made lightly nor without immense deliberation.”

The crew flattered themselves on having “a legacy of delivering exceptional experiences for music fans and concertgoers,” and shared, “It is our commitment to always deliver a top-tier festival experience.”

They foresee returning to Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway in 2024 and confirmed that all ticket holders will be fully refunded at their original acquisition point.

Originally, the two-day festival had SZA and Lizzo chosen as its headliners, with the rest of the star-studded lineup featuring Miguel, Tems, Metro Boomin, Ice Spice, Coi Leray, Latto, Lil Yachty, Doechii, Lola Brooke, Coco Jones, Paris Texas, TiaCorine, Eem Triplin, Flau’jae Johnson, Tanerélle, Weston Estate, and a special collaborative set by Mase and Cameron.

There’s no word on whether or not Lizzo’s current lawsuit partially affected the festival’s decision. Since news of the lawsuit from three of her former dancers emerged, the “Special” vocalist retained legal services from Marty Singer, who has previously represented Chris Brown, Bill Cosby, Whitney Houston, Eddie Murphy, Kim Kardashian, and more.

The Made In America Festival revocation arrives weeks after the Harlem Festival Of Culture called off its inaugural debut. Their decision was reportedly based on President Biden’s call to action regarding the excessive heat advisory and poor air quality.
