We’re pretty certain Jay-Z has a list of things he hasn’t done yet right next to Blue Ivy’s crib. Sometime during Mother’s Day or possibly the week before, he looked it over, saw one glaring omission and decided to scribble it in. That feat? His own two-day music festival.

Jay’s in Philly today to presumably announce the first Budwiser Made In America music festival on September 1st & 2nd. Emanating from Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park, the event is said to bring in 28 musical acts from all different walks of music with Jay-Z as the curator and headliner. Live Nation is said to be putting on the festival and ticket sales will benefit local non-profits via the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey. Be ready to purchase tickets via Ticketmaster and LiveNation when they go on sale on May 23rd.
