Jay-Z’s “Made In America” Music Festival Will Streamed Live On YouTube and Pandora
Jay-Z and Budweiser are partnering with each other on the “Made In America” music festival this weekend on September 1st and 2nd in Philadelphia. YouTube and Pandora will be live-streaming the event for those of you that cannot make it to Philadelphia and see the concert live. The acts that are scheduled to play include Jay-Z, Skrillex, Wale, Meek Mill, Rick Ross, Pearl Jam, Jill Scott, Run DMC, Odd Future, Rita Ora. Below are the additional details about the live-stream that is happening 2PM-11PM on Saturday and Sunday:
For Budweiser, it was important to make sure the event was accessible to all fans — not just those that could attend in person. That’s why the brand made the decision to work with both YouTube and Pandora to bring the live stream to all fans.
While streaming live events is old hat for YouTube, this is a first for Pandora. Budweiser Made in America marks the first time Pandora has ever live streamed an event.
Even better, Pandora isn’t just streaming the event from its website — fans can tune in with the Pandora mobile app. “It was important that we reach fans wherever they might be,” Rob McCarthy, vice president of Budweiser told us. “Our goal is to reach as broad of an audience as possible.”
The festival will be streamed to the two services from 2pm – 11pm on Saturday and Sunday. Fans can access the YouTube stream at YouTube.com/BudMadeinAmerica and listen to the Pandora stream at Pandora.com/BudMadeInAmerica.
