Hip-hop, fashion and club mogul Jay-Z is launching a two day festival to take place in Philadelphia this September.

Last year, Jay-Z rocked his Watch the Throne collaboration with Kanye West.  This year, the hip-hop mogul takes on new heights by curating and headlining his own music festival in Pennsylvania.

The newly dubbed Made in America festival presented by Budweiser will take place on Sept. 1 and Sept. 2 at Fairmount Park in Philadelphia.

Taking the stage will be 30 different musical acts who have yet to be named, in addition to Jay-Z himself as the headliner, and possibly President Obama if Jay-Z gets his way.

Tickets go on sale May 23, with all profits going to United Way programs throughout Pennsylvania and New York.
