At long last, more acts have been named to the Jay-Z and Pearl Jam headlined Budweiser Made In America Festival to be held on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway on Sept. 2 and 3.

Canadian rapper Drake, who is also the top MTV VMA nomination getter, along with Rihanna, is the biggest added draw. That's his picture. He'll be joined by Philadelphia's Jill Scott, Swedish garage-rockers The Hives, Soundgarden main man Chris Cornell, reuniting old-school rap heroes Run-D.M.C., and blues man festival fave Gary Clark Jr. 

Also rounding out the bill, and fortifying the electronic dance music aspect of the fest are beat makers Alesso, Nicky Romero, Michael Woods, Otto Knows, and the great DJ Shadow, doing a DJ set.

Organizers says this is the final lineup, which leads to the obvious Philadelphia-centric question: Where are The Roots?

My interview with Jay-Z from back in May when the festival was announced is here.
