Made In America attendance figures


The attendance figures are in for the Budweiser Made In America festival, which took place over the weekend on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. 

On Saturday, when Jay-Z was headlining, the fest drew 41,336, acording to Live Nation, who promoted the show. On Sunday, with Pearl Jam on top of the bill, 39,146 people showed up.

That makes for a total of 80,482. The fest was mainly in the business of selling two days passes, but single day tickets were available. For two days, that puts it at 80.48% of capacity, a number that local Live Nation head Geoff Gordon says was expected in the first year of the fest, which he says lost money this year. No word yet on the million dollar question of what Made In America cost the city.

One other statistic, put in context: In two days, there was one arrest at Made In America, the hip-hop headlined festival everyone was afraid of. By contrast, 191 people were arrested at the Miranda Lambert headlined WXTU-FM country concert at the 25,000 capacity Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden in June.
