The day-by-day schedule and set times for this weekend's Budweiser Made in America festival have been announced.
A few salient points: The fest is scheduled to end at midnight on Saturday, when Beyonce headlines, and 11 on Sunday, when Nine Inch Nails tops the bill.
This year the DJ-electronic music area known as the "Freedom Stage," is actually a stage, not a tent, as it was last year. Will that cause sound bleed when, say, Wolfgang Gartner and Phoenix are on at the same time on Saturday? We'll see.
10 new bands have been announced on the MIA "Skate Park Stage," located adjacent to the new Paine's Park along the Schuykill Banks. Clevelanders Cloud Nothings go on last on Saturday, and Nashville cats Pujols top that slate on Sunday. The indie-rock quotient at the fest has been upped considerably, at the last minute.
