A reunion of rap legends RUN-DMC, Drake, Philly's own Jill Scott and Soundgarden front-man Chris Cornell are among artists just added to the lineup of the Jay-Z curated Made in America festival taking place Labor Day Weekend on the Parkway. Drake was previously announced, then unannounced from the bill (as LiveNation wanted to sell tickets for his June Susquehanna Bank Center show) but was always expected to take part in the multi day festival which runs Sept. 1 and Sept. 2.

RUN-DMC's performance is the first for Joseph "Run" Simmons and Darryl McDaniels since the 2002 murder of their longtime DJ Jam Master Jay.

Single day tickets go on sale at noon Friday, starting at $75 through where two-day passes are also still available.
