EDM culture's deadmau5 performing at the 2013 Made In America Festival In Philadelphia
The LA Times is reporting that concert promoter Live Nation is in talks with Los Angeles city officials to bring Jay Z's Made In America festival to So-Cal this year. The two day festival, expected to run on the same weekend as the one in it's home city of Philadelphia, is expected to take place at Grand Park and surrounding areas near City Hall.
The Times writes:
A spokesman from the offices of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti would say only that "we are in discussions about a possible event," but a report on the website for public radio station KPCC-FM (89.3) stated that Councilman Jose Huizar had requested city services to not issue any permits for Made in America until it could be properly vetted.
There are rumors that the details of the LA edition of the festival could be announced this month, perhaps concurrently with the Philadelphia announcement. Last year, the festival took place August 31st and September 1st. It included EDM culture headliners deadmau5 and Calvin Harris, along with more mainstream acts like Nine Inch Nails and Beyonce.
