The Jay-Z-led Budweiser Made in America festival has just announced the additions of Chris Cornell, the Hives, Gary Clark Jr., Run-DMC, DJ Shadow + more for the inaugural event.

Earlier this spring, Jay-Z and Pearl Jam were announced as the headliners of the Philadelphia-based festival, which is slated to take place at Fairmount Park Sept. 1 and 2.

The eclectic bill will also feature pop stars like Drake and Jill Scott, electronic favorites Skrillex and Afrojack, alternative outfits like Miike Snow, Dirty Projectors, Passion Pit and many more over the two days.

The addition of Cornell is particularly interesting as the rocker recently stated that he was open to a Temple of the Dog reunion, but because of scheduling, it would pretty much have to happen with himself on a bill with Pearl Jam. He explained, “The only times that ever happens seems to be once every ten years at a Pearl Jam show. Especially with Matt [Cameron] now being in Pearl Jam … If I walk onstage and sing with Pearl Jam, it’s Temple of the Dog. So that’s happened. And it’s always really fun.” With both Cornell and Pearl Jam scheduled for the festival, this would be one of those rare opportunities to pull it off should the artists decide to take advantage of the situation.

Single day tickets for the Budweiser Made in America go on sale this Friday at noon ET via Ticketmaster and Live Nation. Proceeds from the show will benefit the United Way branches in the greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey areas.
