Nine Inch Nails + Queens of the Stone Age to Play Jay-Z’s Eclectic 2013 Made in America Festival
Jay-Z‘s Made in America festival is returning to Philadelphia for its second year, and just like last year’s event, it’s proving to be quite the eclectic lineup. Holding down the fort for hard rock will be Nine Inch Nails and Queens of the Stone Age.
Trent Reznor reactivated Nine Inch Nails earlier this year with a reconfigured lineup, and although there’s not any new music en route as of yet, the frontman did reveal that the group had determined new ways to reconstruct some of the music in the catalog that they have for the live performances.
Queens of the Stone Age, meanwhile, just released the single ‘My God Is the Sun‘ from their upcoming ‘…Like Clockwork’ album. The current lineup of Josh Homme, Troy Van Leeuwen, Michael Shuman, Dean Fertita and new drummer Jon Theodore recently returned to the stage at Lollapalooza in Brazil.
The Made in America Festival will take place over Labor Day weekend (Aug. 31 – Sept. 2) at Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The festival host, Jay-Z, will not be performing. However, the rest of the bill features Beyonce, Imagine Dragons, Gaslight Anthem, Solange, Phoenix, Deadmau5, Wiz Khalifa, the Black Hippy crew, Empire of the Sun, Haim, ASAP Rocky, Public Enemy, Miguel, AlunaGeorge, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Calvin Harris, Fitz and the Tantrums, Walk the Moon, Emile Sande, Rudimental, Nero, 2 Chainz, Wolfgang Gartner and more.
