Made in America Fest 2015: The Weeknd, Future, Big Sean, J. Cole & More Takeover Day 2!
After Beyonce basically blew the roof of Philly Saturday night, we were sure Made in America had no where to go but up–and we were right. With performances from Fabolous, Jidenna, Banks, Remy Banks, Santigold, J. Cole, Big Sean, Future, Lolawolf, Action Bronson, Grits and Biscuits, a slew of other performers and eventually The Weeknd, the final day of Made in America was ‘lit’.
On the Liberty Stage, Fabolous brought Brooklyn to Philly in true Fabolous style, rocking the crowd with his hits! Although we didn’t get a surprise guest appearance from Lil’ Mo, Fab was introduced by Kevin Hart. Well, he was sort of introduced by Kevin Hart in a video skit instructing him on how to please Philly crowds!
Over at the Tidal Stage, the ‘classic man’ Jidenna had the crowd moving! He rocked the stage, ending his set with his hit single, “Classic Man”. Not before calling 8 young ladies on stage for a ‘yoga booty’ challenge.
Although their set started a little late, Lolawolf, fronted by Zoe Kravitz, commanded the stage in true Kravitz form.
Roc Nation artist Santigold rocked the Liberty Stage.
And then, FUTURE. It seemed that Future was the man of the day. Every where we went, the talk was ‘Future’ and rightfully so. The crowd, who had been waiting more than an hour and a half before Future his the stage, was ready to turn up and they did just that. The rapper, whose latest album “DS2” went #1, performed hit after hit and the crowd went more wild after each performance.
Back on the main stage, Big Sean kept the party going performing his hits including, “Blessed” and “IDFWU”.
J. Cole hit the Rocky Stage performing his hits and the crowd went nuts!
Canadian singer The Weeknd, who has been taking over the charts, headlined yesterday evening’s show. Complete with lights, camera, action and fireworks (yes, real live fireworks), The Weeknd performed all of his hits including “Earned It,” “Can’t Feel My Face,” and even performed his cover of Beyonce’s “Drunk in Love” and his verse on Ariana Grande’s single “Love Me Harder”. He closed his set thanking Jay-Z and “the beautiful Beyonce” for the opportunity to perform!
Made in America 2015 it’s been real! Until next year!
