Made In America Fest?

Made in America Music Festival is anything but "American"

Beyonce, Nine Inch Nails, Deadmau5 and Phoenix are set to headline the second edition of Budweiser's Made in America Festival in Philadelphia.

The lineup for the fest, to be held on the city's Benjamin Franklin Parkway from August 31st to September 1st, also includes Queens of the Stone Age, Calvin Harris, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, A$AP Rocky, Wiz Khalifa, the Gaslight Anthem, Public Enemy and Solange.

The festival is being organized by rapper Jay-Z, who will not be performing.

Not to get all technical, but if this is "Made in America" why is Deadmau5 performing?  He's from Canada.  Pheonix is from France.  And while we're on the subject, Calvin Harris is from Scottland.

This festival is about as "Made in America" as Sony, BMW & Mitsubishi.  Hell, even Taco Bell is more American than this festival.

Of course lets not forget headliner Beyonce and concert  organizer Jay-Z, palling around in Cuba this past week.  They're so American that they vacation in Communist Cuba?  Makes sense.

They claimed the trip was "Educational".
