Los Angeles, California -- When Jay Z and Budweiser's Made in America Festival announced the lineup for its bicoastal 2014 editions, the general consensus was that Philadelphia won the East Coast West Coast battle. The Philly lineup featured headliners Kanye West, The National, Kings of Leon, and Tiesto, while LA had ever-so-slightly-smaller names like Imagine Dragons, John Mayer, and Juanes.
Today's announcement slightly shifts the disparity back in Los Angeles' favor with the addition of Kanye West and Iggy Azalea to the LA MIA lineup. We don't know what spurred the additions (poor ticket sales perhaps?), but we do know LA is looking much more enticing for a Labor Day Weekend trip.
Made In America Philadelphia and Los Angeles occur simultaneously August 30-31 over Labor Day Weekend, tickets to both editions are still available. The Daily lineups for both were also announced today, and you can peep those below.
