On Sunday, September 1st the morning seemed even hotter than the day before leading for another full day of music. Starting the festival on the Main Stage were LA indie pop group Fitz and The Tantrums playing to a dedicated crowd. Next up were Californian pop-punkers Wavves on the Liberty Stage playing a last minute set. Nathan Williams of Wavves played with great vocals and stellar guitar work. Wavves will be back in Philadelphia on October 2nd at the First Unitarian Church. Then the Gaslight Anthem took the Rocky Main Stage for even more classic rock and roll. Robert Delong made his way to the Freedom Stage with an amazing performance, ending his set with a variation of The Beatles’ “A Day In The Life.”

Next on the Skate Park stage were Nashville, Tennessee rockers Diarrhea Planet. With 6 members of the band, a total of four electric guitars the wall of sound was incomparable and the energy they emitted was highly impressive. Slowly over the past year or so, Diarrhea Planet has become a favorite for the punk rock kids of Philadelphia, and with reason. They played with great power of epic proportions, ending the set standing on top of the monitors soloing while other members were shredding guitar in the crowd. Next on the Skate Park stage were other locals The Front Bottoms. Playing their pop rock music with songs about being a desolate teenager had the crowd singing along. It was great to see a local artist on stage at such a well put together festival.

Queens of the Stone Age made their way on the Rocky Main Stage around 7:30pm for some more loud rock and roll. Playing with attitude and vicious guitars, lead singer Josh Homme seemed to be having a good time. Prompting the crowd to "party" Queens of The Stone Age made for a fantastic addition for the festival, providing class act rock music for all the loud rock fans at the festival. Playing new songs off their latest record, Queens of the Stone Age proved to be on point. Electronic artist Calvin Harris then took the Liberty Stage with an extreme light show and intense music. The crowd were enthralled song after song during Calvin Harris' set. With so many people into electronic music at the festival, Calvin Harris was a must see. Playing a great mix between dance and dub step, his performance made for a great experience.

Then as Made In America's grand finale, Trent Reznor's Nine Inch Nails played the Rocky Main Stage. Old and new fans alike made their way in front of the Art Museum to see the iconic and legendary performer and he did not disappoint. Playing classic favorites as well as new songs from his upcoming record Hestitation Marks Trent Reznor proved his status as one of the kings of industrial and electronic music. It only goes to show with time comes masterful skill and technique.

All in all, between the two days of Budweiser’s Made In America Festival held in Philadelphia went swimmingly. Tens of thousands of people enjoyed great music on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and had a great time. With so much music to see and things to do, the event is top notch. While it may not compare to bigger festivals such as Lollapalooza or Bonnaroo just yet, there is still room for growing time and it does look promising. With the success of the festival, hats off to Jay-Z for making it possible. Extend a most honored welcome to the city of Philadelphia to Jay-Z for sharing such great talent, music and most of all for showing how to really support artists as well as the public audience. Made In America had a successful sophomore run, and there are no signs of slowing down.
