Final Preps For 2nd 'Made In America' Music Festival In Philly

Final Preps For 2nd 'Made In America' Music Festival In Philly

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

Tens of thousands people are expected at "Made in America" this weekend for the two-day music festival in Philadelphia.

The stages are set and, in less than 24 hours, the music will begin.

About 120 thousand people expected between both days of the event.

On Friday night, crews were working on the gates and putting in place a lot of the last-minute infrastructure needed for more than 30 different groups from various genres.

The city is hoping headliners Beyonce and Nine Inch Nails, along with dozens of other acts, bring the city more than $10 million in revenue, a big shot in the arm for the local economy.

Many hotels are sold out in the city, a rarity for Labor Day weekend in Philly, and it's because of people like the ones you're about to meet coming in for some good techno music.

James Vickery and his friends came down from Michigan looking to dance in the streets at the second-annual music festival.

FOX 29's Dave Kinchen spoke with them Friday and had more details on security for the festival.

"Made in America" is also shutting down a lot of area roads. To find out how you can easily navigate the closures, click here.
