Made in America Festival 2013: Our 100 favorite photos (slide show)

Beyoncé, Nine Inch Nails, Deadmau5 and more heated up the stages at Jay Z's annual Labor Day weekend music festival in Philadelphia.

In the midst of the negative press surrounding this year's tragedy-stricken Electric Zoo fest, it seemed as though the music media forgot that just an hour away in Philly, one of the world’s most powerful entertainers, Jay Z, was putting on a Labor Day blowout of gigantic proportions: the Made in America Festival. And that’s a shame, because despite having a lower degree of headline-grabbing drama than its NYC counterpart, Made in America hosted a slew of wonderful performances and unforgettable moments.

Over the course of Saturday and Sunday, 36 acts took the stage at Philadelphia’s historic Benjamin Franklin Parkway, playing for a crowd of tens of thousands. The festival's real coup was nabbing an extremely eclectic lineup: Bona fide rock gods (Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age) played alongside hip-hop’s best and brightest (A$AP Rocky, Kendrick Lamar) as well as such elder statesmen as Public Enemy. Live at TONY favorite Miguel kept things cool amid the sweltering humidity during his Sunday afternoon set. Showgoers always want to dance, and Deadmau5 and Wolfgang Gartner ensured that they would. Bonus: Made in America featured both Knowles sisters! Beyoncé headlined Saturday night, while li'l sis Solange did her thing Sunday. Though he didn't perform, fest honcho Jay Z was spotted frequently on the grounds, nodding in approval of his latest pop triumph.
