A$AP Rocky, 2 Chainz, Public Enemy and Beyonce were among the artists to perform at the 2013 Budweiser Made In America Festival yesterday (August 31). On the Rocky (Main) stage today (September 1), Kendrick Lamar is scheduled to perform at 4:30 pm EST with ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock and Ab-Soul, and Wiz Khalifa is slated to perform at 6 pm EST. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are scheduled to appear at the Liberty Stage at 6:45 pm EST.
A$AP Rocky showed up more than 20 minutes late for his set yesterday, according to usatoday.com. Nonetheless, "the crowd of rapt teenagers roared at the conclusion of each of the four or five songs he played, proving that you can take the round with the right hit," the site said.
Public Enemy performed with a live band yesterday, a set that was highlighted by Flavor Flav playing the drums during a portion of the group's show, usatoday.com said. The rapper also addressed the crowd. "Two things that I'm against," Flavor Flav said, as per usatoday.com. "I'm against racism...and I don't like separatism. We got all these racial wars, these gang wars. They got to stop. At the end of the day, we're all God's children on Planet Earth. If you're with me and you understand me, put a middle finger in the air and say '(Expletive) racism. (Expletive) separatism.'"
2 Chainz performed his verse to the remix of Juicy J's "Bandz A Make Her Dance" during his set yesterday, which can be seen below.
Beyonce was also among the artists who performed at the concert. A video of part of her performance is below.
