The 2023 Made in AmericaFestival has officially been canceled. The festival released a statement at 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, August 8th stating that the entire 2023 festival would no longer happen, and that ticket holders would be refunded.

Their statement reads “Due to severe circumstances outside of our production control, the 2023 Made In America festival will no longer be taking place. This decision has been difficult and has not been made lightly nor without immense deliberation.” Later, they express that the festival will return in 2024.

The 2023 lineup was set to feature headlining performances from SZA and Lizzo, supported by appearances from Miguel, Ice Spice, Tems, Metro Boomin, Lil Yachty, and more. On August 1st, Lizzo was accused of sexual harassment along with creating a hostile work environment by three former dancers. On Aug. 3rd, the singer responded to these accusations, claiming them as “false,” “outrageous,” and “sensationalized stories” in an Instagram post.

Upon announcement of the festival’s cancellation via Instagram, Made In America has faced many comments reiterating fans’ disapproval of their initial lineup. User tonino_marzano said “Lineup was a joke. Take it back to 2012/2013 lineup. THAT was a festival.” “i knew this would happen since the lineup is the worst it’s ever been,” stated user nicole.gallagherxx. The festival has since deleted all Instagram posts revolving around the 2023 lineup and event.

“…it is our commitment to always deliver a top-tier festival experience” Made In America said in their cancellation statement. The festival was scheduled to take place on September 2nd and 3rd on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia, PA. The festival was founded in 2012 by Jay-Z.
