Jay-Z‘s annual Made in America festival, scheduled to take place in Philadelphia over Labor Day weekend, has been canceled for a second straight year.

The festival organizers posted the cancellation news on social media and their official website without assigning any specific reason.

“As purveyors of change, the Made In America executive production team is reimagining a live music experience that affirms our love and dedication to music and the work we do. We promise an exciting return to the festival,” the statement read, without providing a timeline for the festival’s return.

“Since its inception, this groundbreaking festival has celebrated music and community – from creating a space for fans to connect, to uplifting local small businesses and shining a light on important causes. It has strived for accessibility, eliminating barriers through affordable tickets and location,” the statement said.

Last year, Made In America canceled the festival in August, a month before the scheduled date, saying the festival would not happen “due to severe circumstances outside of production control.” Lizzo and SZA were set to headline the festival at Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

The festival, which began in 2012 had been held every year up until 2023, except in 2020 as the pandemic forced the organizers to cancel the event.
