West Coast rap fans won’t need to fly to Philadelphia to see the Made in America festival this year because Jay Z plans to bring the show to them during Labor Day weekend.

The two-day festival will take place in California on Aug. 30 and Aug. 31 at the Los Angeles Grand Park and simultaneously in Ben Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia. Hov announced the Cali extension of the festival on the steps of City Hall in Los Angeles on Wednesday (April 16), as he stood next to L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti, Budweiser VP Brian Perkins and Live Nation President and CEO Michael Rapino.

“Two years ago this was a dream to put a festival together, to have all types of music, different types of genres ’cause I believe that genres separate us,” Jay Z said.

You can get early bird tickets now. However, you should be warned that each fest’s ticket prices are different — Philly tickets range from $100 – $150 while L.A. will set you back $125 – $185.

The lineup will be announced at a later date. Jay Z will curate the blockbuster roster of talent, which will include more than 60 artists featured on three stages in each city. The famed Brooklyn, N.Y., rapper first partnered with Budweiser for the two-day music festival in 2012.
