QOTSA and Nine Inch Nails to Headline Jay-Z Festival
Queens of the Stone Age and Nine Inch Nails have been selected by rapper Jay-Z to headline the Budweiser Made In America music festival in Philadelphia in August. It's not the first time that rock bands have taken part in Jay-Z's new festival, as Pearl Jam were headliners at its debut event last year. Other bands to take part this year include the Gaslight Anthem, Phoenix and Imagine Dragons. So why are rock bands appearing at an event curated by perhaps the biggest rapper in the world? Budweiser's Vice President of marketing Paul Chibe explains (via NME): "The point of having that diversity in our music lineup [is because] we're trying to expose the people to different types of music." He continued: "Much like last year, where if you never saw Pearl Jam but you're a Jay-Z fan, we want fans of Beyonce or Calvin Harris of Wiz Khalifa to have the opportunity to see Nine Inch Nails or stuff they might have [not] seen for a while like Public Enemy. That eclectic mix creates an opportunity for us to really show the impact of music culture." Do you like festivals that showcase music from different genres, or is it more fun to immerse yourself in a straight-up rock festival? Let us know what you think in the comments.
