9 Must-See Acts at Made in America 2015

#1De La Soul: Saturday, 4:45 - 5:45PM, Rocky Stage

The fourth annual Made in America Festival is returning to Philadelphia on Saturday, September 5 and Sunday, September 6. BeyoncéDeath Cab for CutieJ. Cole and more—these are the nine artists nobody should miss. (Peruse the full lineup and schedule here, and don't forget to read our survival guide.)

Made in America always specifically giving love to veteran hip hop artists is one of the event's most beautiful facets. 2015’s lineup is graced by De La Soul, who first got big riding the daisy-age, late '80s hip hop bloom, are still out here making great, conscious rhymes. A Kickstarter-funded album called And the Anonymous Nobody, featuring guest spots by everyone from David Byrne to 2 Chainz and Little Dragon, got underway in April. Just a couple days ago, they confirmed that UsherEstelle, and Snoop Dogg will also be on the record. So, clearly the sky is the limit for the possibilities of the trio’s MiA set. —Jessica Letkemann
