Jay Electronica was a last minute addition to the Made in America lineup, but on Saturday in Philadelphia, he made it worth it for fans eager for a spectacle.

Just a few hours before, Lil Uzi Vert had pulled in thousands of early concert goers at the Rocky Stage, conducting his set from anywhere but the stage. He coasted over railings, scaled statues and sprinted around the crowd, while fans giddily followed him. And while he avoided the stage at this own set, he gladly gallivanted around Jay Elect's stage later that afternoon.

To Jay's glee, he saw the rapper and started inviting everyone else onstage... and fans happily obliged. Soon enough, this is what his stage looked like:

Over the loudspeaker, security guards ordered people to leave the stage, but the crowd remained. It was only after a high-frequency tone blared over the speakers that the stage-crashers began to dissipate. And just as fast as Jay Electronica started, the set ended.

Police told that more than 1,000 people rushed the stage, although, from my eyes, I estimated a few hundred.
