Made in America Cancels 2023 Festival With Headliners Lizzo and SZA, Citing “Severe Circumstances”

1 min read

Made in America has been canceled for 2023, as the Philadelphia festival announced today (August 8), citing “severe circumstances outside of production control.” The statement continued, “This decision has been difficult and has not been made lightly nor without immense deliberation.” Ticket holders will be refunded for their purchases. Read the rest of the festival’s statement below.

SZA and Lizzo were all set to headline this year’s festival, which was slated to take place September 2-3. Mase and Cam’ron were also supposed to perform a collaborative set, in addition to appearances from Ice Spice, Miguel, Metro Boomin, and several more more. Lizzo has been embroiled in a lawsuit from former dancers alleging sexual harrassment and a hostile work environment in recent weeks, and has denied all accusations of wrongdoing. Pitchfork has contacted represented representatives for Made in America and Lizzo for comment.
