The art of music festivals has altered the way listeners enjoy the experience of their favorite artists. The live show aspect of music brings life into the artistry of each song, along with the visual components that come to the forefront with their presence and backdrop visuals that are displayed on the jumbotrons. This year, Made in America brought the elements of all these things with artists such as Jay-Z, Meek Mill, Pusha T, Jorja Smith, and more who laid it all out in Philly. Our staff photographer, Ike Abakah captured the essence of the night’s festivities with our guest photographer Jonathan Hurd.
