Made in America announces 2016 lineup

Rihanna, Coldplay, dozens more to play Philly in early September

Another year, another weirdly eclectic Made in America festival on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. This year we're looking at Sept. 3 and 4. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, June 22, at 10 a.m. via something called Tidal. As always, you can expect plenty of rap, rock, pop and Budweiser products. (Wait. I thought we were supposed to call it America. Would that mean this thing's called 'America Made in America'?) The lineup includes a few returning favorites, including 2 Chainz, Gary Clark Jr., Bud Light Lime, etc.

The highlights:

Rihanna (ooh could there be a Drake walk-on? hope not)

ColleGrove (aka 2 Chainz & Lil Wayne)

Coldplay (backup band at the Super Bowl half-time show)

Jamie xx (of The xx)

Chance The Rapper (a must-see)

Grimes (just here, always here)

Kacy Hill (Kanye's protegé, may need rescuing)

Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros

DJ Khaled (wait, he's not just a web hoax?)

Gary Clark Jr. (dazzling guitarist)

A$AP Ferg (one of the top two A$APs all time)

Cherry Glazerr (find them on whatever side stage they're stuck on)

Car Seat Headrest (so hot right now)
