I spent Labor Day weekend sweatily pressed shoulder-to-shoulder with 60,000 other people in Philadelphia at the Made in America Festival. I was there for Beyonce only.

The universe has smiled upon me and given me not one, but two chances to see Beyonce, Queen of The World, Light of My Life this summer.

In a remarkable turn of events, I’m headed to the Made In America festival, curated by none other than Mr. Beyonce himself, Jay Z, with Beyonce Giselle Knowles headlining tonight!
Starting at 2 p.m. today, you can check out the video above to view a livestream from the festival, featuring performances from what is basically my summer jams playlist: Beyonce, Haim, 2 Chainz, Solange, A$AP Rokcy, Kendrick Lamar, Phoenix, Emeli Sandé, and a whole slew of others. If I am not raptured a second time under the spell of Beyonce’s ever-changing hair and flawless everything, I’ll be tweeting over at @TheFrisky and posting pics of whatever strikes my fancy, including but not limited to festival fashion and Blue Ivy.
