PHILADELPHIA —

Jay-Z says his "Made in America" festival is coming back to Philadelphia.

The rapper posted a teaser video on his "Life and Times" website Monday that showed footage from last year. It says this year's festival will again take place on Labor Day weekend - Aug. 31 and Sept. 1.

Jay-Z says the lineup will be revealed on Spotify on Wednesday.

Last year's festival was the first of its kind for the entrepreneurial Jay-Z, who is married to superstar Beyonce and owns a music management company, fashion line, nightclub and restaurant. He also has a stake in the Brooklyn Nets.

Thousands of music fans shifted among three stages in downtown Philadelphia to watch acts including Skrillex, D'Angelo, Passion Pit, Janelle Monae, Calvin Harris, Pearl Jam, Run DMC, Odd Future and Drake.
