What artists are you looking forward to seeing perform?
Eli: Lil Uzi Vert. I’m not going to lie, that’s the only reason I came.
Lil Uzi Vert is from Philadelphia as well, so how does it feel to see artists from your city be in the spotlight?
Eli: It’s fire because it shows that you can make it out of the city and really do big things. Lil Uzi Vert and Meek Mill are two of the biggest examples, and they’re doing all types of s—.

Artists coming out here and showing love because we don’t really have a lot of big names out here, and this is the only festival we have that’s big. It’s dope for a weekend that we can come out before the summer is over and see big a– artists and have a good time.
David: I spent $400 on the ticket, so I really don’t know what to expect. This is my first Made in America Festival.
