Pearl Jam - Drake And Pearl Jam Among Jay-z's Made In America Performers

Rockers Pearl Jam and hip-hop star Drake are among the performers set to headline Jay Z's recently announced Made in America Festival this September (12).
The 99 Problems hitmaker announced the first annual Budweiser Made in America event in partnership with Philadelphia, Pennsylvania mayor Michael A. Nutter last week (14May12), but aside from the new dad himself, details were kept under wraps about which artists would be joining the icon on stage over America's Labor Day weekend (01-02Sep12).
But on Friday (18May12) a screen grab of the supposed listing went viral as the prematurely-posted link appeared to reveal a large portion of the two-day line-up.
Included on the roster were Pearl Jam and Drake, and also joining the pair were Skrillex, Afrojack, D'Angelo, Odd Future, Miike Snow and singer Santigold, who hails from the city.
The members of Pearl Jam have since confirmed their involvement in a tweet, writing, "Pearl Jam will officially be joining the lineup for Jay Z's first ever #MadeInAmerica festival."
The official and complete roster, curated by Jay Z, is expected to be unveiled on Monday evening (21May12).
The festival, produced by Live Nation, will take place at Fairmount Park and a portion of the ticket sales will be donated to charity organisation United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey.
