Jay-Z is curating the Budweiser-sponsored fest as well as headlining himself. Other artists on the bill so far include indie acts Passion Pit -- a band who Jay-Z gave a shout-out to at his 2010 Coachella gig -- and Dirty Projectors.

The festival may also play host to a long-awaited R&B comeback. There are varying reports as to whether D'Angelo will perform at the event, but Billboard understands that he is confirmed to appear.

Tickets for Made in America go on sale on Wednesday at 10 a.m. EDT. The festival is expected to include 28 acts overall.

"You know me -- I love the show of it," Jay-Z told Billboard last week. "I will reveal them in time and we'll do some silly things that no one understands and they'll figure it out."
