Made in America's all-star lineup has been officially revealed. This year, the Philadelphia-based music festival will get to enjoy the music of Nicki Minaj and Post Malone.

The Made In America 2018 Lineup

Last year, Jay-Z and J. Cole dominated the event but this year, a brand new pool of talents will grace the stage. Aside from Minaj and Malone who are two of the hottest hip-hop artists right now, major names in the music industry are heading to Benjamin Franklin Parkway venue to perform live.

On Monday, June 4, organizers announced that the festival has invited hip-hop and EDM stars such as Diplo, Zedd, Miguel, 6lack, and Fat Joe.

Janelle Monáe, who recently released her new album Dirty Computer, will also grace the event. She is expected to perform newer hits such as "PYNK" and "Make Me Feel."

Alessa Cara, who won her first Grammy for Best New Artist this year, will also perform a set at Made in America.

Meek Mill, Minaj's rapper ex-boyfriend, will hold his first live concert in his hometown since his release from prison in April. The 31-year-old previously appeared as a surprise guest performer at Rolling Loud. This weekend, Mill will also be headlining the Hot 97's Summer Jam.

For Minaj, the timing of her headlining set at Made in America comes just a few weeks after she released her newest album, Queen. The rapper has already dropped a string of new singles including "Barbie Tingz" and "Chun-Li." She also recently collaborated with friend Ariana Grande in the song "The Light Is Coming."

Other notable performers include Ty Dolla $ign, Rich The Kid, Sabrina Claudio, Lil B, Jay Park, Cashmere Cat, and a lot more.

The Tidal pre-sale begins on Tuesday, May 5. Meanwhile, general sale passes will be available by Friday, May 8, on Made in America website and Ticketmaster.

Made in America 2018 will take place on Sept. 1 and 2.
