Jay Z is a music lover. He works in music, so he should be. If you're thinking, "Why are these rock bands joining a festival put together by a rapper?" please re-think for a second. Jay Z again proves how eternally cool he is by booking a bunch of rock/alternative acts to his Made in America Festival. Not that he hasn't done something like this in the past, since Pearl Jam were one of the headliners for last year's festival.
Included for 2013? Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, Phoenix, Imagine Dragons, The Gaslight Anthem, Walk the Moon, and more. Good. Lord. Yes, Jay Z. Yes. And I won't even lie, I'd kill to see him and/or Beyonce too.

Meanwhile, please enjoy Pearl Jam joining Jay at last year's event. I have yet to ehar a bad version of "99 Problems." Naughty words, blah blah blah.
