LA's Made in America concert set to rock downtown

By

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Downtown Los Angeles is ready for its inaugural outdoor music festival.

The Budweiser Made in America concert starts at 2 p.m. Saturday in Grand Park. Rap mogul Jay Z launched the two-day festival in Philadelphia in 2012 and announced its West Coast expansion this spring.

More than 40,000 people are expected to attend the multi-stage show near Los Angeles City Hall, marking the first time Grand Park is being used for a large, ticketed event. Police are expected in force and several streets in the area are closed to accommodate the concert.

Dozens of acts are set to perform, including Kanye West, who will headline in Philadelphia on Saturday and Los Angeles on Sunday. Other scheduled performers include Cypress Hill, Iggy Azalea, Weezer, Kendrick Lamar, John Mayer and Imagine Dragons.
