Jay-Z recently revealed plans for his own music festival, dubbed the Budweiser Made In America Music Festival, which will take place in Philadelphia in September and feature twenty hand-picked acts, as well as the man himself.

Now Jay has told Rolling Stone that he wants the President to join in. He said “I’m gonna give him a call and I’m gonna try to get him to perform – do a little rendition of Al Green – but I doubt it. I think that opens up the political season. He’ll be so far into helping the world that he probably won’t have time, but I’m absolutely going to ask him.”

Might be a good PR exercise for the President leading up to the November US election.

Jay-Z is the only confirmed act so far, but he’s specified that the line-up won’t just be rap and hip-hop, but will also include rock, R&B, Latin and dance.

And the R&B and dance could come, in part, from his lovely wife Beyonce. He suggested that she might just have a “little gap in her schedule” to make it happen.

The Budweiser Made In America music fest will take place at Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park on September 1 and 2.
