Photos: Day 2 of Budweiser Made In America
Day 2 of Budweiser Made in America saw slightly bigger crowds and more arrests, but still a relatively behaved crowd with no major incidents—pretty decent for the first festival of this size at the relatively young Grand Park. Crowds dressed in Americana, danced to champagne-throwing Steve Aoki and climbed trees for better vantage points. Headliners included Kanye West, Weezer and Rise Against, plus festival organizer Jay Z (and Beyonce!) dropped by.
Cleanup continues today, and all traffic and transit situations should be mostly back to normal on Tuesday.
