Budweiser Made in America Festival returned this weekend for its fifth installment, with a hefty lineup including J. Cole and curator Jay-Z.

Held once again at Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the first day of the Live Nation-produced event featured a number of big performances, such as the aforementioned J. Cole as well as Migos, Vic Mensa, Cardi B, Sampha, Francis and the Lights, Lizzo and Marian Hill.

While the lineup was on point, the weather wasn't. Rain plagued the festival grounds for much of the day on Saturday, adding an extra element to many of the performances, as evidenced through some of the photos captured.
