Made In America Festival

Philly’s Made In America Festival Is Coming Up

Good morning. The big Made In America Festival is in just a few days’ time, and it’ll feature Philly locals Lil Uzi Vert and Tierra Whack.

Further down in today’s newsletter, we talk to two of our Inquirer colleagues about how they covered the aftermath of the police shooting in Tioga by heading back into the neighborhood to get a sense of what locals were dealing with after the tense period of uncertainty and fear. Many people who spoke with our colleagues expressed frustrations with the police as much as the suspect himself.

The week ahead

  • Philly is hosting two major events this week: Hamilton, arguably the show of the summer, and the Made In America festival, which will feature Cardi B and Travis Scott as headliners.
  • The U.S. women’s soccer team’s World Cup victory tour match against Portugal at Lincoln Financial Field happens this Thursday. It has officially broken the program’s ticket-sales record for a stand-alone friendly match.
  • Look for a story tomorrow that focuses on a free summer camp that helps children and teenagers cope with the loss of a family member or primary caregiver.
