MIA 2022


A lot of info about MIA 2022 which takes over the Ben Franklin Parkway starting this Saturday. 

Going into Jay-Z and Live Nation’s annual Labor Day Weekend MIA 2022 Fest along Benjamin Franklin Parkway on Saturday, September 3 and Sunday, September 4, there are very definite things we know and many that we can just guess at.

The Art Museum-area neighbors will be pissed off as usual. Tourists coming into town for the extended weekend in a historically-minded city and staying at hotels along the Parkway will have to contend with MIA 2022 attendees tripping balls on Molly. Bad Bunny, coming off the VMAs and the number one album in America for nine weeks, will be the key to Sunday night’s viewing pleasure (and really, the only reason to attend Made in America on September 4). 

Rumors abound that Beyonce will make her only live appearance of the year at her husband’s Philly festival. Tyler, The Creator will fit conversation about golf into his set. Local hero Jazmine Sullivan will make a quiet storming soul that will throw off the kids at first until they realize how beautiful that music is. And Philly’s Meek Mill, who just quit Hova’s RocNation for purely business reasons, will either show up and perform as he does annually. Or not.

Speaking of Jay-Z and causes, his MIA 2022 fest will again host, as it does every year, the Cause Village dedicated hub for social action, a narrow walkway that kids will run through to get to the food trucks, but in all actuality allow the likes of ACCT Philly, BEAM, Covenant House Philadelphia, HeadCount, Philadelphia Works, REFORM Alliance, Share Food Program and more a chance to make themselves visible.

Both MIA 2022 days open at noon, begins at 1 p.m. will run until approximately midnight on Saturday and 11 p.m. on Sunday, and, yes, there is a phased-daily set of road closings and restrictions to accommodate venue construction and the two-day festival that actually began, yesterday, Sunday, August 28 and remain in place until 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, September 6. Normally, I print the legend that the city sends out on the Saturday before the MIA fest detailing the daily tiered road closings and such, but I’m not going to this time. Everything is bad and crowded starting now, so don’t go near the fucking Art Museum, the Free Library, the Barnes. Nothing. If you want knowledge and culture that badly this week- stay home. Read a book. Watch PBS.
