The Budweiser Made in America Festival is doubling up on the power of Yeezus this year. Kanye West is now headlining both shows in Los Angeles and Philadelphia over Labor Day Weekend, Hip Hop Wired reports.

Yeezy kicks off his performance duties at the Philly festival August 30, featuring the likes of Pharell Williams, J. Cole, Danny Brown and Kings of Leon, before he flies over for the West Coast show the next day. Iggy Azalea has also been added to the lineup in the City of Angels, joining DJ Mustard, Kendrick Lamar, Chance the Rapper, John Mayer and more than two dozen other acts on the Cali bill. 

The annual festival, which is a partnership between Budweiser, Jay Z and music entrepreneur Steve Stoute, launched two years ago. Hov headlined the first festival, followed by Beyoncé in 2013. This year, Jay announced that Made in America would be held simultaneously in Los Angeles and Philadelphia.

Like the festival, Made in America the documentary is also expanding. The film, which aired on Showtime last year, heads to theaters July 22.
