LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) —  Mayor Eric Garcetti and Jay Z announced plans for the rapper’s “Made In America” music festival in downtown L.A. Wednesday morning.

The two-day festival, scheduled for August 30 and 31 in Grand Park, raised concerns from councilman Jose Huizar, who complained earlier this month about possible ten-day street closures in his district.

However, Garcetti — along with County Supervisor Gloria Molina, organizer Jay Z and executives from event-sponsor Budweiser — discussed details of the festival on City Hall’s steps at a morning news conference.

The festival’s line-up, as well as information on ticket sales, have not been announced.
