The music hits hard as you get closer and closer.

Once inside, “It's pretty wild honestly," said Ian Pickozzi.

"It was a lot of fun, I just hung out with friends, listened to music, it was really cool, it was my third year going," he said.

Shamar and Samira agree.

"I've actually never been to Made in America, this is my first time," he said.

How would you describe it?

"So much fun," Shamar said. "Definitely do it at least once in your life."

"Definitely a lifetime experience," Samira added.

 Aaron Anderson may have come out for Meek Mill, but says he enjoyed the entire festival.

"It's fun, exciting, there's food, drinks, live music,” he said. “If I were to rate it on a scale of one to ten, a ten for sure!"

Headliners throughout the weekend include Post Malone, Kendrick Lamar and Nicki Minaj.
