PHILADELPHIA (AP) — In a story Sept. 3 about fans rushing the stage during the Made in America festival in Philadelphia, The Associated Press erroneously reported that more than 30 artists are performing at the two-day festival. A spokeswoman for Made in America organizer Jay Z says 70 artists are performing.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Police: 1,000 rush stage at outdoor concert in Philadelphia

Philadelphia police says they’ve had to clear a concert stage after more than 1,000 people rushed it during a Labor Day weekend show

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Police in Philadelphia say they’ve had to clear an outdoor concert stage after more than 1,000 people rushed it during a Labor Day weekend show.

Fans at the Budweiser Made in America Festival tell Philly.com that hip hop artist Jay Electronica was performing Saturday evening when Philadelphia rapper Lil Uzi Vert walked by the stage, attracting attention. They say Electronica then began calling for people to join him on stage.

The performance was temporarily interrupted when security guards could not make the crowd leave and police arrived. There were no arrests.

Seventy artists are performing on multiple stages during the two-day festival, which continues Sunday. The Made in America festival, a Labor Day tradition in Philadelphia, is being curated by Jay Z.
