The second annual Budweiser Made in America Festival kicks off on Saturday in Philadelphia, boasting a lineup that includes headliners Beyonce, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Imagine Dragons and more.

If you’re not able to make it to Philly for the event, you can join the audience online: YouTube will be webcasting select performances from the festival all weekend long -- check out YouTube’s Made in America Festival channel for updates.

Speaking to LehighValleyLive.com, Imagine Dragons bass player Ben McKee says he's open to collaborating with fellow headliner Beyonce on Saturday.  "If she reaches out to us, we will not say no," he laughs. "Maybe we'd just get up there and dance."

Other acts who'll take the stage during the two-day festival include Calvin Harris, Emeli Sande, Wiz Khalifa, Miguel, Walk the Moon and legendary rap group Public Enemy, among others.

In other Made in America Festival news, director Ron Howard’s documentary about the inaugural edition of the event will see its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, which takes place September 5-15.

The film will be shown on September 7 and is expected to feature an interview Jay-Z, the festival's founder, as well as live performances from Skrillex, Janelle Monáe, Run-DMC, Pearl Jam and others. The documentary will also include interviews with audience members about the festival and what it means to the Philadelphia community.  It'll air on Showtime on October 11.
