Double the Kanye, double the fun right?

Made in America, the Jay Z curated music festival just got thismuch better. Billboard is reporting that Kanye West is set to headline both the Philadelphia and Los Angeles shows on Aug. 30 and 31, respectively. Remember: this is a two-day music festival that's supposed to happen on both coasts. At the same time. Think about that for a second.

The 37-year-old rapper was originally scheduled to play just in Philly, along with fellow acts Kings of Leon, The National, Pharrell and Chromeo.

Also joining the Los Angeles lineup is Iggy Azalea, who will hit the stage on Aug. 30. John Mayer, Imagine Dragons, Weezer and Rise Against are some other big names set to play the west coast edition.

As Billboard points out, many other acts may follow Kanye’s double-duty footsteps; the Philly lineup still has a handful of empty slots in its lineup.

Made in America was started by Jay Z and his business associate Steve Stoute in 2012. This year, the festival announced an expansion to Los Angeles.

Kanye recently played at the 2014 Wireless Music Festival in London. He got booed.
