It was the biggest music festival of the year! And thanks to Ron Howard and Showtime, we now get an all access pass into the preparations that went into the festival and the first run of the show. The documentary captures Hov as he preps his own headlining set, which included artists such as Jill Scott, Odd Future, Rita Ora, Pearl Jam, Skrillex, Run DMC, Janelle Monáe, and more. I think the cool thing about it is you get to see the show from everyone’s perspective; Jay Z’s, the festival security guards, crew members, promoters, food vendors, and even the mayor of Philadelphia, Michael Nutter.
As a bonus, the doc shows Jay Z returning to his old apartment, the now infamous 560 State Street.
