Jay Z has released the trailer for his “Made in America” documentary, just a day ahead of the festival’s second run. Airing October 11 on Showtime, “Made in America” is shot by famed director Ron Howard and chronicles Jay creating the Made in America music festival last year in Philly.

Many of the acts give their commentary about the importance of the festival including Rita Ora and Skrillex.

The doc will premiere next month at the Toronto International Film Festival shares Variety.
