The Made in America music festival had a special attendee Sunday: a former American president.

Bill Clinton attended the second day of the annual concert on Philadelphia's Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Several photos of Clinton posing with fans were posted to social media, and Clinton was also spotted talking to both Beyonce and her husband, festival founder Jay Z.

Clinton was there to register people to vote in the presidential election this November and stopped by voter registration booths at the concert, according to a spokeswoman with the Hillary Clinton campaign.

The concert has become a Labor Day tradition in Philadelphia since it began in 2012. Dozens of artists performed on multiple stages during the two-day festival. Saturday night's headliner was Rihanna, and Coldplay was set to close out the festival Sunday night.
