There’s no doubt that this will be a once-in-a-lifetime event that will be lit!
A Little Background On The Essence Festival
Also called “the party with a purpose”, ESSENCE Festival is an annual music festival that started in 1995 as a way to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Essence, which is a magazine for African-American women that covers everything from fashion to lifestyle and beauty. The ESSENCE Festival has been called the largest celebration of African-American culture and music in the United States, and it’s hosted in New Orleans, Louisiana.
According to Michelle Ebanks, president of Essence Communications, “The ESSENCE Festival engages black women globally through a truly unique celebration of culture, connection to community, and access to content that inspires and empowers.”
The 2018 ESSENCE Festival brought more than 510,000 attendees, making it one of the largest gatherings in the event’s 24-year history, according to an article from NOLA. Last year, ESSENCE Fest guests were able to see incredible performances from musicians and artists, like Doug E. Fresh, Snoop Dogg, The Roots, Erykah Badu, Mary J. Blige, and Janet Jackson.
