Essence Music Festival

July 4 – 8, 2013

If you have never experienced the Essence Musical Festival in New Orleans, you are in for a treat. The Essence Music Festival, is known as “the party with a purpose,” is the nation’s largest annual African-American event and gathering of musical talent in the world. This multigenerational Festival offers free Empowerment Seminars during the day and exciting performances at night at the New Orleans Superdome where Festival goers can dance and sing along with the biggest names in entertainment—rhythm and blues, classic soul, hip-hop, neo-soul, and jazz.  When you get to New Orleans, you do not have to find the music, the music will find you. Walk down Bourbon Street through the heart of the French Quarter or along any number of the side, streets leading off and you will hear music coming through the doors of dozens of clubs. 

(The lineup of performers will be announced soon, along with ticket information)
