Event description





JUNE 30 - JULY 3 2017

The ESSENCE MUSIC FESTIVAL, known as "the party with a purpose", is an annual music festival which started in 1994. It is the largest event celebrating African-American culture and music in the United States. Essence, the preeminent lifestyle magazine for African American women, made the decision to put their name on a festival of contemporary black music and culture, held annually at the Louisiana Superdome over the July 4 weekend except in 2006 due to Hurricane Katrina. Over the years, ESSENCE Festival has been the highlight of New Orleans summer music scene, and one of the city’s top five annual drawing cards. It features artists simultaneously performing on a main stage as well as four standing-room only superlounge stages. Many of the top-sellers in the African American – and crossover – music scene have been drawn to the fest like moths to a flame. It has become a “must” for stars making the rounds on the touring circuit. Entertainers who have made the scene here include Beyoncé, Prince, Destiny’s Child, Mary J. Blige, Erykah Badu, Jeffrey Osborne, the Dells, Peabo Bryson, Lionel Richie, Cedric the Entertainer and many more. Frankie Beverly and Maze can be counted on every year to close out the final night of this three-day event at the Superdome.
