Finally after 2 years, an in-person Essence Festival celebration returns this July. From July 1st-July 5th millions will go to New Orleans, and celebrate the culture with music, food, parties and just a good time. Essence recently announced some heavy-hitters they've bought on to make the celebration one for the ages.
Legends such as Janet Jackson, The Isley Brothers and New Edition have been announced as headliners. Other beloved acts such as Jasmine Sullivan, Nicki Minjai, Summer Walker, and The Roots have been announced as well. Kevin Hart is even joining in the fun hosting a comedy show.
If you have ever been to Essence or it's been a bucket list item, I'd recommend making plans to attend this years celebration. Tickets are on-sale now, for more information visit https://www.nola.com/entertainment_life/festivals/article_3ced8af2-9b2e-11ec-a966-a3d4ade1fe33.html
