The Essence Festival will take place in New Orleans July 3-6, and this year’s festival is expected to be bigger than ever.
The Festival will celebrate its 20th anniversary on the heels of the largest and most successful Festival ever in 2013 — which hosted 543,000 attendees and brought in $231 million in revenue for the city of New Orleans and state of Louisiana.
According to Essence, this year’s festival is “set to surpass last year’s record-breaking attendance.”
The 4-day event features entertainment, empowerment, and cultural experiences during the day and the world’s best performers each night.
