Essence Music Festival History

The Essence Music Festival is also known as "the party with a purpose", and has been an annual festival in New Orleans.  Essence Music Festival started in 1995 as a one time event to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the magaize Essence, which was aimed primarily toward African American women.  Since then, Essence Music Festival is the largest event celebrating African American culture and music in the United States.  Locally, it's referred to as the Essence Fest and has been held in New Orleans since 1994, besides 2006, when it was held in Houston due to the impact on New Orleans from Hurricane katrina.  Essence Festival was also held in Durban, South Africa in 2016.  

Essence Festival features artist performing simultaneously, with some on the main stage and others performing on one of four standing room only superlounge stages.  With some of the biggest names in music, acting, and comedy performing, R&B and hip hop fans across the country drool over the thought of attending the Essence Music Festival themselves.  Fans make an entire trip out of the event, seeing as Essence is a three day experience and is always one of the most talked about music events in the country every year.  Legendary performers, today's hottest acts, and the biggest names of tomorrow all come together every year at the Essence Music Festival, and that makes Essence tickets in very high demand.
