The festival itself isn’t until July, but breaking news can’t be held captive for too long, especially for 6 long months. The lineup for the 2015 Essence Festival has been locked in; Kendrick Lamar & Mary J. Blige will serve as the headliners! Also performing this year, we have Erykah Badu, Common, India.Arie, SZA, & many more incredible artists.
This Independence Day Celebration is really in for a treat this year. We’ll get a taste of the old school, the new school, the rhythm & blues, the Jazz, & most importantly, the culture. Other acts gracing the stage this year include Floetry, Kelly Price, Lianne La Havas, Elle Varner, Esperanza Spalding, Raheem DeVaughn, Mali Music, Eric Roberson, Teedra Moses, Avery*Sunshine, Bilal, Goapele, Robert Glasper, Trombone Shorty, Kool Moe Dee, Doug E. Fresh, Mystikal, Slick Rick, and more.
Tickets to the festival will go on sale February 25th. The festival will be held July 2nd through the 5th at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome down in the Nola. Plan accordingly!
