And why? "The Essence" is more than a festival, it's a celebration of beauty and diversity and many of the seminars are very empowering for men and women alike! It's a great opportunity to hear "professionals" speak about the world as they view it...just as it is.

I mean...where else can you find so many A-List music headliners at one venue? You would never find this stellar lineup with any traveling concert tour...the Essence Music Festival is IT! In fact, it's the largest annual gathering of musical talent in the world! The festival offers performances for every musical appetite. Each night on five stages in the Louisiana Superdome, you'll find classic rhythm & blues, hip-hop soul, jazz, and reggae performances from over 50 acts. And there's more: the exclusive Superlounges offer an intimate setting for both up-and-coming entertainers and long-time faves. It won't be the heat that heats up the Essence,'s the musical artists, young and old! And it never stops for three days and nights...
