The Essence Music festival was founded in 2001 to highlight the African American music scene, and has been held annually at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans ever since. In the last fifteen years, the event has grown considerably, and in some cases, Essence Festival tickets have completely sold out for individual artists.
Since its inception, the Essence Music Festival has showcased the very best in African American music. Past editions have featured artists such as Beyoncé, Nas, Usher, Janet Jackson, Kanye West, and Aretha Franklin. The festival also features sessions by public figures like Dr. Steve Perry and Rev. Al Sharpton. The 2016 edition of the festival will be no different. Get your cheap Essence Music Festival tickets today!
