2019 Essence Festival 25th Year Celebration - Essence Music Festival Concerts, Party And Events Guide

The countdown to the 2019 ESSENCE Festival has officially begun and early bird tickets are here! Returning to the beloved city of New Orleans, this year we’ll be celebrating the Festival’s 25th year with four days of music, food, fashion, empowerment, sisterhood and more! The 2018 ESSENCE Fest saw over 520,000 attendees pour into NOLA, while the economic impact for the city exceeded $280 million—and this year, we’re doing it even bigger.

The ESSENCE Festival nightly concert series plays host to show-stopping performances from over 70 of music’s biggest names, hit-making trailblazers and most promising rising stars each year during the fourth of July weekend. In other words, it’s a once in a lifetime chance to see the best of your R&B and Hip Hop playlists brought to life in a setting unlike any other.

And the best part?

A single ticket for each night grants you access to both the Superdome mainstage AND all 4 Superdome Superlounges, where you can get up close and personal with some of your faves as they deliver intimate performances that you and your squad will be talking about for years to come.
