It is about that time of the year where all eyes will be focused on the New Orleans Superdome.

The Essence Festival will roll into The Big Easy on July 1st, and run through July 3rd.

For 22 years the “party with a purpose” has been enlightening and entertaining audiences with its inspirational speakers and top-notch talent, making this one of the top events of the year!

On the Empowerment stage, you will experience speakers that will include Tyra Banks, Tony-winning actress Patina Miller, best-selling author Terry McMillan, ballet star Misty Copeland and life coach Iyanla Vanzant.

“The ESSENCE Empowerment Experience Stage remains the heartbeat of Festival weekend with its diverse and impactful programming aimed at enlightening and inspiring our community,” said ESSENCE Editor-in-Chief Vanessa K. De Luca.  “Not only will our programming emphasize topics such as love and relationships, personal finance and entrepreneurship, but we will also take a deeper look into our community’s most pressing political concerns to prepare ourselves for the upcoming presidential election.”

The music will also be on point, as this year’s headliners will be Mariah Carey, Kendrick Lamar and Maxwell.  If that is not enough, the Essence Festival will also feature Babyface, New Edition, Faith Evans, Lalah Hathaway, Tyreese, Andra Day, Charlie Wilson, and more!

Essence Festival 2016 tickets are on sale now. Single day passes start at $55.   3-day passes, which will allow you to make the most of the weekend, start at $250.   Tickets can be purchased at Ticketmaster.

Airfare and hotel accommodations are still available, but they are expecting a sell out.
