As in past years, musical performances are slated for the New Orleans Superdome and Empowerment Seminars will take place at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

    “To mark the ESSENCE MUSIC FESTIVAL’s 15-year anniversary, we wanted to really celebrate all the forms of music that have been central to the event’s history,” said Michelle Ebanks, president, Essence Communications Inc. “Our audience is truly loyal, and we made every effort to come up with a special line-up that’s multi-generational and spans diverse genres; it brings together heritage artists, new chart-topping acts and local favorites in New Orleans.”

    Beyond the aforementioned musical performances, the ESSENCE MUSIC FESTIVAL sets itself apart from other music events around the world by including three full days of empowerment seminars.
