My friends and I had a blast in New Orleans at this year’s record-setting Festival, which attracted more than 510,000 attendees and achieved a first-ever sell-out of its 3-night concert series(Glad we purchased our tickets early)!
“The ESSENCE Festival represents culture, community and a powerful convening around one of the largest curated content experiences in the world,” commented ESSENCE Communications President Michelle Ebanks. “As we look forward to the Festival’s 25th anniversary celebration in 2019, we will continue to offer curated platforms of entertainment, empowerment, entrepreneurship, activism and more that will both engage and inspire Black women globally.”
The reach and scale of the annual ESSENCE Festival is unmatched, with more than 100 performing artists across the Louisiana Superdome and the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. In addition, more than 200 influencers, leaders, creators and celebrities participated in the Festival’s daytime experience – rebranded as ‘Conference & Expos’ with programming across eight tracks spanning Beauty & Style to Business & Entrepreneurship.
