The Premiere Music & Cultural Festival - Summer New Orleans. The Essence Music Festival is the largest stateside gathering of African-Americans in the United States. It's where we all come together to celebrate entertainment and culture like no other festival in the world. Each year, over 400,000 people joined us in New Orleans, where we've been since 1993.
We love music festivals as much as you do. Music Festival Junkies is dedicated to covering the scene, the experience, and the music with news, lineups, reviews, and commentary. See you this summer somewhere down the gypsy road.
