2014 Essence Festival!

Ready for another Essence Festival?  The 2014 edition kicks off on July 3, and features a killer lineup, including Prince, Mary J. Blige, Charlie Wilson, Jill Scott, Ledisi, and Lionel Ritchie on the main stage and a host of talent on the SuperLounge stages.   We pity the fool that misses some of the amazing acts on the smaller stages, like The Pinettes Brass Band, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, and Doug E Fresh, so keep your eyes on Prince, but don’t forget to roam and enjoy. As a preview, check out our previous coverage of some of the acts appearing at Essence Festival 2014.  See you there!
