ICYMI: ESSENCE Music Fest’s 2018 Lineup Includes Janet Jackson, Mary. J. Blige, Daniel Caesar, H.E.R., The Read and More

Just when you think ESSENCE‘s annual music festival lineup can’t top the year’s before, they prove us wrong. Last year, festival goers were spotted planning escape routes from one stage to another to catch all their favorite artists’ performances in the jam-packed lineup that all but disappointed and we’ll likely be doing it again this year. Staying at its home base in New Orleans, this year’s festival will be held from July 5th – 8th with headliners Janet Jackson, Mary J. Blige, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott and Snoop Dogg in “special curation by The Roots.”

Special guest performances by Miguel, Kool Moe Dee, Daniel Caesar, H.E.R., Fantasia, BlackStreet, Guy, X’Scape, Kelly Price, Kelela, DVSN, Ro James, Mali Music and more are also set to go down during the three-day event. And everyone’s faves over The Read (podcast) Crissle and Kid Fury are making history as the first podcast to host a show during the Black joy mega-festival, so it’s definitely one you don’t want to miss.
