ABOUT THE ESSENCE MUSIC FESTIVAL: Dance and sing along with the biggest names in rhythm & blues, classic soul, hip-hop, pop-fink, neo-soul and jazz. Over 50 acts a night play on five stages at the Superdome. The Essence Festival, known as "the party with a purpose", is an annual music festival which started in 1995 as a one-time event to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Essence, a magazine aimed primarily towards African-American women. It is the largest event celebrating African-American culture and music in the United States. Locally referred to as the Essence Fest, it has been held in New Orleans, Louisiana every year since 1994 except for 2006, when it was held in Houston, Texas due to Hurricane Katrina. It features artists simultaneously performing on a main stage as well as four standing-room only superlounge stages.
