One of our favorite annual events, the Essence Festival has just announced Janet Jackson and Mary J. Blige as its headliners for 2018. All roads will lead to New Orleans July 5-8 at the Mercedes Benz Superdome and Morial Convention Center. In addition to Jackson and Blige, the festival will also welcome a headline set curated by the Roots featuring Erykah Badu and Jill Scott, with special guests Snoop Dogg and many others. Xscape, Miguel and Fantasia are also scheduled to appear.
