Essence Music Festival tickets

Essence Music Festival tickets - Essence Music Festival tour dates

Essence Music Festival

If you were just born today or have somehow managed to miss out on hearing about the always entertaining Essence Music Festival that happens each and every year, then you have plenty of reason to get excited because 2014 is looking to be the biggest year for the festival yet. Well known around the country for bringing a wide array of artists for a multi-day concert experience like none other, the Essence Music Festival is your best bet to catch all of your favorite artists in one place. This festival has been happening each year for almost two decades, so if you haven't yet the chance to experience this one of a kind festival then now is the perfect chance! As is tradition, the whole thing will take place in New Orleans, Louisiana, on the fourth of July weekend for a nonstop musical experience that you won't soon forget. Packing so much fun into a single day event would be impossible, so it is one of those events where you can either pick one, two, or even all three days to head out and have the time of your life. However, if you're going to be going in for the long haul it would be wise to get your accommodations in order sooner rather than later, and the same goes for getting your tickets no matter how long you'll be going. This is a massive event that will undoubtedly be selling out in no time, so do yourself a favor and grab your tickets from StubHub so that you can be lucky enough to make it to the event.


About The Event

Like many events, the Essence Music Festival first originated in 1995 as a celebration, and was actually meant to be a one time event. The cause for celebration was for the 25th Anniversary of the popular magazine Essence, and since the event quickly became the single largest event celebrating African American music and culture in the entire United States, it became a tradition that is carried on to this day. This is a three day festival of music that happens every fourth of July weekend, with 2014's event being the 20th anniversary of the festival, there are going to be a cavalcade of artists taking to the five stages across this entire event. The festival is made up of one main stage where some of the biggest headliners will take to the stage, but in addition to that there are also four other stages where ever more artists will be doing what they do best! There seems to be no stopping the popularity and success of this one of a kind music festival, and with artists like Prince already lined up to headline, this is bound to be the biggest festival yet!


Past Events

While the 2014 festival is already shaping up to be a massive success rife with some of the biggest artists around, past events have also touted lineups that would make any other festival look puny in comparison. Just in recent years there have been artists taking to the stage at this festival such as: Beyonce, Janet Jackson, Usher, Kanye West, Mary J. Blige, Morris Day & The Time, Alicia Keys, Talib Kwali, Stevie Wonder, Jamie Foxx, The Roots, Steve Harvey, Chris Brown, Common, and many more!


Essence Music Festival Trivia

There are plenty of reasons that the Essence Music Festival stand out among the festival and live music scene, with one of those being that each and every year for it's twenty year run it has appeared in the exact same location, all except for one year. It was in 2006 that the event was moved to Houston, Texas as a result of Hurricane Katrina, but ever since then has continued on with the tradition of making New Orleans, Louisiana the go-to spot for this giant music festival like none other.


Fan Experience

There are going to be so many artists taking to the stage at this event that it's highly likely that you'll have such a great time that festivals will be ruined forever, as they won't be able to capture the same magic, intensity, or entertainment that this one does. But if you're willing to take that risk for a weekend of complete and total musical entertainment, then you should grab your tickets from Stubhub today while they're still available. This is the kind of festival that will sell out in no time due to the wide array of artists all coming together, so if you really want to go then it would be smart to get your tickets from StubHub as soon as you can. StubHub is the best place to get the tickets that you need for the events that you're excited about, and don't forget to check back often to see all of the different kinds of fun events that are happening all over the country.
