In celebration of the Essence Festival’s 20th Anniversary, the annual weekend-long music festival has announced international superstar Prince as one of the main headliners.
“Welcoming an artist as iconic as Prince back to the Essence Festival for a 20th anniversary performance is incredibly exciting,” Essence Communications president Michelle Ebanks said in a statement. “The Essence Festival is where we come together to connect to both our culture and our community, so we are pleased to support Prince and the Rebuild the Dream Innovation Fund in advocating for our youth.”
Prince has not performed at the Essence Festival since 2004, so this will surely be a special moment for his fans.
The 2014 Essence Festival is set for July 2-6, 2014 at the Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.
