The Essence Festival has realized its mistake of yesteryear and has corrected for the 2018 … Xscape will be on the main stage!
Last year, Xscape kicked off its highly anticipated reunion at Essence Fest. The quartet was given one of the small “Superlounges” in order to whet their fans palettes. Unfortunately, Essence severely underestimated the excitement the reunion had caused and didn’t realize a Superlounge wouldn’t be super enough to hold everyone. Fast-Forward to now — The ladies will hit the big stage alongside some pretty major acts!
And it doesn’t get more major than Janet Jackson. According to the press release obtained by HH, “the nightly concert series keeps the spotlight on women, featuring electrifying headline performances from Janet Jackson; Mary J. Blige; a headline set featuring Erykah Badu and Jill Scott, with special guests Snoop Dogg and many others in a special curation by The Roots; Xscape; Fantasia and Miguel.”
But, that’s not all, “For the first-time, the Festival will also feature an Essence Superlounge with a unique DJ-curated experience—with offerings by actor/DJ Idris Elba, MC Lyte and more. Also, for the first-time, the Festival welcomes an interactive music experience with The Read’s Kid Fury and Crissle hosting a Superlounge.”
The 2018 Essence Festival will take place July 5-8 in New Orleans at the Louisiana Superdome. For more info head over to Essence.com.
