Beyonce To Headline Essence Festival In New Orleans

The Year of the Bey continues: Beyonce will return to the Superdome in New Orleans as a headliner for the Essence Festival, and hopefully this time they’ll have enough power at the stadium to sustain an entire set. The festival takes place July 4-7 , with Bey taking one of three headlining slots. This performance will come a few days after her first US date on her Mrs. Carter Show tour, on June 28 in L.A.

Other acts appearing at the festival include Brandy, Jill Scott, Keyshia Cole, LL Cool J, Maxwell and New Edition.
