The July 4th holiday is upon us, so you know what that would typically mean right…time for Essence Festival weekend, but due to this annoying little thing called COVID-19, those plans have been put on hold until 2021. Never fret, because we’ve got ya’ll with a little something.
We’ve been fortunate enough to have covered the “party with a purpose” for the past 5 years, and had the opportunity to see some AMAZING concerts. From those shows, we were able to get a little bit of footage and want to bring the experience to you. Presenting the #CDEMFTakeover, where we will stream 3 concerts from the festivals past, to coincidence with the normal run of the event weekend.
There will literally be something for everyone’s entertainment. Kicking off the weekend, on Friday you’ll be treated to the iconic Prince and his last showing at the festival in 2014, Saturday night’s show will be the energetic and highly entertaining young pop starlet Normani, while Sunday we’ll conclude our weekend with Xscape‘s return concert back from 2017, which literally shut down the entire third floor of the Superdome. All shows will start at 8 PM nightly, and can either be accessed via our main website or on our FB page.
