This year the tickets start at $126 for all three days making it one of the most affordable music fests of the year. With general admission tickets you gain entry into the super dome with access to the lounge level for no additional fee.  The VIP package will include front and center seating, VIP backstage passes with complimentary food and drink, a free one year subscription to the magazine, plus many more benefits. There will also be free events at the convention center with vendors, the Essence Empowerment Experience, and more; making this weekend packed full of fun and experiences.


Let’s get down to what people are really looking for though, the line up.


The three day concert will feature well known and lesser known artists. John Legend, Jhene Aiko, Mary J. Blige, Chance the Rapper, Diana Ross, India.Arie, Jasmine Sullivan, and  34 more artists will be hitting the stage to make the weekend one to remember.


They do not currently have travel packages set up, but with tickets that cheap, travel cost is less of a issue for the Essence concert goer.


Who are you looking forward to seeing live in concert?
