The Essence Music Festival, known as “the party with a purpose”, is an annual music festival which started in 1995 as a one-time event to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of ESSENCE, a magazine aimed primarily towards African-American women. It is the largest event celebrating African-American culture and music in the United States. Locally referred to as the Essence Fest, it has been held in New Orleans, Louisiana every year since 1995 except for 2006, where it was held in Houston, Texas due to Hurricane Katrina. It features artists simultaneously performing on a main stage as well as four standing-room only superlounge stages.
Beyonce is headlining the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans for 2013.
The Philly 4th of July Jam takes place during Wawa Welcome America!, a multi-day festival that celebrates America’s birthday in America’s birthplace, Philadelphia.
If you’re trying to figure out what to do after that last burger has been grilled and drink has been poured on the Fourth of July, then VH1 has the perfect cookout wind down for you. For the past two years, the City of Brotherly Love has been providing Philadelphians with the perfect way to cap off their Independence Day festivities with the Philly 4th of July Jam. While typically the show is only enjoyed by local audiences, VH1 is ensuring that the free concert can be enjoyed by a much wider audience this year with a live telecast. Hosted by comedian Kevin Hart, this year’s concert will feature performances by Jill Scott, J. Cole, Ne-Yo, John Mayer and Demi Lovato, with The Roots handling house band duties. Questlove and Black Thought will also serve as the Jam’s musical directors.
Billed as the largest free concert in America, the show takes place on the Ben Franklin Parkway and will end with a fireworks display over the iconic Philadelphia Museum of Art. If you’re not in the area, then have no fear; the show will be simulcast live on VH1 and Palladia, in addition to being live streamed on VH1.com on Thursday, July 4 from 8-11 pm EST. Executive producer Shawn Gee expressed his excitement about this year’s event saying, “Now with our new partners VH1, the entire country will be able to experience the annual party we have been throwing for 500,000 of our closest friends on the Ben Franklin Parkway each year.”
