ESSENCE is bringing us the 25th Annual ESSENCE Festival this summer and it looks like it’s going to be a GREAT time.

Hitting social media to make their big announcement, ESSENCE revealed the lineup for the three-day fiesta and so many of your faves will be hitting the stage. To name a few: Missy Elliott, Nas, Mary J. Blige, 702, Brandy, Anthony Hamilton, and more are set to perform. AND, many of Hip Hop and R&B’s up-and-coming acts have been secured, including City Girls, Jacquees, Queen Naija, H.E.R., and more. There will also be a special tribute to Aretha Franklin.
