Beyonce already announced last week at the Superbowl that she will be going on a world tour this spring.

Well there is one city that she will be shutting down twice New Orleans. It was recently announced that she will be headlining the festival this coming 4th July. This performance is not a part of her tour and it  is sure to be amazing. Joining Beyonce are the likes of Jill Scott, Keyshia Cole, Maxwell and New Edition.

Essence  Communications President, Michelle Ebanks released the following statement on Bey being a part of the show:

“We are incredibly excited to welcome Beyonce back to the 2013 ESSENCE Festival line-up. She is truly the ultimate ESSENCE woman.  If you missed her tour de force in New Orleans, please join us this Fourth of July weekend so that you can experience it live for yourself at the ESSENCE Festival. The ESSENCE Festival features the best in music, culture, arts and entertainment—all of which Beyonce captures through her extraordinary gifts.”

This years Essence Music Festival is sure to be stellar.
