See Essence Festival’s main stage and Superlounge performance times during the 2018 Essence Festival
The music festival has two separate entities within the Mercedes Benz Superdome going on at the same time. There are main stage performances like Janet Jackson, Mary J. Blige, Snoop Dogg, Queen Latifah, Xscape, and Fantasia and then there are Superlounge performances with stars like Marsha Ambrosius, Lloyd, Ella Mai, Kelly Price, Kevin Ross, H.E.R. and Ro James.
The Superlounge performances are very intimate performances that take place on smaller stages throughout the Superdome. These performances are personable and intimate while the main stage performances give the complete concert experience.
