Prince is the first headliner announced for the 2014 Essence Festival in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The 20th anniversary Essence Fest is set to take place in the Big Easy on July 3-6, 2014.

The only other time the icon has performed at Essence was in 2004. He previously attended the festival as a backstage guest, checking out the entire production to see if he would be interested in performing again.

“Welcoming an artist as iconic as Prince back to the Essence Festival for a 20th anniversary performance is incredibly exciting,” Essence president Michelle Ebanks exclaimed.

The remaining 2014 headliners are set to be unveiled within the next few months.
