    We Asked People At Essence Fest What It Means To Be Southern

    Class, sass, and lots of ass!

    The Essence Festival is a music festival held by Essence magazine every year in New Orleans.

    .@maryjblige @kendricklamar @tromboneshorty and #floetry are about to blaze this stage! Stay tuned! #BringTheLove!

    The festival draws more concertgoers than both Coachella and South by Southwest.

    The festival attracts people from all over the world, but a lot of them are Southerners, born and bred.
