Essence magazine just announced through their website and twitter that Janet Jackson will be headlining their 2010 Essence Music Festival concert! This is Janet’s first time appearing at Essence’s annual weekend-long R&B and soul music event – which is set to take place 4th of July weekend in New Orleans.

Other artists set to perform at this year’s Essence Music Festival include Mary J. Blige, Alicia Keys, Earth Wind & Fire, Keri Hilson, Gladys Knight, Monica, Raphael Saadiq, Jill Scott, Trey Songz, Joe, Mary Mary, Chrisette Michele, Melanie Fiona, Estelle, Lalah Hathaway, and many more to be announced!

I’ve always said I wanted to plan a trip and get to one of Essence’s festivals, but due to timing or finances (or both), I’ve never been able to make it. Maybe 2010 will be the year – going to start saving up now!
