Janet Jackson Joins 2024 Essence

We are still waiting for the Essence Festival 2024 Lineup, but now, at least, we have some info about the first headliners. Janet Jackson is joining the event once again. A significant part of this story is that it makes perfect sense for Janet Jackson to join the 30th Essence Festival. This is her fourth time at the festival, and the crowd loves her. She was part of Essence in 2010, 2018 and 2022.

Because of scheduling issues, Janet Jackson couldn’t join the lineup. The singer planned to perform at Smoothie King Center on her “Together Again Summer 2024” tour. That concert was canceled, and Janet Jackson announced she was set to join the Essence Festival lineup again. The festival takes place from 4 to 7 July, and she will perform on the last day of the festival. The official tour schedule added the performance at Caesars Superdome to Janet’s official tour dates. At the moment, Janet is on tour in the USA. The US tour will finish on July 30, with a concert in Phoenix, AZ, and from September 25, she is going to Europe.

The last time she was part of the festival show in 2022, she hit a record of 48,500 filled seats, and it was the festival record-grossing night.

Janet Jackson at Essence Festival 2022

Janet fans are still awaiting the release of the “Black Diamond” album. The singer announced the album in 2020, along with a tour. COVID-19 stopped the album’s release; a few years later, it still needs to be released. There is nothing official, but we are hoping! However, new music is undoubtedly coming.

Even though it’s something that I absolutely love, it still is my work, my job. There will be music at some point. Exactly when? I can’t say just yet, but there will be. I love it too much not to do it. This is all I know. There’s so much that I want to do—but my number one job is being a mama.”

Essence Festival 2024 had another grand unveiling last week. Birdman will join Janet as one of the festival’s headliners. Exciting news for the Cash Money Millionaires fans: Together with Birdman, the collective will have a reunion at this year’s Essence. In the coming weeks, we will discover who else is coming from Cash Money Millionaires. We are still waiting for the rest of the artists who are joining the event. The lineup is late this year, but we hope some great additions will compensate for the waiting.
