According to the YBF, she will be headlining one of the nights during the weekend.
Michelle Ebanks, Essence Communications President, gave a little insight as to why Bey was added to the lineup:
“We are incredibly excited to welcome Beyonce back to the 2013 ESSENCE Festival line-up. She is truly the ultimate ESSENCE woman. If you missed her tour de force in New Orleans, please join us this Fourth of July weekend so that you can experience it live for yourself at the ESSENCE Festival. The ESSENCE Festival features the best in music, culture, arts and entertainment—all of which Beyonce captures through her extraordinary gifts.”
She forgot, “because she’s Beyonce!” Duh. So far, performers include Jill Scott, Maxwell, Keyshia Cole, New Edition, Brandy, LL Cool J, Mint Condition, Charlie Wilson and Bridget Kelly.
