Essence Festival is rolling out the purple carpet for its 2014 event.

Singer-songwriter Prince has been announced as headliner for the 20th annual Essence Festival, a celebration of music and culture being held July 3-6 in New Orleans.

Prince, who performed at Essence in 2004, also headlined this year’s South By Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Texas. His newest single, “Screwdriver,” debuted earlier this year.

Essence has been held every Independence Day weekend since 1995, when it marked the 25th anniversary of Essence magazine. The festival includes nightly concerts at the Louisiana Superdome and empowerment seminars during the day at a nearby convention center.

Organizers say the rest of the lineup will be announced at a later date.

  1. Just put your cooking pans and frying pans into the proper section of you dishwashing machineand let the burst of water rinse them
    so powerfully without any traces of mess and oil left. These
    include an ice cream maker, juicer, slicer, strainer,
    and ravioli maker. You should have a healthy
    breakfast because you will require energy to carry out your tasks.
