As ESSENCE continues to work closely with city and state officials to rebuild the city of New Orleans, The 2006 Essence Music Festival will be temporarily relocated to Houston, Texas. Plans are underway for the annual event, which will be held on July 1, 2, and 3, 2006 at Reliant Park. A component of the 2006 Festival will be devoted to helping those affected by Hurricane Katrina. More details will be announced in the weeks ahead, and tickets will go on sale December 1.

Good job for Essence keeping the Festival alive.
