    Prince x NOLA x Essence Festival.

    Prince will headline the 20th anniversary of the Essence Festival, which will take place in New Orleans over Fourth of July weekend of next year.

    The festival will take place July 3-6 at the Superdome in New Orleans, with more artists to be announced shortly.

    Also, the Essence Festival will partner with Prince on a community initiative led by the Rebuild the Dream Innovation Fund, which encourages young people to explore the fields of computer technology and media.

    That is interesting, since Prince doesn't do iTunes or iPhones, nor does he tweet. He's an old-fashioned holdout.

    Have you seen Prince live? If so, how was he?
