Three-time Grammy Award winner, dedicated to saving our streets as an activist and a young music mogul — Chance The Rapper will now headline the already star-studded Essence Fest lineup as another headlining act.

The genius from 79th will join Diana Ross, John Legend and Mary J. Blige at the top of the bill. With the announcement that there will also be a No Limit Reunion performance featuring Mystikal, Mia X, Silkk the Shocker and Master P, it is looking like a plane ticket down to NOLA is necessary.

The Essence Festival will be held June 30 to July 2, and will feature other performers such as BJ The Chicago Kid, Emily Estefan and Elle Varner. Ticket packages are on sale now! For more info about tickets, accommodations and the latest news, visit their Festival page here.
