About this trip

Essence Festival, is largest music festival in the country that celebrates African-American culture. The event was originally planned as a one-time event to celebrate the silver jubilee of  Essence magazine.

The main idea behind the event is to empower and offer a platform to musicians, artists, speakers, and entrepreneurs of the African-American community.

Where You'll Stay

Hampton Inn & Suites- French Quarter


 We’re in the heart of downtown New Orleans, two blocks from Bourbon Street and the French Quarter. The Mercedes-Benz Superdome, Smoothie King Center, and Riverwalk are within a mile. We’re on the St. Charles streetcar line – hop on to admire the historic architecture of the Warehouse Arts District and uptown. Daily hot breakfast and WiFi are on us. 


 

Check in: 3pm

Check out: 11am

Valet Parking:  Overnight parking is $50 per day. 

Things to Consider

 Some great things to know:


- To get around New Orleans, we would mostly be using the Street Cars/Trolley. Price is $3 for the entire day

- Ridesharing is very expensive during the peak hours of Essence Fest

- Frenchman Street is way better than Bourbon Street

- Stay hydrated

- Bring sunscreen and hand sanitizer

- Follow Essence Fest on social media to stay updated on announcements and ticket sales .

Packing

  What to Pack

  • 2-3 bathing suits and cover ups (caftans and sarongs are great too)
  • Several dresses, rompers 
  • Shorts and t-shirts, if you prefer
  • Flip flops and strappy sandals- leave the heels at home
  • Light sweater or wrap for evenings
  • A summery cross-body bag for around town and/or straw clutch for evenings 
  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen 
  • Antibacterial wipes
  • Anti-chafing balm – it’ll be hot, so it keeps your thighs from chafing (glam, I know)
  • Battery pack
  • Collapsible Water Bottle

Terms & Conditions

 

We K Prime Travel  and are excited to help you with your travel needs. Please get familiar with our Terms & Conditions. 

The following terms and conditions apply to any trip booked with Lakeshia White-K Prime Travel (hereinafter referred to as “KPT” “our” “us”).  By booking a trip with KPT you (hereinafter referred to as, “you” “your” or “traveler”) acknowledge that you (i) are 21 years of age or older, (ii) understand and accept these terms and conditions (the “Terms and Conditions”) and (iii) are entering into a contractual relationship with TLAB.

Price Policy

All trip prices are as posted on the KPT website at the time of booking and do not include airfare.  Trips are priced per person, based on shared occupancy.  Single rooms may be available at an additional cost and the prices will be listed where applicable.  Prior to booking, prices are subject to change without notice.  If you are using our payment plan option, you must submit a non-refundable, non-transferable, per person deposit (equivalent to the first month’s installment payment or other amount determined by KPT in its sole discretion) at the time of booking to reserve your space.

If Traveler fails to submit payment in full by 45 days prior to the date of arrival, KPT reserves the right to cancel booking and retain 100% of funds paid.

KPT will notify Traveler in writing of the date & frequency of the scheduled payments.

If payment has not been submitted within seven (7) days of the first payment attempt, TLAB will cancel the Travelers booking and & retain all paid funds.
