In case you haven't heard, our favorite on-screen bae, Idris Elba, will be joining us at this year's ESSENCE Festival to give everyone a taste of his DJ skills.

ESSENCE Festival 2018 tickets are on sale now! For more info and the latest news, visit our Festival page HERE.

Certainly not a veteran to the DJ game, Elba has been heating up turntables for over a decade. In addition to spinning at All-Star weekend parties and Pre-Emmy shindigs, the Golden Globe Award-winning and Emmy-nominated entertainer has also played London's massive Glastonbury Festival and released a total of 4 EPs to date.

Most recently, Idris released a new dance single titled, "A Run, A Row," in April.

Watch the video above to hear why Idris' performance is one you absolutely can't miss and then be sure to grab your tickets to join us at the 2018 ESSENCE Festival in New Orleans this July.
