The Read Is Teaming Up With Our Yes, Girl! Podcast For An Epic ESSENCE Festival Debut


What do you get when you combine one of pop culture’s most notoriously hilarious podcast with the country’s biggest celebration of Black women and Black culture? Magic, of course!

The 2018 ESSENCE Festival is excited to welcome The Read podcast to the Festival for the first time ever, with not just one, but two opportunities for fans and festival-goers to see them do what they do best straight from New Orleans.


In addition to our very own ESSENCE "Yes, Girl!" podcast making their ESSENCE Fest debut, we're also excited to welcome The Read podcast to the Festival for the very first time.

On Friday, July 6, The Read hosts Kid Fury and Crissle will broadcast live from NOLA’s Joy Theater, following an opening segment by the hosts of our Yes, Girl! podcast, for a night full of laughs and a hearty serving of tea. 

Bringing a double dose of everything you love about the show, The Read will also make their ESSENCE Festival concert debut at the Superdome, where they will host our new Festival Fusion superlounge for the evening. 

Tickets to attend The Read’s live ESSENCE Fest weekend broadcast on July 6 are on sale now at TheReadLive.com. Be sure to also grab your Superdome concert tickets to catch The Read hosting our Festival Fusion superlounge HERE.

See you in NOLA!
