Published: Friday 10th Mar 2023 by Sam

Mary J. Blige is the embodiment of the ‘Strength of a Woman,’ so it’s fitting that the Queen of Hip-Hop/Soul has established a like-titled festival.

Back for its second year, the Live Nation Urban and Pepsi-powered extravaganza sees MJB bringing some of music’s most revered names to the stage for an unforgettable experience.

Full story below…

Housed in Atlanta, this year’s edition of the Strength of a Woman Festival & Summit will showcase performances from the likes of Blige, Lauryn Hill, Summer Walker, Robert Glasper, Mike Epps, Jodeci, Busta Rhymes, Jeezy, Method Man, Jadakiss, Lucky Daye, Coco Jones, Saucy Santana, Sunday Service Collective and Muni Long.

Various other activations and programs anchored in the upliftment of Black womanhood will also form part of the lineup.

Mary J. Blige, Founder of Strength of a Woman Festival & Summit said in a statement:

“I’m so excited to bring our Strength of a Woman Festival & Summit back to Atlanta for its second year. Having the opportunity to continue to uplift, inspire, and build amongst a community of women is the reason why we created this festival. I’m so grateful for all of the support from our performers and participants and of course Live Nation Urban, Pepsi and our additional partners who are committed to celebrating and creating community for Black women.”
