A fixture in the New Orleans club scene, Big Freedia is at the forefront of bounce and alternative hip hop. Her newest album, 2014’s Just Be Free has helped the American MC spread her hometown sounds and fevered live show to new audiences worldwide.
The New Orleans ambassador of bounce is renowned for her high-energy shows and plans to share the mojo with a bounce workshop taking place before each show to make sure you got your swagger down.
Helping Big Freedia in teaching fans how to shake it to the up-tempo bass-dripping beats will be her relentless dance crew. The Divas. Those heading along to the workshops will participate in a Q&A session with Big Freedia and get a crash course in bouncing. Wear comfortable shoes. You’ve been warned.
Tickets are for both the workshops and headlining shows can be bought separately. However, if you’re a ticket holder for one of Big Freedia’s club shows you can also attend the corresponding workshop. Both workshops will run for one hour and take place at 6:30pm (local time), two hours before the show at the gig’s venue.
The two Fall Festival sideshows will take place in Melbourne, at the end of December, and in Sydney, at the beginning of January. Tickets are on sale now. Full tour information below.
