Big Freedia

Big Freedia, known as the Queen of Bounce, is a New Orleans-based rapper and ambassador of Bounce music. After dominating the New Orleans club scene for over a decade, Big Freedia is now bringing the Bounce movement to a world-wide stage with her hit reality show, Big Freedia Bounces Back on Fuse TV.

Big Freedia has collaborated with artists ranging from Sia, Elliphant, The Postal Service, Matt & Kim, and Mannie Fresh, and Sylvan Esso.

Big Freedia continues to tour over a hundred dates a year with her legendary shake team, who are bring Bounce moves like “the twerk” (popularized by Miley Cyrus in 2013), “the shake” “the wiggle,” “the bend ova,” the “hands on the ground,” to audiences worldwide. Big Freedia is a consistent festival favorite, known to steal the show at Outside Lands, Fun Fun Fun Fest, Bonnaroo, FYF and many more.

In 2015, Big Freedia penned her first memoir, Big Freedia: God Save the Queen Diva! on Gallery Books/Simon & Schuster.
