BIG FREEDIA

Big Freedia

SUNDAY, JUNE 9

The Queen of Bounce graces Allegheny Commons Park West on Sunday for the third annual People’s Pride. Big Freedia, who ran the New Orleans club scene for over two decades, popularized the vibrant twist on hip hop by bringing bounce music to the mainstream level through collaborations with hitmakers like Beyoncé (“Formation”) and Sia (“Eye of the Needle”). Big Freedia Bounces Back, the New Orleans native’s reality show on Fuse, has further spread the bounce movement documenting the life of a gay choirboy turned bounce rapper. Having played at festivals such as Outside Lands, Fun Fun Fun Fest, and Pittsburgh’s first VIA Festival in 2010, Big Freedia is no stranger to the stage. 3 p.m. West Ohio St., North Side.
