New Orleans bounce artist Big Freedia is coming to Dublin for a gig at the The Workmans Club, Dublin on 24th May.

Big Freedia is considered the Queen of Bounce, the genre known for its frenetic rhythms and booty-bounce moves like “the twerk”, “the shake” “the wiggle,” “the bend ova,” the “hands on the ground,”. Freedia featured on Beyoncé’s ‘Formation’.

Tickets priced €16 go on sale Friday 9th February at 9am through www.ticketmaster.ie & usual outlets nationwide.

Also worth a watch, N.E.R.D.’s hit song “Lemon” owes a lot to New Orleans bounce
