This year, the Queen of Bounce herself, Big Freedia, will share the stage with the funky collective. Also on the bill is musician, singer and songwriter Myron Thomas.


Big Sam and Big Freedia were recently co-billed at the massive National Fried Chicken Festival, so their on-stage chemistry is well documented.
