Big Freedia is coming to the circus! The circus is coming to Brooklyn! The Queen of Bounce will play at the Lagunitas Beer Circus in Coney Island on October 1st, before her fall tour kicks off in support of her 2nd full length LP, Pressing Onward. Not only is the New Orleans rap ambassador bringing the bounce to Brooklyn, she will be joined by none other than Mini Kiss – one of the most popular little KISS cover bands in existence!
The Beer Circus’ big top, midway and multiple stages will go up at the MCU Stadium Lot. It’ll be jam packed with freaktacular entertainment, including 100+ circus and burlesque acts, carnival rides, and, of course, BEER: featuring Lagunitas IPA, PILS, Pale, Maximus, Stoopid Wit, 12th of Never and more. Guest breweries are bringing more beer to the party, including Greenport Harbor Brewing, Coney Island Brewing and Industrial Arts, while tasty treats galore will be provided by food trucks from Coney Shack, Burger Warrior, Andy’s Italian Ice and other local favorites. And of course, live music from Big Freedia, Mini Kiss, Wet Secrets and more!
Profits from beer sales benefit Alliance for Coney Island, Inc.. Formed in 2012, they’re “dedicated to continuing the transformation of Coney Island into a year-round, world-class recreational destination by the sea.” Coney Island is not just an amusement park, but a neighborhood and vibrant community with a rich and fascinating history. Proceeds from the circus will benefit the Alliance and the home it shares with over 50,000 residents. That’s a big Sumpin’ Sumpin’!
