Ya Heard Me! New Orleans Bounce

Friday, March 18
5:00PM - 6:00PM

Austin Convention Center
Room 15
531 E 4th St


Bounce is an energetic sub-genre of Hip-Hop which originated in New Orleans in the 1980's-1990's. The purpose of this panel is to allow others to learn about its creation, meet some local bounce artists & DJs and lead a discussion on the current state and future of New Orleans Bounce. Although today’s Bounce has become saturated with LBGTQ individuals, the differences in lifestyle choices have help in the amplification and evolution of New Orleans Bounce Music. Collectively, LBGTQ and non-affiliated LBGTQ artists, DJs, producers, dancers etc. have covered much ground. Yet the question still remains: Will Bounce Music ultimately reach mainstream success?
