Team Freedia Kicks Off SXSW 2014 with Cake and Hairspray

The Season 2 premiere of Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce brought the return of resident queen diva Big Freedia to the national stage, and what better way to send a message than with an exclusive set at SXSW?

It was no-diva-left-behind as Team Freedia piled into one large van bright and early for a multi-hour drive to Austin. "We're packed tight this time 'cause I wanted to bring the whole team," Freedia says. "Melvin there, Renee there, Torelle there, Freedia there—everybody, everywhere!"

And once they stepped foot onto festival grounds, it was straight to the invite-only FADER Fort, where the team cleaned up, snapped photos and celebrated FADER president Andy Cohn's birthday.

Check out the exclusive deleted scene, and don't miss next week's episode of Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce Wednesday at 11/10c! Find Fuse in your area.
