Thursday, June 6: DJ Shawna

pridefest_milwaukee_djshawnaDJ Shawna spins at the Weekend Launch Party on Thursday, June 6 with special guest Lex Allen.

A new type of DJ and movement was formed over a decade ago on the western shores of Lake Michigan.

Former professional basketball player Shawna Nichols became DJ Shawna and disrupted the male-dominated industry en route to becoming one of the Midwest’s premier open format DJs.

The Milwaukee native has a knack for effortlessly bringing a room together with her infectious personality and high-energy mixes, keeping crowds engaged and begging for more.

DJ Shawna has made her presence felt on a national and international scale with past residencies in Milwaukee, Chicago, Madison, Louisville and even Europe.  In just 2017 alone, DJ Shawna has performed for the Milwaukee Brewers, Milwaukee Bucks, NCAA and Marquette Women’s basketball.

lexallen_pridefest_milwaukeeShawna and her #DareToBe movement has inspired people all over the globe to be their best selves and to never stop reaching for the stars.
