Returning for another year to New Orleans, this year’s BUKU Music + Art Project is set to be another one for the books. One of the more unique festival experiences, the event will take place March 11 & 12 at Mardi Gras World located on the Mississippi River. Fans have been anxiously awaiting the release of the full lineup since this past fall when the first phase of artists was announced. According to the latest, the already-stacked list of performers that included Kid Cudi, Pretty Lights, Yellow Claw and CHURCHES will be joined by band Purity Ring, hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd, electronic artist Deorro, and many more!
If you haven’t had the chance to attend BUKU yet, you really should treat yourself and check it out. In 2013, I was privileged enough to go and was blown away by the production quality and incredible atmosphere. Along with amazing musical performances, BUKU stays true to being both a music and art festival with installment art displays and local vendors. This year, they’re “excited to announce that BUKU has commissioned six local New Orleans’ collectives to curate showcases in the grassy “Front Yard” area of the festival grounds” to add to the creative encounter that is the BUKU Music + Art Project.
