Buku Music and Art Project Heads Into Year 3

This is not your typical music festival. The creators of this New Orleans event set out to bring concert-goers amazing music in a more intimate setting than most gigantic, chart-topping festivals are able to do. Not only that, but they've brought in some of the best local and international artists to fill the festival grounds with beautiful artwork. What started out as a one-time gig has turned into an annual festival that fans look forward to every year!


The Buku Music and Art Project is a festival based in New Orleans, Louisiana, that blends together - you guessed it, music and arts! It's held annually at Mardi Gras World and features big name and local musicians and heaps of great artwork to view and to buy. Always held in the spring, the festival takes over all of March, despite only being one weekend long!


The folks who started Buku set out to make it the kind of event that offers everything you need without leaving the festival grounds. This means that in addition to the stellar music and art you'll find featured, you can also get awesome indigenous New Orleans cuisine - not your typical festival fare! Not only that, but this festival is held right on the New Orleans Riverfront at one of the leading Mardi Gras float production houses! How's that for a slice of NOLA history? You can find awesome stages and views of New Orleans and the Mississippi River, which makes for a pretty ideal festival setting. The VIP Riverboat next to the festival offers an excellent view of the main stage.


The festival has two years under its belt already and past headliners have included Wiz Khalifa, Diplo, Grammatik, Skrillex, Flux Pavilion, Zedd, Japandroids, Passion Pit, Nero, Flosstradamus, Daedalus and Dragonette, just to name a few. For 2014, the roster features The Flaming Lips, Ellie Goulding, David Guetta, Kaskade, Zedd, Chromeo, Explosions In the Sky, Tyler the Creator and DJ Snake, along with many others! The founders try to bring a blend of electronic, hip-hop and local musical styles to suit a variety of interests.


The first year of Buku in 2012 was so well-attended that the producers had no question about hosting it again and it's now moving into its third year. Buku was originally intended to be just a one-time deal but after the resounding popularity of the first year's efforts, the producers felt like it was a no-brainer to host it again the next year, and now again in 2014! Not only did their musical tastes and artistic creation create a buzz about the festival, but the phenomenal cuisine, featuring some of New Orleans best cooking, also spurned a lot of hype about how this was a "different kind of show."

Show Experience

Buku Music and Arts Project tickets are your portal into a world of eclectic music that runs from classical to contemporary and hits every note in between. The festival was started by Winter Circle Promotions in 2012, and their aim was to bring a wide variety of music into a more intimate setting. The result is big-name artists performing on small stages - sounds like a dream, doesn't it? Fans get to see their favorite artists take the stage for two straight days. In between shows, you get to wander through the installations by local and international artists. Buku Music and Art Project ticket holders will find everything from sculptures to paintings to graffiti and heaps of other creative works. The festival continues to grow year after year, so check it out while it's on the rise!
