The Buku Music and Art Project - sometimes stylized as the BUKU Music + Art Project - is a two-day arts festival that takes place in New Orleans each year. EDM music, dance music and hip-hop are the primary genres fans will enjoy as part of the Buku experience. Various surprise artists and newcomers have performed at the Buku venue over the years.
The managers at the Buku Music and Art Project consider it be to be a smaller, more boutique-style festival that delivers the names and awesomeness of larger events in the area. Buku seeks to create an atmosphere that is intimate without sacrificing headliners or excited crowds. Since its formation in 2012, Buku has had steady lineups of headliners in the industry and kept its mix of electronic and hip-hop music pretty even, much to the delight of fans from both genres.
