After a 2 year hiatus BUKU Music & Arts Festival is back in New Orleans for 2 days March 25th & 26th. BUKU brings a diverse mix of music to the table with an atmosphere that can only be achieved in New Orleans. This year BUKU is bringing names like Tyler the Creator, Alison Wonderland, Clozee, $uicide Boy$, Glass Animals, John Summit, Tame Impala, Lane 8, Liquid Stranger, Mersiv, Porter Robinson, Rezz, SFam, Sullivan King, Svdden Death, Taking Back Sunday, Trippier Redd, Troyboi, Tvboo, Vince Staples, & Wreckno.
While a lot of people prefer camping festivals because of the “all night” style of partying, New Orleans basically never stops partying, so its one of the best city festivals that is more comparable to a camping fest. If you have extra time most people even stay in the city for an extra day or two before or after the festival to experience New Orleans more. The end of March is one of the best times to do it.
The entire experience of BUKU is that it offers a diversity in music that a lot of people crave but not many festivals specifically cater to, while also having the underground gritty NOLA atmosphere that people learn to grow & love when they go experience New Orleans. BUKU is no festival is the park & the grounds it’s held on is something you have to see for yourself. Each stage is perfectly placed & has plenty of space & different vantage points to choose from. Ive personally been to two previous BUKU’s & I always had to complaints, but it seems they always improved even when other people didn’t see the need for improvement. BUKU just gets better & better every year which is why its one of the best festivals in the country to experience.
Were just over a month away from BUKU, buy your tickets soon before time runs out!
