BUKU is the creative intersection of an underground warehouse party and major urban music festival fusing a progressive and diverse musical Set against the uniquely New Orleans backdrop of the haunting Market Street Power Plant and the historic grounds of the old TwiRoPa venue, Planet B aims to harness the chaos of the last year and release it in the form of raw creativity. “For the past year, we’ve watched our fans step outside of their comfort zones and persevere through weird times,” said Dante DiPasquale, BUKU’s co-creator. “PLANET B is the result of us being inspired by them to do the same, and all of us at Team BUKU are excited to finally party with them again.”

Attendees will be guided between multiple stages, art installations, street performers, and a plethora of surprises. BUKU: Planet B will be the ultimate release for music fans in dire need of connection and creative exploration

In addition to showcasing the vibrant culture of New Orleans, the organizers of BUKU continue their Social Responsibility Commitment by fostering a diverse and inclusive environment. In 2020, they launched their Take Action Project (“TAP”) with Upbeat Academy which has raised over $10,000 for racial justice, voting rights, and environmental sustainability organizations.
