ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
BUKU is the creative intersection of an underground warehouse party and major urban music festival fusing a progressive and diverse musical lineup with: a real-time Live Graffiti Gallery featuring local painters, one-of-a-kind industrial art installations, celebrated local cuisine, and “pop-up” street-style performances. The event features five stages, each with its own unique vibe ranging from a projection-mapped dilapidated “Power Plant” to the “Float Den” housing the city’s signature Mardi Gras parade floats, and sits on a unique festival site along the Mississippi River just a short distance from New Orleans’ famed French Quarter.
In addition to showcasing the vibrant culture of New Orleans, BUKU is an inclusive celebration. This year they’re focusing in on the Take Action Project aka “TAP”. The mission of the program is focused on using BUKU’s platform to elevate awareness around issues of various social & environmental justice issues, and taking action by organizing fan-mobilizing campaigns to generate donations and volunteer efforts in support of various charitable and community organizations!
