Buku Music + Art Project just dropped the first phase of its diverse 2018 lineup, and it's off to a great start. Now in its sixth year, the New Orleans-based festival has become known for featuring acts from across the spectrum, with a focus on electronic, indie, and hip-hop acts. Notable past artists include Diplo, Porter Robinson, ODESZA, Kid Cudi, Nas, Wiz Khalifa, Passion Pit, The Flaming Lips, and many many more.
Buku Fest's 2018 lineup features some of our favorites including Bassnectar, MGMT, SZA, Alison Wonderland, Borgore, Isaiah Rashad, Flatbush Zombies, Mura Masa, Smino, and a Soulection set. The festival takes place March 9 and 10 at New Orleans' Mardi Gras World. Attendees will experience multiple stages, including the Back Alley alongside the Mississippi River, the Float Den, which stores floats used for Mardi Gras, and the Power Plant stage, set under the backdrop of the defunct Market Street Power Plant. This festival is one of the better experiences we've seen with the emphasis on arts and culture bringing a great addition to all the incredible music.
There will also be vendors dishing out some of New Orleans' best food, live art and performance acts, and more. Be on the lookout for the next two phases of the lineup, grab tickets here, and enjoy!
