Buku Music + Art Project is a festival that keeps getting bigger and better.
Taking its cue from the French word, “beaucoup” – meaning “plenty” – Winter Circle Productions premiered the Buku Music + Art Project in 2012. In addition to Winter Circle, the event is now co-produced by Huka Entertainment and MCP Presents.
As in previous years, Buku will be staged along the Mississippi Riverfront in the vicinity of Blaine Kern’s Mardi Gras World. The dates are March 9 and 10, 2018.
Like most New Orleans festivals, this one will also feature music, food and locally produced art. The music specialties are EDM, hip-hop and various sub-genres of indie rock.
There will be large-scale art installations, exotic culinary specialties and special VIP packages that include rides on the Mississippi aboard the Creole Queen, an authentic paddlewheel riverboat.
