BUKU IS BACK.
At the onset of a global pandemic, Louisiana’s premier music & art festival was forced to make a series of cancellations amidst public health concerns...
Now, BUKU is back, just in time for the 10th anniversary.
The uniquely local flair of the BUKU Music + Art Project has always embodied the creative spirit of post-Katrina New Orleans. With a clear passion for New Orleans’ culture, the festival is an immersive, community-focused event that showcases visual artists, street performers, and live music, always with a super diverse lineup of artists from across the nation.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the BUKU Music + Art Project, but it’s been almost three years since the festival has gone down. The pandemic has not been kind to BUKU. In March of 2020, the festival was forced to postpone just as preparations were underway.
And while several plans were made to reschedule the event later that year, it wasn’t able to happen. Even just last fall, plans for “BUKU: Planet B” were cut short by mounting concerns surrounding outbreaks of the Delta variant.
Now, it’s back and better than ever.
