Hip-Hop Heavies at BUKU 2014


The festival market is a fast-moving, rapidly expanding industry stacked with line-ups typically more representative of a slightly subversive college kid's turntable during their fledgeling years of undergrad; milk crates filled with records bearing the names of indie rock bands more than conscientious or genre-bending hip-hop. What the early announcements of festivals this year have taught us is that there's a shift in reverence for the latter genre, making it a main contender for heavy-hitting headliner or must-see show.


BUKU 2014 Adds Sleigh Bells, Nas to Lineup


BUKU Music + Art Project has expanded their lineup, bulking out their EDM acts to include hip hop from Nas and Chance the Rapper. Other additions include Sleigh Bells, Carnage, GRiZ, Clockwork, Classixx (LIVE), Treasure Fingers, Young & Sick, and indie dance favorite Dan Deacon. Click through for the full lineup, and purchase tickets here.


Flaming Lips, David Guetta to Play Buku 2014


It's almost  time to Coyne a new Buku Music + Art Project. Space-psych heroes and liveshow mad scientists The Flaming Lips will headline the third edition of the post-Carnival fest at Mardi Gras World. From Gravity A to Zedd, the initial lineup for the March 21-22 fest also features plenty of offerings from the nexus EDM, hip-hop and indie rock.
