Beacoup Music at BUKU This Weekend

NOLA Hip-Hop, Indie, Electronic Music Fest Returns for Sixth Year



BUKU Music + Art Project takes place each year in New Orleans at the perfect time post-Carnival and before the summer’s mega-festivals like Coachella, Bonnaroo, and Lollapalooza take over everyone's social media feeds. Now in its sixth year, BUKU (a play on “beaucoup") lives up to its name — inviting over 70 of the most exciting talents in hip hop, EDM, indie rock & pop to take the stage at Mardi Gras World for a 48-hour music extravaganza this weekend.

Now, more to do this Saturday.
