Music festivalgoers, rejoice! After many cancellations due to COVID-19 restrictions, BUKU Fest is set to occur March 25-26.

Hosted by the BUKU Music + Art Project, BUKU Fest will be celebrating its 10-year anniversary in person, which will take place against the backdrop of the Market Street Power Plant, overlooking the idyllic Mississippi River. This year's festival will include a plethora of top-tier musicians that captured the music industry by storm, as well as art installations, graffiti art, and pop-up breakdancing crews.

This year's lineup consists of the world's most impactful artists in music history, including Grammy Award-winning rapper Tyler, The Creator, psychedelic rock band Tame Impala, electro house artist Porter Robinson, indie rock band Glass Animals, and electronic music DJ Amelie Lens. Local artists, including Antwigadee!, DJ Legatron Prime, $UICIDEBOY$, and BuckTen B2B Don Peyote will also perform at the festival, which prides itself on fostering the musical talents of artists gaining recognition in the city.

Tickets will be sold on December 20, with General Admission tickets starting at $239.50 plus fees and General Admission Plus tickets starting at $339.50 plus fees. In addition, there will be two VIP packages available for purchase. The regular VIP package, starting at $429.50 plus fees, will include rooftop and viewing deck access. Guests will enjoy views of the two main stages, exclusive food and bar items, a fast-track entry lane, a chill area, and air-conditioned restrooms. The TooBuku package, starting at $789.50 plus fees, will include the same amenities but with viewing decks with lounge seating, an open bar, snack areas, a locker, unlimited re-entry to the festival, access to the Grand Oaks Mansion, and one official BUKU after-party of choice.

In addition to fostering a boutique festival that celebrates the artistic and musical culture of New Orleans, BUKU Music + Art Project will also carry on with its mission in giving back to the community by working alongside Upbeat Academy Foundation, an after-school program that works to empower youth through music education. BUKU tickets help make their mission possible.
