Seven Reasons to go KUKU for BUKU

Culture, Art, Music, Food.

Just a few words to describe the magic that encompasses New Orleans, Louisiana.

And now one more: BUKU.

For the fourth year in a row, Winter Circle Productions, Huka Entertainment, and MCP Presents outdo themselves with one of the most anticipated lineups for 2015. With an array of artistic talent, BUKU Music + Art Project not only satisfies the attendees with top of the line performances from multiple genres, but completely immerses them into the New Orleans culture for a weekend unlike any other. Being a two-year BUKU veteran myself, here are just a few reasons BUKU should be at the top of your list:


1. VIP Treatment the Only Right Way: On a Boat BUKU VIP

Special performances only for VIP? Unlimited free drinks? VIP only bathrooms & climate controlled lounge? All on a boat? Some can take note of the exclusive offers BUKU‘s VIP aboard the S.S. BLU-KU holds for it’s guests. These being just a few of the perks. Last year Big Freedia schooled us how to Twerk, among other special performances aboard the BLU-KU. Did I mention this is all on a boat?

2. Float Den

One of New Orleans pride and joy is in Mardi Gras. Never been? You’re missing out. No worries, you can get a taste of Mardi Gras season through one of the stages – the Float Den – during the festival. Taking place in a Mardi Gras float manufacturing warehouse, the Float Den takes stages to the next level with massive Mardi Gras floats outlining the perimeter of the warehouse.

3. Live Graffiti Gallery BUKU grafitti

During the duration of the festival, a live graffiti art gallery is taking place. Multiple graffiti artists gather together, making their own personal statements that attendees can auction on at the end and take home a piece of BUKU. One of the highlights of last year, was EDM’s very own Zach, aka Hooks from Zeds Dead’s, putting his own personal touch on the graffiti gallery.

4. Special ‘Pop Up’ Performances BUKU street perfomer 2

Street art & performers are a cultural statement to the city of New Orleans. Anyone who has previously visited can tell you the countless acts that line Bourbon Street, Royal Street, Frenchman Street, Jackson Square, and numerous others. This is a special feature BUKU adapts into this project – with local street performers and artist doing special “pop up” shows & moments – one never knows when or where the next act may be.

5. New Orleans, Louisiana

New Orleans in itself is a reason to check out this festival. The culture, the people, the food, the art – there is truly no where else (at least I have yet to find) that is as unique as this city. With the Mississippi River surrounding you, you truly feel at one with the city and what it has to offer. With late night after parties going well into the morning (*See Reason #6), Bourbon Street a five minute cab ride away, and 24 hour bars – there’s certainly something for new visitors to truly get a taste of the Big Easy.

6. Late Night After Parties buku late

Just because of this. Pre-sale began today & general admission begins on January, 27th – with selling out last year, I wouldn’t be surprised if 2014 repeats itself.

7. Not Just a Music Festival, but an All Around Creative Experience buku 66

BUKU fuck yeah

This is a movement, a cultural defining experience, a project – where music and art lovers alike can come together and celebrate – whatever the reason may be.

Still need more reasons? Check out the 2015 initial lineup below and be on the lookout for phase two.
