Buku Music & Arts Project Attendee Quotes

Everyone had a rockin’ time. Here’s some humans we spoke to about their BUKU experience, as expected, they were in love with it! Hear it from the ladies of Party With Respectable Women themselves…


“This was my 6th Buku and I really liked the expansion and found they were able to keep the authentic Buku vibe there despite expanding. BUKU 2013 was my first fest and Nola is my hometown so I have a special place for this fest in my heart. I also took my graduation photos at BUKU!”

  • Caliana, New Orleans


“I went to BUKU for the first time this year not really knowing what to expect. But damn, did I love the wharf stage. It always felt like you could get a good spot and having the crates protected the sound plus the breeze by the water was so nice. Got right up front for Bonobo and it was just delightful.”


  • Grace , Massachusetts


“It was my 1st BUKU and my 1st time in NOLA! The whole festival was mind blowing but my favorite memory was being able to see illenium on the main stage with the love of my life. He performed all of my favorite songs and being able to hear his version of 'Don't Let me Down' made my entire night.”

“I went to BUKU 14-18 and it never disappoints for me! The expansion this year made it so much better! Somehow I wish they could use all of the float den instead of half, but I do understand there’s no other place for the floats to go.”

  • Kelli , Florida


“Went to Buku for my first time this year! I was truly amazed by the vibes throughout the entire festival. Never once did I have an uneasy feeling about my surroundings and I never felt unsafe. My most memorable experience of the whole trip was learning more about myself and making new friends. Everyone was so kind! Oh, and the food was on point, I had the sausage and chicken jambalaya.”


  • Britnee , Texas

“The whole thing was amazing!!! But specifically I loved the surroundings of the venue. Sitting by a river watching the sunset and boats float by was so amazing and peaceful and it was really cool to just sit by the river and meet new friends in between shows. I loved that there was inside and outside venues. That was awesome. There were enough water stations spread out for everyone and I had a really great time. I love that place.”

“The diversity in music was awesome. ADTR may have been my favorite. Very nostalgic”

  • Ali , Atlanta
