NEW ORLEANS, LA (September 9, 2015) - After a sold-out year in 2015, BUKU Music + Art Project is set to return to New Orleans’ Mardi Gras World for its fifth annual year on March 11+12, 2016. Staged within the heart of the Warehouse District against a unique post-industrial backdrop, the annual event boasts a setting perfectly suited for the festival’s fusion of relevant EDM, hip-hop, and indie rock. Attracting an array of visitors from around the globe, BUKU blends the rich traditions of New Orleans with the progressive attitude of its attendees and has become a reflection of the creative, youthful culture that is fueling the new New Orleans.
