BUKU Music + Art Project has just announced the final lineup additions for their seventh annual festival, held March 9–10, 2018 at Mardi Gras World in downtown New Orleans. Set across five unique stages, including the backdrop of an abandoned early 20th Century power plant and a warehouse featuring the city’s iconic Mardi Gras floats, the urban two-day event fuses hip-hop and electronic acts into a forward-thinking and diverse musical lineup, along with live street art, custom-made industrial graffiti installations, and dozens of surprise “pop-up” performances.
Joining 2018 headliners Bassnectar, MGMT, SZA, and Virtual Self on this final phase roster is chart-topping Philly rapper Lil Uzi Vert, and melodic maestro Illenium, who’ll be bringing his full “Awake” production for a special live show. Other support on the phase three bill includes “vomit-step” pioneer Snails, Florida rapper Ski Mask The Slump God, Chicago rapper Noname, Dirtybird house duo Walker & Royce, and exclusive VIP b2b performances from Eprom and Mad Zach. Also big on spotlighting local NOLA talent, Buku will showcase curated by acclaimed local artist collective Pink Room Project.
Tier four tickets are on sale now, starting at $190 for GA and $275 for VIP. More information on ticketing is available here. Buku Music + Art Project is an 18+ event.
