BUKU Music + Art Project is a 2-day festival that's taking place on March 20 and 21, 2020 in New Orleans, LA. It's inspired by New Orleans' artisitic subculture, and BUKU is the "creative intersection of an underground warehouse party and major urban music festival fusing a progressive and diverse musical lineup". The lineup consists of real-time graffiti with local painters, one-of-a-kind art installations that are industrial, local cuisine, and street style performances that are pop-up.
The women in this 2 festival's line-up is: Alison Wonderland, Megan Thee Stallion, Charli XCX, Ari Lennox, CloZee, Young M.A, 100 gecs, Mija: Live, Kaash Paige, Pussy Riot, Eli & Fur, J. Worra, and TSHA...
BUKU is returning to the iconic Mardi Gras and is supporting the Upbeat Academy Foundation that is an NGO that provides opportunities to the youth of New Orleans to study hip-hop and dance music production, and a portion of ticket proceeds will benefit the local arts initiative.
