The BUKU Music + Art Festival is one of the coolest festivals we have ever come across, here are 17 vibrant pictures to prove it!
Set in the robust electronica scene of New Orleans, the festival is surely showing how to throw a massively fun artsy party. Headliners in past years have included Avicii, David Guetta, Wiz Khalifa, Nas, Ellie Goulding, Explosions in the Sky, Kendrick Lamar, and the Flaming Lips. The organizer, Winter Circle Productions, are known to give the spotlight to some of the most progressive artists of our time, and BUKU is testament to that. Just having completed its 5th edition, the festival is all about trying new things out!
The BUKU Music + Art project brings people together to create art. All things weird, random and quirky are welcomed here and you will find it to be one of the most fertile scenes for fresh and mind blowing talent in music and art. To define the festival by giving it a genre would be robbing it of one of its most endearing qualities. They don’t believe in labels, anyone and everyone is welcome here. And this year was absolutely on fire, with people from the farthest parts of the globe making their way to the two day annual festival to seep in some of its electric atmosphere.
Known for its drool-worthy lineups, the Project took things on another level this year by bringing in Pretty Lights, along with his Analog Future Band members, and their set was absolutely lit.
Also performing were Above and Beyond who completely blew the crowd away, Miike Snow and Canadian electronic music duo Purity Ring. On a completely unrelated topic, we have already booked our tickets for next year.
BUKU’s soul lies in the renegade artists who come from everywhere to perform and witness some of the most censor-free zones in the festival scene. Some mind blowing art can be seen here, being created right in front of your own eyes. This is one of the reasons BUKU Music + Art Project is changing the festival scope, one loony graffiti at a time.
If anything really makes BUKU one of the best festivals that you should definitely attending, it would be the people. The two day annual festival attracts some of the coolest souls from around the world, owing to its chilled out vibe. You have a chance to meet some of the most interesting people, while indulging in some of the best electronic music.
If there is one thing about the festival we have to complain about it, it would be very short duration. Such celebration of the music and arts deserves a much longer timeline and here’s hoping they bring us much more next year!
