The Buku Music + Art Project in New Orleans has added some pretty fantastic acts to an already stellar lineup. Most notably, Nas will be performing Illmatic in its entirety in honor of the monumental CD’s 20th anniversary. Other additions to the highly eclectic lineup include Sleigh Bells, Chance the Rapper, Carnage, and GRiZ. From historic, game-changing rappers to newer, buzz-worthy bands, this festival has something special goin’ on. Combine that with the fact that it is held in New Orleans and you’ve got the recipe for guaranteed fun.
VIP guests will be treated to some pretty wild perks, such as a twerk lesson with Big Freedia (sign me up!), a cook-off competition, and a brass ensemble from the legendary Preservation Hall. More information on VIP pricing and amenities can be found here.
The festival also boasts distinguishable features such as interactive visual art installations, local food and craft vendors, and a unique, quirky vibe that “combines a powerhouse music festival with an underground dance-party.” We all know there ain’t no party like a NOLA party, and Buku promises to take it to another level!
