BUKU is so much more than music. BUKU has become a celebration of the creative, funky subculture of New Orleans. With the goal of creating a head-spinning immersive experience, the BUKulture curators handpick dozens of authentic street performers, musicians, artists, interactive exhibits and other awe-inspiring “special moments” and deliver them at the festival in an unscheduled “pop-up” fashion. So put your phone down, keep your chin up, and be ready to experience BUKulture!


:: A note from the BUKU Art Curator ::

BUKU was born in the dirty docks of the Mississippi and resides in its forgotten industry. Art emerges of its own accord, inspired by the festival’s post-industrial setting and the vibrant street culture found in the city in which it resides. BUKU is no Art Gallery, it is an Art Project, its landscape in a constant state of change. Through innovation and adaptation the site has been revived, featuring local favorites like Fort BUKU and the ever growing Live Graffiti Gallery, along with new additions that seek to bring avant-garde art with a heavy industrial focus, creating a functional and interactive playgrounds for everyone to participate, relax, and get #TOOBUKU.
