BUKU Project Announces 2014 Dates, Advance Tickets On-Sale Tomorrow

UPDATE: the lineup for BUKU 2014 was just announced.

The Big Easy’s BUKU Music & Art Project, now entering it’s third year, is expected to once again up the ante on both audio and visual offerings for the 2014 edition and festival organizers have just announced dates for this year’s event. What started as a most EDM and hip-hop focused affair in 2012 (with headliners like Skrillex and Avicii – recap/photos) branched out in 2013 to a more eclectic affair in 2013 (the festival more than doubled its attendance and sold out in year two). The BUKU Music + Art Project is set to return to New Orleans’ Mardi Gras World on March 21+22, 2014. A lineup announcement should come in the next month or two and we’ll be updating on any developments that come through the pipeline here and on @LMBNOLA. Continue below for ticketing information.
