BUKU Music + Art Project is set to return to downtown New Orleans for its sixth annual year on March 10+11, 2017.  After consistently selling out, BUKU is remaining true to its intimate in-your-face nature and returning to Mardi Gras World – a gritty, industrial setting tucked within the heart of the Lower Garden District along the Mississippi River. Attracting an array of visitors from around the globe, BUKU blends urban art and pop-up street performers with relevant dance music, hip-hop, and indie rock and has become a reflection of the progressive, youthful subculture that is fueling the new New Orleans.


A specially discounted Early Bird Ticket pre-sale begins Saturday, September 10th at 11:00 AM CT.  This early bird pre-sale includes a limited allotment of General Admission, GA Plus, VIP, and TOO BUKU VIP 2-Day Passes available to the public on a first-come, first-serve basis. New for 2017, BUKU is offering a special, optional commemorative 3D Magnet available as bundle to each ticket type, which can be selected at checkout. When purchasing tickets patrons should be aware that BUKU is an 18+ event.


An addition for the 2017 festival, BUKU is now offering Payment Plans available to fans interested in purchasing Advance or Regular priced tickets (note: Payment Plans will not be available for Early Bird passes). Payment Plans will consist of two payments, with the first payment being due upon purchase and final payment due on February 10, 2017. Payment Plans will be available across GA, GA Plus, VIP, and TOO BUKU VIP ticket types, also with the option to add-on a commemorative 3D Magnet.


BUKU has announced its offerings for VIP ticketing for the 2017 event, which come with a host of special amenities and exclusive access, including the return of the fan-favorite VIP-Only S.S. BUKU – a 3-level New Orleans-style riverboat docked on the Mississippi River along the festival grounds. For out-of-towners or spring breakers, Travel Packages are also available and can be paired with any type of festival pass.
