Bringing The Noise: Buku Music + Art Project
Here at Just Noise To Me we are excited to be traveling to perpetual party-hub, New Orleans, to attend Buku Music and Art Project. Held at Blaine Kern’s Mardi Gras World in the heart of downtown New Orleans, Buku embraces the vivacious and culturally diverse city while enveloping eager attendees in the unique and enchanting experience through music, art, and food. Plus this isn’t your average venue. Buku’s one of a kind location on the Mississippi River, not to mention, a short walk away from the French Quarter, is sure to make for an out-of-bounds festival weekend.
The festival is a network of various stages and interactive attractions, along the river. Featuring unconventional stage setups, Buku will be delivering vibes at all corners, with one stage located in a Mardi Gras float manufacturing warehouse and one on a docked riverboat. In it’s third year, Buku presents its best lineup yet with a vast range of artists and genres making it the festival for anyone and everyone.
From The Flaming Lips to UK dubstep pioneer Skream, Zeds Dead to Chance the Rapper and so many other different artists in between, it’s hard to believe Buku packs this incredibly loaded lineup into just two days on only five stages.

Genre-blurring acts across a wide soundscape marks this festival’s lineup with a caliber of diversity that is hard to recreate. Veteran hip-hop trend setter Nas is slated to deliver a soulful homage to rap’s roots, while Colorado’s favorite son Paper Diamond, will surely bring his distinct blend of trap-inspired electro to the mix.
