BUKU squareGearing up to hit Mardi Gras World in New Orleans, LA on March 11 and 12, the Buku Music + Art Project today made its final lineup additions for the 2016 festival.

Joining the already stacked lineup are indie darlings Purity Ring, bass music maestro Datsik, house/techno operatives Claptone and Lee Foss, and a bevy of talent to fill out the VIP-only areas including The Untz Festival's own Illenium, in addition to hip-hop wunderkinds Rae Sremmurd.

Earlier this year, it was announced Pretty Lights would be bringing along his Future Analog Band to make his headlining set a true live monster. Derek Vincent Smith has spent a great deal of time in the studio with some of NOLA's most highly-esteemed acts, especially in the jazz scene, and is working on putting together a monster performance for what is one of his few confirmed US dates for this year.

The new Front Yard area will also be devoted to collectives and fun suprises, including Chef Freedia, curated by Buku's unofficial annual iconic party-starter Big Freedia. Food, drink, music, and mayhem are always hallmarks of the BUKU's experience.

You can grab your festival passes (and secure your #TOOBUKU entry, if the VIP look is for you), by visiting www.thebukuproject.com/tickets. Climb on board.
