With Deadmau5 coming off the release of his latest album, and the breaking news that Tycho has been nominated for a Grammy for Epoch, The BUKU Music + Art Project 2017 lineup is already looking pretty fearsome.
Throw in ZEDS DEAD, who are also coming off a big album release, one of the fastest rising superstars, JAUZ, and the mysterious ZHU, and you've got a high-caliber dance music lineup.
The fun factor is up, too, with Minnesota going b2b with Space Jesus, Ghastly going b2b with Herobust, Shiba San b2b Justin Jay. For good measure they've got The Floozies, Clams Casino, OPIUO, and Big Wild. The special VIP sets on the S.S. BUKU are not to be missed either, with Ekali, Ganja White Night, Chet Porter, and our ol' buddy StéLouse. This is how you stack a lineup.
Hip-hop, EDM, and a little indie rock go a long way on this blowout festival, which returns to Mardi Gras World in New Orleans, Louisiana on March 10 & 11.
Regular GA, 2-day, VIP, and TOO BUKU VIP 2-day passes will be up on Thursday (December 8 at 11am CST), and on the philanthropic front, BUKU is once again presenting a large donation to The Upbeat Academy that provides technical music training to NOLA's youth.
There is a ton more to know about this early season festival that kicks things off right in the south with plenty of funk and fun. Visit www.thebukuproject.com for more info.
