BUKU Music + Arts Project postponed until Labor Day Weekend
Akin to fellow festival circuit staples, New Orleans’ BUKU Music + Arts Project has been postponed in a preemptive effort to prevent further spread of the coronavirus. On March 12, festival organizers announced via Twitter that the Mayor of New Orleans had informed them that they could no longer host BUKU from March 20 – 21 as planned.
Although the compulsory cancellation of the event’s original dates is “a tough pill to swallow” for BUKU organizers and aspiring attendees alike, the festival’s organizers hope that 2020 iteration will nevertheless come to fruition later this year during Labor Day Weekend. Tyler, The Creator, Flume, and Illenium are slated as headlining acts and will be joined by a genre-spanning array of additional artists including Alison Wonderland, Chris Lake, Zeds Dead, Megan Thee Stallion, Run The Jewels, and JPEGMAFIA, among others.
Current ticket purchases will be honored for the rescheduled September dates. Those who are unable to attend BUKU’s holiday weekend installment will receive instructions on how to obtain a refund during the week of March 16. Ticket sales to BUKU 2020 will soon resume on the festival’s official website.
