Bassnectar, MGMT, SZA Included In BUKU 2018 Music + Art Project Music Lineup

On March 9-10, the event offering a “big festival punch with and underground house-party vibe” returns, bringing with it live street art, one-of-a-kind industrial art installations, local food vendors, and dozens of surprise “pop-up” performances. After announcing its dates for next year’s festival last month, organizers have today (November 7) shared the BUKU 2018 Music + Art Project music lineup.

Bassnectar, MGMT and SZA will headline next year’s festival and will be joined by Alison Wonderland, Isaiah Rashad, Borgore, Sylvan Esso, Flatbush Zombies, Mura Masa, Bishop Briggs, Hippie Sabotage, Smino, Honey Dijon, Soulection, and more. For the full line-up, click here.

A limited amount of discounted Tier 1 2-day are still available. There will also be General Admission, GA Plus, VIP 21+, VIP and TOO BUKU VIP ticket options for the 18+ event. Eager to make the concert-going experience as accessible as possible, BUKU will offer payment plans to fans upon checkout. BUKU 2018 takes place at 1400 Port of New Orleans Place. New for 2018, the BUKU ROOFTOP will replace the S.S. BUKU riverboat. The multi-tiered structure and VIP-only space will continue to offer special amenities such as prime viewing of the main stage, seating and an open bar for guests 21+. Details for the VIP-only artist performances will be announced soon as well as other enhancements to the overall BUKU 2018 on-site experience.
