I’ll go on the record to saying that Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city is my favorite album for 2012 and catching him perform in NOLA is going to be incredible.

The Buku Project is brought to you by Winter Circle Productions, Huka Entertainment (The Hangout Festival) and MCP Presents (Camp Bisco, CounterPoint, Lights All Night). Having attended these events in the past, I promise that you can expect a premiere festival experience that rivals the mega-festivals of what world. If you decide to purchase VIP, it will without question be worth the money.
Festivals are a chance to explore new cultures, experience new things and get a little weird. The rich history of New Orleans, provides the perfect environment for a music festival that’s totally unique compared to similar events on the circuit. It will be exciting to see local musicians incorporate the sounds of jazz and funk with the influences of EDM.
We all have this image of what post Katrina New Orleans is, but there’s so much more going on in this vibrant and thriving city. When you throw in the creole food, hurricane drinks, beads, the spirit of Mardi Gras and artists like….. well we’re going to have an unforgettable experience in the big easy. If you can’t tell we’re already getting excited.
