The two-day festival at Mardi Gras World focuses on who's new in electronic dance music.

Deadmau5, Travis Scott, Zeds Dead, Young Thug, Zhu, Tycho, Jauz, 21 Savage and Sleigh Bells are among the artists who’ll perform at the BUKU Music and Art Project March 10 and 11 at Mardi Gras World. Last year, BUKU focused on its core constituency—the electronic dance music audience—and had its strongest year yet. This year’s lineup follows along those lines, only swerving into the rock lane for Seattle indie rock band Car Seat Headrest and New Orleans’ Caddywhompus, and into the electronic/jam/funk world for The Floozies and Opiuo. 

New Orleans will also be represented by $uicideboy$, Ambré, AF THE NAYSAYER, Boogie T, DJs MUSA, Otto, sfam, and Lleauna. Solange’s Saint Heron and the DOHM Collective will also curate local showcases.

Two-day tickets are on sale now for $189.99 with a number of VIP options on top of that for those willing to pay. No word yet about After BUKU shows.
