This is Flume, and he’s going to be hitting every major music festival come 2020. Add to his list of headline performances the magical Buku Music + Art Festical in New Orleans in March, but he’s just one of more than 50 dance, hip-hop and pop acts on the massive bill.
Tyler, the Creator will be there waving his fashionable freak flag. Glass Animals will cast a magic spell with psychedelic groove. Run the Jewels will start a riot, Megan Thee Stallion will give the audience twerking lessons, and Charli XCX will prove pop goes hard as hell.
As far as dance music goes, ready your body for headbanging, booty-slammin’ sets from dance-pop master Illenium, trap songstress Alison Wonderland, rowdy rhythm and bass gurus Zeds Dead, 99.9% beat king Kaytranada, your favorite house producer’s favorite producer Chris Lake, dance-metal frontiersman Kayzo and more.
On top of that two-day musical onslaught, Buku stands out among the festival crowd with unparalleled festive vibrance and scenery. It takes place on the pier where the Mardi Gras parade keeps its floats, so things are wild and colorful indeed.
Buku Music + Art Festival returns to NoLa Friday and Saturday, March 20 to 21. Tickets go on sale Friday, with a pre-sale Thursday for those who register anytime before Thursday. Check the full lineup below.
