BUKU Festival Drops 2022 Lineup After Canceling Past Two Events in New Orleans
A major New Orleans festival has announced its full lineup for the March 2022 event, but some fans of the BUKU Music + Art Project are concerned that the event could be canceled for a third time. After having to pull the plug on its past two events, BUKU is taking a third shot at bringing the jams to folks in the Big Easy.
See the official announcement from @thebukuproject on Twitter below.
There are some heavy hitters in this lineup including Tame Impala, Tyler, The Creator, Alison Wonderland, Baby Keem, Glass Animals, Rezz, Trippie Redd, Lane 8, Kali Uchis, TroyBoi, and more. There are also local favorites like $uicide Boy$, SFAM, and more.
Some fans are concerned that while BUKU continues to put out incredible lineups, outside factors have caused the past two events to be canceled. Needless to say, music lovers do not want that to happen again.
Back in August, BUKU was forced to cancel their October 2021 event due to COVID conditions across the state. That was disappointing for fans to hear, as the October event was supposed to be a make-up event for the previously canceled March 2021 event.
So yes, this means that the team over at The BUKU Project are taking their third shot in-a-row at putting on a festival for their loyal fan-base. You've got to give some respect to them for continuing to work so hard on planning the event after being forced to cancel the past two.
Check out the latest COVID numbers in the state of Louisiana.
These numbers were one of the important factors considered when the team at BUKU decided to cancel their last event. Let's hope that Louisiana can keep these cases under control for the foreseeable future so that everyone can stay health and events like BUKU can go on without issue.
Clearly, fans of the festival are ecstatic to see another lineup drop for BUKU.
In my opinion, this is one of the best BUKU lineups I've seen since the inception of the event. I've gotten to go to a few of these festivals and it is definitely atop of list of favorite New Orleans events. The setting next to the river and the variety of indoor and outdoor stages makes for a unique music experience. Add in the incredible weirdness of the New Orleans music scene and it turns into a spectacle of a weekend.
Once again, kudos to the BUKU team for persevering through the past couple of years. Let's hope that things go off without any issues!
