With the current state of the live-events world in the midst of a pandemic, the festival is making a tough decision to forego their 2021 festival. According to the post, the festival plans on celebrating its 10-year anniversary in March of 2022.
Disappointing news for festival lovers across the South, as "Buku-Fest" is known as one of the most unique and immersive annual festivals around. The good news is that they still plan on hosting an event come October 2021, so be on the look out for that information.
I have attended "Buku" a few times and it has always been a great experience. My hopes is that all festivals can make some version of a come-back next Summer.
Until then we will have to live vicariously through our past festival memories, DJ live-streams, and anything else that will give us an inkling of feeling that a music festival provides.
