At only 2 years old, Buku is a relatively young but up-and-coming festival. To give a scope of the size of the venue. it would only take about 5 minutes to casually walk between its two farthest points. Despite its size, there were still four music stages – each with their own flavor. The venue was constructed in and around Mardi Gras World, a storage facility and museum for Mardi Gras floats nestled on the edge of New Orleans against the Mississippi river, which is all exactly as cool as it sounds.
