BUKU Music & Art Project has revealed the lineup for BUKU: Planet B, a one-time-only fall take on the springtime New Orleans electronic/hip-hop festival set to take place on October 22nd and 23rd, 2021.
Planet B offers up an alternative way to dance through the rabbit-hole of BUKU on the banks of the Big Easy. Aiming to celebrate the resiliency of New Orleans and the triumphant return of live music, Planet B is intentionally smaller in size than the usual BUKU festivities but retains the event’s multi-genre ethos, welcoming over 50 acts to its creative playground in October 2021.
BUKU: Planet B welcomes a lineup that spans genre and style. Topping the bill are some of modern music’s biggest stars like powerhouse hip-hop icon Megan Thee Stallion, melodic bass music’s ultimate champion ILLENIUM, pop-punk vocalist Machine Gun Kelly, experimental rapper Playboi Carti, and Memphis rap chart-topper Pooh Shiesty.
Dance music will also take center stage at BUKU: Planet B with the eclectic producers Kaytranada and Jamie xx, Australian dance music producer and vocalist Alison Wonderland, and bass giants Zeds Dead, Subtronics, and SVDDEN DEATH: VOYD. Adding to the diverse vibe, Chris Lake and Purple Disco Machine will also treat the “BUKREWE” to a set of house heaters.
“For the past year, we’ve watched our fans step outside of their comfort zones and persevere through weird times,” said Dante DiPasquale, BUKU’s co-creator. “PLANET B is the result of us being inspired by them to do the same, and all of us at Team BUKU are excited to finally party with them again.”
Set against the uniquely New Orleans backdrop of the haunting Market Street Power Plant and the historic grounds of the old TwiRoPa venue, Planet B aims to harness the chaos of the last year and release it in the form of raw creativity.
Pre-sale tickets for Planet B begin on Thursday, June 10th at 10:00 a.m. CT. Register for pre-sale access here. General on-sale will begin on Monday, June 14th at 10:00 a.m.
