A General Admission 2-Day Pass to #BUKU2018 grants you GA access to all days of the BUKU Music + Art Project taking place on Friday, March 9 and Saturday, March 10, 2018. Entry includes access to the main lineup across several unique indoor and outdoor stages, food and drink vendors including many New Orleans dishes, custom-made art installations including the live graffiti gallery, surprise pop-up performances throughout the site, and all GA areas of the festival.

*GA Single Day Passes include all of the above and are good for either Friday OR Saturday ONLY! No re-entry.

Want to get a little closer to the action, but can’t quite spring for VIP? Back by popular demand, the GA Plus pass is simply a regular GA pass with a better view. In addition to general admission access to the event, GA Plus patrons will have access to the same premium viewing areas at each of the three main stages that VIP patrons do (Power Plant, Float Den, and Ballroom stages).

Although GA Plus patrons have access to premium viewing areas at the three main stages, in order to get access to the new BUKU ROOFTOP you must purchase a VIP or VIP 21+ pass.

*GA PLUS Single Day Passes include all of the above and are good for either Friday OR Saturday ONLY! No re-entry.

Want the VIP experience at BUKU, but like to throw a few back with some friends? Then the VIP 21+ package is for you, offering all of the perks of a VIP pass plus TWO (2) open bar locations… one near the new BUKU ROOFTOP and the other in the VIP-only Back Alley.

BUKU 2018 will once again offer one of the most unique, over-the-top and affordable VIP experiences around. With time comes change, and in 2018 the SS BUKU will be retired making way for the birth of the new BUKU ROOFTOP… a multi-tier structure reminiscent of the most epic spring rooftop party complete with snacks, décor, amazing views of the main stage, and all the proper rooftop vibes.
