NOLA-based Buku 2015 music fest lineup released
NEW ORLEANS - Urban radio hit-maker A$AP Rocky and national electronic music stars Passion Pit, Bassnectar and Porter Robinson are scheduled to take the stage in New Orleans for the Buku music festival in March.
The fourth annual Buku Music + Art Project lineup was announced Tuesday.
Also on the roster is Louisiana native Torence Hatch, the rapper who went by the name Lil Boosie until changing it to Boosie Badazz after being released from prison this year on a 2009 drug conviction. Buku will be his first major post-prison performance in New Orleans, where he has a strong fan base.
More than 30 acts are slated to perform at Mardi Gras World March 13-14.
