NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Record producer and disc jockey Bassnectar returns for a second time to headline the BUKU Music + Art Project , joining R&B; artist SZA (siz-uh), indie favorites MGMT and Sylvan Esso and electronic and hip-hop producer Mura Masa for the 2018 installment of the urban music festival.

The two-day event is scheduled March 9-10 on multiple indoor and outdoor stages set against an industrial backdrop along the Mississippi River in New Orleans.

Organizers will roll out the next phase of performers after Thanksgiving and Phase 3 shortly after the New Year.

Each year, a portion of ticket proceeds support The Upbeat Academy Foundation , an educational non-profit program for New Orleans youth that teaches the technical and creative skills of hip-hop music production.
