Don't miss one of the South's best music festivals in March!

Festival Feature: Buku Music + Art Project
The Buku Project

Festival season is upon us, and I am torn in two directions between my bank account and my festival addiction. I live in South Mississippi, and I often travel to New Orleans to go to concerts and festivals. My favorite festival that I've attended so far is Buku Music + Art Project.

The first year that I attended Buku is actually a funny story. New to the EDM scene, I wasn't sure what to expect. The only music festival that I had attended before Buku was Music Midtown in Atlanta, Georgia. Music Midtown was more "mainstream" with headliners like Iggy Azalea and Eminem. So I dressed in a black Piko top, blue jeans, and sandals with a full face of makeup and headed to Buku with my boyfriend. Ha! Looking back I roll my eyes at my attire and my expectations. That year, I got to see Zomboy, RL Grime, and Bassnectar. Unfortunately, I missed ODESZA and G-Eazy (so upset!) because I didn't listen to much of their music at the time.

Last year, I went to Buku again with my boyfriend and best friend. I was much better prepared this time and I knew most of the performers on the lineup. We saw Purity Ring (amazing!), Pretty Lights with a live band, What So Not, Yellow Claw, and Feed Me. We also went to one of the Buku Late after-parties, which was equally as amazing.

This year, I'm hoping to get a single-day pass, and I'm also going to a few of the after parties. Read below to hear about this year's Buku Music + Art Project, and purchase your tickets here.

Where? New Orleans, Louisiana - Mardi Gras World

When? March 10 - 11, 2017

Who? Top performers on the lineup include Deadmau5, Travis Scott, Zeds Dead, and ZHU. Some of my favorite artists that are performing are Slushii, The Floozies, Minnesota, and Space Jesus. View the full lineup here.

Tickets. Early bird sales have ended, but Buku still offers some of the most reasonable prices for music festivals. General admission 2-day passes go for $189.99 for a weekend pass or $99.99 for single-day passes. Buku offers several VIP packages starting at $419.99 for a weekend pass or $209.99 for single-day passes. Although Buku is not a camping festival, they still offer travel passes starting at $979.50 which includes a hotel stay.

My Experience. I have attended Buku for the past two years, and I absolutely love it. New Orleans is my favorite city and somewhere I travel to often to attend concerts and festivals. Overall, Buku will always be one of my favorite music festivals, and I don't want to miss it this year. If you're thinking about attending Buku this year, be sure to check out the after-parties that take place at Joy Theatre and Republic NOLA (my favorite music venue by far). Some of the headliners of the Buku Late afterparties include Zeds Dead, Griz, Gramatik, and Space Jesus. Heads up: if you're attending an after party, you will definitely want to get a hotel room. Last year, I was still driving home at 8:00 the next morning!

Buku also includes some very cool art displays featuring the Live Graffiti Gallery, and has some of the best food you will ever find at a music festival!

I will be posting festival features every month so be sure to comment below and let me know your favorite festival so I can check it out!

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
