The video announcement for the fourth installment of the Buku Music + Art Project sees a man and woman running through the streets of New Orleans, where the festival is held. As they run, water balloons are lobbed at them, and bits of their clothing fall or are ripped off, revealing the name of the acts playing the festival written on the runners' skin. At the end, you guessed it, the two are completely naked -- the names of the headliners scrawled across their asses. Because that kinda thing may be too much for people, we've listed the acts below. For those living in this, 2014, The Year of the Booty, who are fine with it...

Here's the (slightly NSFW) Buku lineup announcement video!

Staged within the heart of New Orleans' Warehouse District, at iconic Mardi Gras World, the annual Buku Music + Art Project fuses EDM, hip-hop, and indie rock. It aims to be "a quirky boutique event that delivers a big festival punch without compromising its house-party vibe," which sits at the intersection of pop culture, rich New Orleans traditions, progressive underground street culture, and "has become a reflection of the creative, youthful movement that is fueling the new New Orleans." If that sounds like something you'd be into you can buy tickets on the Buku festival's website and, while you're there, scroll through a gallery of photos featuring past performers. Buku takes place on March 13 and 14, 2015, and tickets go on sale Friday, Dec. 19, at noon EST. Travel packages are also available on the website for out-of-towners or spring breakers.
