September 15 – 17
KAABOO is everything a typical music festival is not. Described as a new kind of arts and entertainment “mix-perience,” the event is designed around comfort, quality, and good times. This three-day sound voyage is the perfect weekend escape, uniquely curated to appeal to all five senses, with world-class music, hilarious comedy, incredible cuisine, craft libations, inspiring contemporary art and personal indulgences. A variety of contemporary public art installations will be in place when the event starts and others will be created live onsite throughout the weekend.
This year’s musical component features live entertainment from 70 artists, including well-known musicians such as P!nk, Weezer, Jason Derulo, Alanis Morissette, X Ambassadors, Andy Grammer and more. Guests can enjoy a direct stage view while relaxing at Bask, an exclusive pool party that offers cocktails, games and premium cabanas. Outdoor live music and amplified sound ends at 10pm on Friday and Saturday nights, and 9pm on Sunday, but those who wish to continue the fun can stay for Club Elevate, a late-night dance club open from 8pm to 1:30am on Friday and Saturday. This high-end, indoor dance venue will pulse with beats from world-class bands and DJs and features exotic cocktails.
Those who seek a lighthearted break from dancing can have a laugh at Humor Me, KAABOO’s indoor, air-conditioned, seated comedy club. Last year, the club featured more than 20 comedians, including Dana Carvey, Darrell Hammond, Jeff Ross, several cast members from HBO’s Silicon Valley, and many more celebrity and emerging acts.
KAABOO guests can sample local delicacies and small-batch specialties from a variety of carefully selected culinary artisans, and pair these delectable treats with dozens of limited production wines or craft libations. An upscale food plaza offers healthy, flavorful fare in a shaded area with plentiful seating. Another unique feature of KAABOO is Indulgences, the indoor fashion, spa and relaxation zone. Guests can recharge by enjoying a massage, hair blow-out or makeup consultation, among other spa services. Indulgences also offers fashion consultations and a boutique shopping experience.
KAABOO is located at Del Mar Fairgrounds at 2260 Jimmy Durante Boulevard, Del Mar. For complete lineup and tickets visit www.kaaboodelmar.com.
