This September the music festival Kaaboo Del Mar will be coming to San Diego, featuring big-name artists in music, comedy and art.
According to its website, Kaaboo is not a festival, it’s a “new kind of entertainment and arts experience designed around comfort, hospitality and good times.”
For those who are able to go, the Kaaboo festival offers an immersive escape for patrons who want to listen to their favorite musicians or comedians, get lost in art and eat good food.
“Kaaboo was created by music lovers for music lovers,” the Kaaboo website states.
Kaaboo features musicians from different genres like Pop, Rock and EDM. This year’s line up for music will include musicians such as Duran Duran, The Cult, Kings of Leon, and Sublime With Rome.
For some, Kaaboo is about going and being able to experience many fun an exciting bands and having a good time with good vibes. For others, it’s about laughing so hard at the comedians that your sides start to hurt.
The comedy event will feature comedians like Bob Saget, Jen Kirkman, and Wayne Brady.
The festival even offers an art gallery where patrons can walk around and see murals and art installations. The art galleries will feature works from Alla Tsank, Ariel Gold, Carly Ealey and Chime.
Tickets for the festival can be pricey, ranging from $159 all the way up to $3,999 depending on how many days you choose to attend, and if you want to go with the VIP option.
While the festival offers student and military discounts, some college students still find it hard to go to big events like this.
“I’ve always heard about it but being a broke college student makes it difficult to do anything,” Palomar College student Kristen Can said.
The festival will be held Friday, Sept. 13 from 2 p.m. to 12 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 14 from 1 p.m. to 12 a.m. and Sunday, Sept. 15 from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. The festival will be located at the Del Mar Fairgrounds and Racetrack.
The Kaaboo website suggests bringing small bags, blankets, and sunscreen since most of the festival will be outside.
