KAABOO Del Mar is a three-day “mix-perience” providing the perfect weekend escape in sunny Southern California. This fully immersive festival experience, now in their fourth year, works hard to separate itself from the rough qualities of a traditional outdoor event. KAABOO Del Mar combines a diverse mix of top-tier music, high-quality culinary offerings, the very best craft libations, visually inspiring art exhibitions, comedy shows, dancing and indulgent amenities.
KAABOO is located at the historic Del Mar Racetrack + Fairgrounds, just north of San Diego on the Southern California coast.
Taking place in 2018 from September 14 to 16, KAABOO Del Mar will feature headlining performances from Foo Fighters, Imagine Dragons, Katy Perry, Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters and many more incredible acts!
The diverse lineup is designed to appeal to many tastes. The previous KAABOO festivals featured Rock & Roll Hall of Famers, classic rockers, modern pop and rock stars, reggae legends and upcoming new talent. This year is no exception and we are particularly excited about:
Friday: Foo Fighters, Incubus, Blondie, Tower of Power, The Zombies
Saturday: Imagine Dragons, Earth, Wind & Fire, Stone Temple Pilots, Melissa Etheridge, The Wailers
Sunday: Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters, Slash Featuring Miles Kennedy & the Conspirators, Alice in Chains, War, Elvin Bishop
