KAABOO Del Mar successfully proved that it has shifted the festival paradigm by celebrating its 4th annual event in Del Mar, California with a sell out. The fully immersive experience not only captured a top-tier lineup of world-class musicians such as Foo Fighters, Imagine Dragons, Katy Perry, and Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters, but also offered guests an elevated weekend featuring a feast for all senses with live contemporary art installments in ARTWORK; Vegas style cabanas at BASK; culinary exhibits at PALATE; big laughs at HUMOR ME; and spa services at INDULGENCES.

Highlights include Post Malone’s tribute to the late Mac Miller; soul and funk legends Tower of Power’s celebration of their 50th anniversary; N.E.R.D frontman Pharrell Williams jumping into the crowd to start a massive dance party; and Imagine Dragon’s hommage to the LGBTQ community. KAABOO was also the closeout tour stop for several artists such as Seattle rockers Alice in Chains (who just concluded an extensive US run of dates); Halsey (who will soon be working on her new album); and pop superstar Katy Perry who just spent the last year traveling the world on her "Witness: The Tour".

“This year’s KAABOO Del Mar was our biggest event to date,” says Jason Felts, KAABOO’s Chief Brand + Marketing Officer. “We provided a feast for all senses with savory treats in PALATE, live mural paintings set against beautiful blue Southern California skies, and offered a variety of INDULGENCES from massages to grooving in the Las Vegas style BASK pool (presented by MGM Grand’s Wet Republic) with and Big Boi and Earth, Wind & Fire. Selling out this year’s KAABOO Del Mar is an exciting way to embark into our inaugural expansions with KAABOO Cayman and KAABOO Texas.

Early bird HANG LOOSE (general admission) three-day passes can be purchased for $219, and HANG FIVE (VIP) weekend passes are available for $799.
