Check out 10 reasons why KAABOO festival is one of the best music festivals in the U.S.

1. Red Hot Chili Peppers, P!nk, Muse, Weezer, Andy Grammer & more

Music and memories go hand in hand. Remember that time in high school where you belted out Weezer’s “If you want to destroy my sweater” while driving to the mall with your besties? Soak in the nostalgia as you sing along with KAABOO’s incredible headliners. Prepare for many more feel-good sensations at the festival just like when you first heard Andy Grammer’s “Honey, I’m Good.”

2. Emotive hot new artists

Your thirst for new music can’t be satiated enough by radio’s relentless focus on top 40. But KAABOO’s got you. They’ve uncovered a range of underground and quirky artists just waiting for their big stage moment. KAABOO rewards your music curiosities and gives you a chance to return to your squad with insider knowledge. If you haven’t started listening to Luna Aura’s awesome downtempo, cosmic electronica, prepare yourself now.

3. Culinary delights

Music festivals were once hot dog stand and greasy pizza magnets. Not anymore. KAABOO breaks the mold and attracts actual talented chefs. If you’re a foodie or Instagram foodie follower you’ll appreciate the upscale culinary experience. KAABOO invites local and regional tastes and thoughtful wine and craft beer that will pair beautifully. Did someone say sashimi and kobe beef? Only at KAABOO.

4. Visual surprises

KAABOO attracts over 100 national and international artists to complement the music festival experience. Their installations, paintings, sculptures, photography and even jewelry encourage discovery and ignite all of your senses. Just like Elle, a Brooklyn based female graffiti artist and muralist. Or Felipe Pantone, Argentinian-Spanish artist. Their colorful and inventive wall art will excite your imagination. The mind craves surprise and as you catch your favorite musical artists, the imagery and structures surrounding you will expand your world. You’ll even witness art in the making.

5. Lots of laughs

KAABOO’s indoor comedy club gives your legs a chance to recharge and your body a whole other sensation—laughter. Rest your butt while you delight in humor. You can’t remember the last time you laughed so hard. It’s the little things.

6. Goodbye camping, hello luxury

Yes, you can attend a music festival and still have your creature comforts. KAABOO festival is right near dozens of high quality hotels and lodging options just a quick uber away.

Inside you’ll enjoy air conditioning, clean bathrooms, and a nice pause from the sun. By hosting the festival at the historic Del Mar Racetrack + Fairgrounds north of San Diego, you’ll be right beside the coastline. In fact, you can actually see the ocean from the venue.
