While most music festivals reward those with extensive knowledge of alternative artists, KABOO Del Mar gears toward those who listen to artists commonly heard on the radio, and their 2018 lineup certainly does not disappoint. Held at the Del Mar Racetrack and Fairgrounds in San Diego on September 14th-16th, the festival hosts multiple forms of art with a star studded music and food lineup.
Huge names in rock will grace the fest, including Foo Fighters, Imagine Dragons, and legendary Led Zeppelin lead singer Robert Plant. Other artists performing include pop sensation Katy Perry, Jewel, Blondie, Cake, Jimmy Eat World, Robert Delong, and The Spencer Lee Band.
The comedy portion looks just as appealing as the tunes this year. Craig Ferguson is the top billed gutbuster, along with Iliza Shlesinger, Nick Offerman, and Chris Hardwick. On top of that, featured chefs of the festival include Troy Johnson, a regular face on Food Network, and Dakota Weiss.
KABOO is certainly worth making the trip for even if you don’t reside in San Diego. With plenty of hotel options like L’Auberge Del Mar and Doubletree Del Mar, there should be nothing stopping you if you want to see some of music’s top performers of current and late. Get your tickets here if you want in on the fun!
