It seems like every city is trying to get in on the festival game these days, so why not San Diego? Today (Feb. 23), a new multi-day musical extravaganza the Kaaboo Festival was announced and the inaugural lineup includes some of the best players from every genre, including No Doubt, Zac Brown Band and The Killers.
The first Kaaboo Festivl will take place over the weekend of Sept. 18, Rolling Stone reports, and the lineup is stacked. In addition to the headliners, the three-day festival is also slated to include: Snoop Dogg, Foster the People, Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals, Slightly Stoopid, Sheryl Crow, Spoon, AWOLNATON, Brandi Carlile, Girl Talk, OK Go, Dawes, Delta Rae, Griz and more.
Kaaboo is also set to include a round of comedy acts, including Community actor Joel McHale, Lewis Black, Tig Notaro, Jeff Garlin and more.
So, basically, there's something for everyone here.
Despite being inherently a music festival, Kaaboo's official website teases the multi-day gathering as so much more. In addition to the live music and comedy, Kaaboo is set to feature dancing, "incredible cuisine," crafts, art and "personal indulgences." Kaaboo also teases itself as being a relaxing and clean festival, the type of place that strays away from port-a-potties, little sitting room and unending heat.
Tickets for Kaaboo start at $259 for a standard "Hang Loose" package and run up to $2499 for a "Hang Ten" pass, which includes valet parking, free food and drinks and access to special lounges.
Kaaboo Festival will take place from Sept. 18 to 20 at the Del Mar Racetrack and Fairgrounds in San Diego.
