The music festival KAABOO is coming to Del Mar on Friday, September 16.

 This three-day “mix-perience” showcases the musical talents of artists and bands who have given the world its soundtrack for decades.

Bryan E. Gordon, CEO of KAABOO said last year that he wanted to create a festival geared toward an older, more nostalgic crowd. 

Gordon's vision was a gamble when it debuted in 2015. But now, just two months before it's scheduled to return, the highest VIP package has already sold out. 

“I am a passionate man about KAABOO," Gordon told the Union Tribune last year, "We’ve put a lot of time, thought and attention into underwriting virtually every aspect of this, in addition to curating virtually every aspect. The only thing I’m sure of is that people are going to have a darn good time here — and leave with giant smiles on their faces.” 

 Artists such as Jimmy Buffet, Aerosmith, Goo Goo Dolls, and Cypress Hill are only a few of the performers on the long list of scheduled acts. A full list of scheduled artists can be found HERE

 KAABOO will also offer concert goers a night of dancing after dark. Dance party "Encore" will open from 10 pm to 2:30 am on Friday and Saturday.

 Some stages will feature comedians such as Dana Carvey, Darrell Hammond, and Janeane Garofalo.

 The festival is still working on the details for, food, craft cocktails and contemporary art with more information to come during summer.

KAABOO will run from Friday, Sept. 16 to Sunday Sept. 18 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. 

The Del Mar Fairgrounds are located at 2260 Jimmy Durante Blvd, Del Mar, CA 92014
