KAABOO, the big arts and entertainment festival, returns to the Del Mar Fairgrounds this weekend, and the lineup is, I must say, pretty impressive.

More than 60 bands in all will take the stage over three days, including Jimmy Buffett, Aerosmith, Jack Johnson, Fall Out Boy, Lenny Kravitz, the Chainsmokers and more.

The event organizers promise “plenty of shade and seating, all restrooms are clean with flushable toilets (no porta-potties), and there is no dirt, dust or mud to fight through just to have a good time.”

Many classes of passes have already sold out, unfortunately, but there are still a limited number of others available, starting at $119 for day passes; you can view the complete list here.
