15 Acts You Have to See at the Inaugural KAABOO Del Mar Festival

Traditionally, the music festival experience includes overpriced bottles of water, some hotdogs, nachos and antacids. But this week’s inaugural KAABOO Del Mar festival at the Del Mar Racetrack and Fairgrounds Del Mar in San Diego, Calif., isn’t your average music festival. In fact, organizers say KAABOO isn’t a festival at all – it’s a “mix-perience” that emphasizes quality music as well as upscale food and drink options to provide a new level of comfort for attendees.

In addition to seven stages of music, there will be food selections from eight top local restaurants and chefs and drink options from 30 California wineries and craft distilleries. And if you need a break from music (or the sun), there’ll be a swimming pool, virtual wave surfing, premium cabanas and on-site masseuses and hair dressers.

But, make no mistake, you’ll want to catch at least some of the bands during the three-day event kicking off Friday (Sept. 18). The lineup includes more than 100 acts across genres with headliners No Doubt, the Zac Brown Band and the Killers. If you’re on your way to KAABOO and want to figure out when you should find your way to a stage, we’ve gathered 15 acts you absolutely should add to your schedule. And if you haven’t grabbed a pass yet, those can be found at this location.
