Stellar Local Looks for Some Southern California-inspired Festival Wear

Del Mar is as vibrant as ever. Summertime continues past Labor Day with Southern California’s premier entertainment mix-experience, KAABOO. Going into its fourth year, discover world-class musical performances, hilarious comedians, delectable eats and drinks, awe-inspiring large-scale murals, Vegas-style pool parties and more.

“KAABOO is an elevated live entertainment experience which captures five senses: music, art comedy, culinary and indulgences,” says KAABOO Chief Brand and Marketing Officer Jason Felts.

After the summer Del Mar racing season is over, the fairgrounds transform into a playground with three days of live entertainment. KAABOO 2018 headliners include rockers Foo Fighters (Friday), chart-toppers Imagine Dragons (Saturday), and spunky Katy Perry and classic Robert Plant and the Sensational Shape Shifters (Sunday). The KAABOO lineup is uniquely diverse with several genres for all ages. Other artists include Halsey, Nelly, Melissa Etheridge, Slash and TLC.

KAABOO is more than just a music festival; it’s a luxury escape right off the Pacific shore at the famous Del Mar Fairgrounds. In partnership with the MGM & Wet Republic, KAABOO is the only music festival with a private pool party, BASK. Attendees can take a break and cool off at the pool and take a nap in the cabana (reservations available online) The BASK pool is right in front of the Grand View stage so you literally take a dip in the pool while rocking out to Wiz Khalifa.

Not only can you lounge by the pool, KAABOO has a true relaxation station, INDULGE. Get personally pampered with massages, hair blowouts, gentlemen’s hot shave and fun treatments like IV nutrient therapy.

Satisfy your hunger with KAABOO’S PALATE. Entice your taste buds with bites and drinks created and crafted by world-renowned and local chefs and restaurants. Featured chefs include Marc Forgione, Michelle Bernstein, Richard Blais, Brian Malarkey, Troy Johnson and many more favorites.

Laughter is the best medicine. Take a break from the sun and get some laughs at the HUMOR ME comedy club. Watch indoors (with air conditioning!) world-class comedians including Craig Robinson, Craig Ferguson, Whitney Cummings, Kevin Nealon, and Judd Apatow and friends.

One thing not to be missed is the incredible artwork.

“KAABOO has the largest exhibition of contemporary art in Southern California,” Jason says.

KAABOO style is similar SoCal style. Del Mar Lifestyle partnered with local Del Mar boutiques to find the best looks for KAABOO. Popular looks include comfy multi-colored designed pants and jumpsuits. Dress California cool: conformable meets SoCal rock ‘n’ roll by the beach, Jason says.
