California's three-day rock experience - KAABOO Del Mar - has officially dropped its highly-anticipated 2019 music and comedy lineups. The fifth annual event happening September 13th-15th at Del Mar Racetrack and Fairgrounds overlooks the Pacific Ocean in the beautiful beachfront community of Del Mar.
Nashville rock veterans Kings of Leon will top the bill on Friday, Sept. 13, live music icons Dave Matthews Band on Saturday, Sept. 14, and British folk-rock mega stars Mumford & Sons will headline Sunday, Sept. 15. They will be joined by a lineup of cross-genre hit-makers including Duran Duran, Black Eyed Peas, Maren Morris, Sheryl Crow, Mark Ronson, The Revivalists, REO Speedwagon, The Bangles, The Cult, Sublime w/Rome, Squeeze, The Cult, Silversun Pickups, Boyz II Men, and unique collaboration between Snoop Dogg and Wu-Tang Clan in celebration of the latter’s 25th anniversary.
Also on the bill are OneRepublic, Lifehouse, Blind Melon, Plain White T’s, Cheat Codes, Switchfoot, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderneess, Des Rocs, Con Brio, Mix Master Mike (of the Beastie Boys), and an exceptional performance from the yet-to-be-announced winner of this year’s American Idol.
KAABOO will also present a full slate of nationally recognized comedians like Pete Holmes & Friends, Bert Kreischer, Wayne Brady, Kevin Smith, Bob Saget, Jimmy O. Yang, Tig Notaro, Tom Green, Cameron Esposito, and more will lead the laughs, hosted by MK Paulsen on the HUMOR ME stage. The complete lineup and ticket information appear below.
KAABOO Partner and Chief Brand Officer Jason Felts said, “It is thrilling to unveil this all-star lineup for what will essentially become KAABOO’s 5th birthday celebration. Our signature curation of music and comedy acts will lead guests through yet another incredible weekend escape in Del Mar.”
The San Diego area's most prominent music, entertainment, and arts extravaganza continue to build momentum on the success of the last four multi-generational and diverse events. Already established as an upscale curated "mixperience" in the live event sector (selling out of all passes to last year’s 2018 Southern California experience), the all-ages “music lovers escape” indulges all the senses with a variety of onsite experiences designed around comfort, quality and exceptional times. In addition to its notable world-class live music performances and household names in comedy, KAABOO features exciting contemporary art exhibits, gourmet cuisine and cooking demonstrations by today’s culinary stars, craft libations, plus personal indulgences, and much more.
KAABOO captures the heart of San Diego, appealing to the locals and tourists alike. For those from out of town, there are plenty of hotel accommodations around the area, and well-thought-out public transportation options to get to the venue, including ride sharing.
