The multi-stage and full sensory event will happen at the state-of-the-art AT&T Stadium and take place both inside and outdoors allowing guests to move freely throughout the property. Headliners including rock chart-toppers The Killers, Top 40 crossover artist Kid Rock, 16-time Grammy award winner Sting, will be joined by classic Southern-Rock legends Lynyrd Skynyrd, and platinum-selling country music artists Little Big Town. Additional hitmakers and bucket list artists include The Avett Brothers, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Pitbull, Counting Crows, Alanis Morissette, The Black Eyed Peas, Ludacris, Flo Rida, Garbage, Andy Grammer, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Violent Femmes, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, and many more. KAABOO’s HUMOR ME stage will be headed up by Saturday Night Live cast alum Dennis Miller, Everybody Loves Raymond’s Brad Garrett, and more. A full lineup of confirmed performers is below.
KAABOO has made a name for itself not only as a top tier music festival, but as an immersive experience for all five-senses. In addition to big-name music headliners, guests will be exposed to cutting edge contemporary art exhibits at ARTWORK; hilarious household name comedians at the seated and air conditioned HUMOR ME comedy stage; enticing culinary and craft beverage offerings at PALATE; a full spectrum of INDULGENCES for which KAABOO has become famous; and the ability to purchase a cabana or day pass to BASK Day + Night Club, KAABOO’s on-site Las Vegas-style pool club. At BASK, guests will enjoy prime poolside panorama of DJ performances from internationally acclaimed DJs including Cash Cash, Chromeo (DJ Set), Le Youth, Paul Oakenfold, and more.
“We are excited to continue to grow the KAABOO brand alongside the Jones Family in one of the most incredible venues in the world,” said Jason Felts, Chief Brand and Marketing Officer for KAABOO. “We want to bring what we do best in the festival world and put a Texas-sized spin on it. You won’t find yourself sitting in seats for too long here, because you won’t want to miss a minute of the six-stage action.”
Organized in collaboration with The Jerry Jones Family, visionaries behind the legendary Dallas Cowboys, KAABOO Texas represents the first time a multi-day, nationally recognized, music and lifestyle event has ever collaborated with an NFL ownership group. KAABOO’s distinctive upscale experience pairs well with Jones’ vision for the Dallas Cowboys, which has cemented its status as the highest valued sports franchise in the world. KAABOO Texas will represent both brands’ shared energy, creativity, and willingness to elevate traditional concepts. The Cowboys organization has been on the cutting edge of creating more engaging experiences, providing new and unconventional ways to connect with fans, making the KAABOO brand an ideal partnership.
“We are thrilled to be involved in this revolutionary entertainment event,” says Charlotte Jones Anderson, Executive Vice President and Chief Brand Officer of the Dallas Cowboys Football Club. “It is the first time that our family has ever partnered with a multi-day live event in order for us to offer this market a totally unique experience. The KAABOO brand shares the same energy and innovation that we strive for with AT&T Stadium, and we couldn’t be more excited to combine the magic of sports and music right here in Texas.”
To continue the excitement for the lineup announcement, KAABOO Texas will be hosting a lineup release party tonight, Wednesday, January 16 at Halcyon Coffee Bar in Dallas, TX from 5 - 8pm CT. Media and the general public are encouraged to come, celebrate and get to know KAABOO at the event. Music will be provided by Rhett Miller of the Old 97’s, and artist Amandalynn will be live-painting a wall mural. The event is free and open to the public.
