Kaaboo to You Too
San Diego mega-festival called Kaaboo comes to Arlington stadium
A gigantic new entertainment event with a catchy name is coming to Texas. Called Kaaboo, it's a festival with a colossally long list of entertainment options that will debut at AT&T Stadium in May 2019.
Kaaboo began in San Diego in 2015 at the Del Mar Racetrack, and is celebrated as San Diego's largest multi-day live entertainment event. San Diego's 2018 version will take place September 14-16, with a lineup of acts that includes the Foo Fighters, Imagine Dragons, Katy Perry, Robert Plant, N.E.R.D., Earth Wind & Fire, Jewel, Blondie, Stone Temple Pilots, Incubus, Alice in Chains, Cake, and really just every popular rock group that is still alive.
Kaaboo Texas will be a collaboration between Kaaboo — it's a word you can never say enough times — and the Jerry Jones Family.
Kaaboo provides what a release calls "a five-star live entertainment experience," with music, comedy, contemporary art, food and drink, a Vegas-style day/nightclub, and a host of "pampering amenities."
Kaaboo Texas represents the first music/lifestyle event has partnered with an NFL ownership group. The stadium is no stranger to big events, having already hosted the 2011 Super Bowl XLV, the 2014 NCAA Final Four in men's basketball, the 2015 Academy of Country Music Awards, and WrestleMania in 2016.
Kaaboo marketing rep Jason Felts says that Kaaboo promises an unforgettable entertainment experience.
"Kaaboo Texas will be a multi-day experience with the celebratory energy of a high-stakes game and the curated music, art, and lifestyle experience representative of Kaaboo," he says. He, too, knows that one can never say the word Kaaboo enough.
Kaaboo Texas takes place May 3-5, 2019 with a full lineup announcement still to come. But this much is known, IE promised in the release:
- The music will be rock, with chart-topping hit makers, bucket-list artists, and a nod to local culture.
- The art will be cutting-edge contemporary exhibits.
- The comedians will be hilarious household names.
- The food will be enticing culinary and craft beverage offerings.
Kaaboo also just announced expansion plans for Kaaboo Cayman, taking place February 15-17 in Grand Cayman.
