If you haven’t been to San Diego’s newest music festival but have ever desired to see Logic, Muse and P!nk in the same day – this is the festival for you. Having gone to this festival for the second time of its three-year existence, I can truly say it is only getting bigger and better.
The festival focuses more on representing a festival lifestyle rather than just the bare bones of music. There are more than 50 gourmet food booths, personal massages, surf lessons, a Vegas Style day club and so many more luxurious amenities. This wide range of services pulls in a very diverse crowd ranging from toddlers to senior citizens who all migrate out to the coast for a three-day weekend of music, art exhibits, and quality booze.
There are three comedians performing each day in the Aces Comedy club including David Spade, Patton Oswalt and Norm Macdonald. This is the first year that KaaBoo has offered LaughPass distribution which equates to a Disneyland FastPass that can be acquired at either the 1:30 distribution or 3:30. They also have six renowned chefs doing live exhibitions at the Palate stage throughout the weekend for those looking to add a few more tricks to their cooking repertoire.
On the masculine side of luxuries, they offer over 40 varieties of cigars at a booth near the Pub n’ Play area. Keeping in the men’s luxuries, Annie Lush of J. Hilburn Menswear is offering personal men’s style consultations and fittings. For the more feminine palate, they provide hair styling and makeup at the Paul Mitchell the School San Diego booth for ten dollars per service. The Cake and Punch booth makes personal flower crowns for twenty-five dollars with the option to add in LED lights for an extra ten dollars.
They have a wide variety of food options ranging from Acai Bowls to Greek cuisine to a Mac-n-cheese bar. There are many vegan and gluten free options and the booklet displays a color coded key to these booths. My personal favorite was The Big Cheese which sells a variety of sandwiches that give a back seat to the meat, letting the multiple kinds of cheese be the true star.
Overall, I would recommend KaaBoo music festival to most people in my life because it truly does offer something for everybody.
The Red Hot Chili peppers, Logic and Muse all put on an amazing and visual live show so if you have the chance to see them, take it.
