KyXy KAABOO Wishlist: Our Friday Game plan

Here's how to hit KAABOO right!

August 27, 2019

KAABOO just dropped set times for 2019 and we are already knee-deep in game-planning. 

Here's how we would tackle the three-day festival. 


MUSIC and Comedy:

Friday, the festival kicks off with a few awesome throwbacks and several must-see newcomers! Our shortlist, in order of appearance, is:

  • REO Speedwagon on the Sunset Cliffs stage from 4:55 pm to 5:55 pm.
  • Boyz II Men on the Grandview stage from 5:10 p.m. to 6:10 p.m.
  • Tori Kelly on the Amplify Escape stage from 5:15 p.m. to 6:15 p.m.
  • Maren Morris on the Sunset Cliffs stage from 6:25 p.m. to 7:40 p.m.
  • Kevin Smith on the Humor Me stage from 6:35 p.m. to 7:35 p.m.
  • Kings of Leon headline on the Sunset Cliffs stage at 8:25 p.m. to 9:55 p.m.
    • Alternately, you could make your way to the Grandview stage to see Snoop Dogg + Wu-Tang Clan! 

Notice that some of these set times conflict with each other. Decisions are so hard! Our plan A is to hit the REO Speedwagon, then Maren Moris and end with Kings of Leon. 

So, where to first? --‍♂️-- Daily Set Times are here! It's time to plan your KAABOO weekend. #KAABOOdelmar . #KAABOO #DelMar #LiveMusic #SDMusicScene

Food and Art

KAABOO is a feast for the eyes and for the belly! Culinary chefs and contemporary artists will descend on the festival field and it might seem a little overwhelming, but there's something for everyone. 

Food ambitions: Don't let yourself get hangry in-between bands. There are a ton of food options at KAABOO, all of them extraordinary. Here's our shortlist 

We're not leaving Friday without sharing a plate of Monster Fries and Puesto tacos.

Art Inspiration:

Muralist Carly Ealy returns to KAABOO this year. She is one of our absolute favorite local artists. Her work is whimsical and often cast in moody neon.

Another favorite local artist to check out is Evgola. Her portraiture is beyond beautiful.

Sometimes one small detail can change the story... ⚓️ Added this little guy to my older piece “The Kiss” today using the tiniest brush.
