The KAABOO Del Mar 2018 lineup is here — and the San Diego-area festival continues to provide one of the most unique lineups of any music festival out there.
Headlining the fourth-year festival are the Foo Fighters, Katy Perry, Imagine Dragons, and Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters. This is the first festival in America that pop star Perry has headlined, a pretty good coup for the festival that takes place in Del Mar, California.
The festival features a slew of acts whose heydays were in the early-aughts or before but are still chugging along. Among those acts are N.E.R.D., Incubus, Earth, Wind & Fire, Slash of Guns N Roses (featuring Miles Kennedy and The Corporation), Alice in Chains, Billy Idol, Jewel, Blondie, Jimmy Eat World, CAKE, Nelly, Melissa Etheridge, Stone Temple Pilots, TLC, Better Than Ezra, The Wailers, Everclear, Soul Asylum, The Zombies, Candlebox, and Vanessa Carlton. These acts certainly hit a sweet spot for the boujie Del Mar winos.
There’s also a number of acts that cater to the Del Mar winos’ kids, like Halsey, Post Malone, Wiz Khalifa, Gucci Mane, and Bebe Rexha.
The festival also featured a comedy element, this year booking Craig Ferguson, Iliza Shlesinger, Nick Offerman, Craig Robinson, Whitney Cummings, Pete Holmes, and more.
