Lodging for KAABoo Del Mar Festival

One of San Diego County’s most whopping live entertainment extravaganzas is just around the corner, and you’re going to want to have your Autograph Collection room or suite at Hotel Republic all locked down for the proceedings.

We’re referring to the great KAABOO Del Mar rocking out at the Del Mar Racetrack & Fairgrounds from Friday, September 14th through Sunday, September 16th this year. Get excited for concerts by some of music’s household names, comedy from top-tier funnymen and women, awesome art, and a smorgasbord of fabulous eats and drinks. And it’s all just a short drive or ride north of our downtown San Diego location!

Introducing KAABOO Del Mar

KAABOO resists the whole “festival” tag, instead calling its immersive arts-and-culture vibe “a new kind of entertainment and arts experience designed around comfort, hospitality, and good times.” The idea is to offer something of an alternative to the typical music festival by appealing to all five senses, serving up world-class cuisine and contemporary art to go along with the onstage performances, and emphasizing luxurious comfort throughout—not least via the pampering indulgences of the spa and relaxation zones.

Headlining Music & Comedy at the 2018 KABOO Del Mar Festival

Some mighty big names are hitting both the music and comedy stages at KABOO Del Mar this year. Music-wise we’re talking headlining sets by the Foo Fighters, Blondie, Post Malone, Incubus, Halsey, and Gucci Mane on Friday the 14th; Imagine Dragons, N.E.R.D., Earth, Wind & Fire, Cake, Billy Idol, and Big Boi on Saturday the 15th; and Katy Perry, Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters, Alice in Chains, Wiz Khalifa, TLC, Slash, and Jewel on Sunday the 16th—plus loads of other great musicians rounding out the head-spinning bill.

And you’ll have plenty to laugh about at KABOO Del Mar courtesy of live comedy by Whitney Cummings, Judd Apatow, Kevin Nealon, Craig Ferguson, Louie Anderson, Nikki Glaser, Pauly Shore, and others.

Wining & Dining at Palate

At KABOO Del Mar, chefs, brewers, vintners, and other culinary artisans enjoy a comparable spotlight as the rock stars and comedy bigwigs. Palate provides a broad spectrum of food and drink from local and regional sources and beyond, with such notable chefs as Marc Forgione, Michelle Bernstein, and Richard Blais among the purveyors. You’ll have some truly awesome craft beers and ciders, wines, spirits, artisan coffee, and other libations at your disposal to complement the deliciously varied fare.
