We heart KAABOO Del Mar! This is definitely in our top 5 festivals nationwide! The extraordinary detail and care that goes into this festival is top notch and it has to be experienced. Once you KAABOO, you want to come back every year. Their outstanding and diverse lineups every year are impressive and continue to shine through. This is why thousands of fans come from around the globe to KAABOO Del Mar. KAABOO celebrates their 5th year in Del Mar and on the heels of their expansion successes with KAABOO Cayman and the anticipated thrills of KAABOO Texas, the future of KAABOO looks brighter than ever.  Not every year is going to be perfect for any festival line-up, and artists are not always available to perform every festival. KAABOO does a pretty damn good job at making their line-ups and the experiences near perfect and look effortless. KAABOO brings the noise and the glamour they have provided in the past with the right ingredients.

Gourmet Munchies & Foodie Heaven

Speaking of ingredients, KAABOO takes their culinary contributions to the next level with celebrity chef guests, local restaurants vending throughout the grounds and a culinary stage that will entertain your palate of tastes.

Art Installations & Live Creation

This is one of the features that really makes KAABOO special and one of a kind outside other mainstream festivals. This year is no exception as there will be over 100 artists being exhibited throughout the park of the Del Mar Fairgrounds. Some art is being made throughout the weekend by the artists live and other installations are in place to be appreciated and photographed. Check out our experience at KAABOO last year here.

This five-star festival is Cannapolitan approved and is one of the highlights of the year that should not be missed. Come to KAABOO to appreciate the finer things in life: the ocean breezes, the sun, the music, the food, but most of all -the experience is priceless! Get your tickets here.

 

 

California Roots Music & Arts Festival May 24-26, 2019

Reggae bliss all weekend long! Cali Roots (for short) is one of the largest reggae festivals in the country. Their line-up this year has nothing but headlining favorites from around the globe. Several of the bands slated to perform are California natives that bring the sound that we refer to as Cali Reggae. This festival has all that a Cannapolitan would desire: great music, beautiful coastline, great food, and most importantly, a cannabis friendly environment! We really give this festival two thumbs up on their mission to be sustainable to the environment as well. Their greening initiatives and efforts should encourage other festival organizers to leave the environment even better than it was before thousands set foot on it. Concepts like their steel pint program that gives guests an opportunity to reuse their souvenir glass throughout the weekend instead of dozens of plastic cups filling the landfill. Cali Roots Fest is at the Monterey County Fairgrounds, which is just blocks from the beach. This is the festival to start off your summer and get ready for great vibes all around.  Get your tickets here.
