WHAT IS YOUR CHILDREN'S POLICY? +

KAABOO is an experience designed for adults. Guests, including children, may be subject to mature or adult-oriented content. Minors (under the age of 18) may only attend KAABOO with a parent or legal guardian. If a parent or legal guardian is attending KAABOO with a Minor, KAABOO strongly encourages that parent or legal guardian to exercise discretion as to what performances the Minor attends. The Minor’s parent or legal guardian is solely responsible for the decision for their Minor to attend KAABOO in whole, or in part.

We do offer a discounted Hang Loose children’s pass for kids ages 3-10. You must bring proof of age (such as a birth certificate or report card) to the event in order to use a children’s pass.

Children age 2 and under are free with a parent or guardian, but we do recommend noise-cancelling headphones for safety. We want them to be able to enjoy live music as grownups, too!

  • Pack light – If possible, leave your bags at home. It’ll get you through the security screening much more quickly.

  • Plan Ahead – You can visit What To Bring/Leave At Home (above) to find a list of prohibited items. Check it out to avoid delays and the displeasure of confiscating valued items.

  • The Buddy System – We’re a team here, and it takes people like yourself to make this epic experience happen. In the spirit of the KAABOO community, please be caring, aware, and considerate of all guests.

SAFETY + SECURITY

Sexual Assault Prevention +

KAABOO takes a stand against harassment and discrimination. We are proud to be Partners in Prevention with The Blue Bench, a Denver-based organization that aims to prevent sexual assault through prevention and care. We encourage all of our guests to join us in ensuring the safety of the whole KAABOO community.

Here is how you can join us:

  • Look out for one another
  • Offer to help someone who looks like they are in trouble
  • Ask security or a staff member for assistance if you need help
  • If you or another guest need assistance, text "KAABOO" to 313131 with your name/location to alert security

2018 SAFETY UPDATE +

As we prepare for our event in the coming weeks, our guests should feel comfort knowing that at KAABOO events, their safety and security is priority number one. During the course of the year, our team undergoes significant preparation to keep our guests safe, with security both inside and around the perimeter of our event, particularly as more challenges emerge. KAABOO has always, and will continue to use metal detector screening and bag checks, along with a thorough safety and security plan created in collaboration with local law enforcement. We are using the latest technology, a diverse security detail, and close partnerships with law enforcement to ensure this year’s KAABOO Del Mar is the safest and best yet.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW +

At KAABOO we are completely in the business of having a good time, and we can’t do that without keeping you safe. We are dedicated to creating a safe environment for guests to enjoy all KAABOO has to offer in a responsible manner.

In doing that, we work in conjunction with local law enforcement and private security companies to deploy certain security measures to ensure the safety of all guests, employees, and artists attending KAABOO. There will be adequate security, medical, and law enforcement personnel on duty throughout KAABOO to service the safety needs of our guests. If you have a safety, medical or security question, please locate the nearest security professional in order to assist you with your question.

See something, Say something –If you see anything that doesn’t feel or seem right, text KAABOO to 313131 with your concern and we’ll be sure to follow up immediately.

In the event of a serious emergency at KAABOO, all event staff, event security, police and emergency response agencies are ready and available to assist guests, including guests with disabilities. Pertinent information regarding the emergency situation and evacuation procedures will be provided over the audio systems at all stages as well as displayed on the video boards throughout KAABOO.

  • All guests will be subject to a search of their person and possessions prior to entering the stadium. All bags will be subject to inspection by a security representative. Guests should be prepared to open their bags for inspection and may be asked by a security representative to shift and possibly remove the contents.

  • For the safety of everyone at KAABOO, all persons entering the fairgrounds will walk through a metal detector or be screened with a hand- held metal detector to search for prohibited items.

  • As a precautionary measure, canine detection teams will be deployed onsite at KAABOO.

  • Guests who appear to be impaired and unmanageable will not be permitted into KAABOO. Violators of the rules of any State or City laws will be refused admission, asked to leave or ejected from the property. KAABOO reserves the right to refuse entry to anyone who may compromise the safety of other guests.

PARKING, TRANSPORTATION + LODGING

WHEN DO PARKING LOTS OPEN? +

  • 2019 parking information will be available soon

CAN I CAMP? ARE RVS ALLOWED? +

We do not offer RV parking or camping at the venue. We have partnered with several area hotels for accommodations if you decide to go that route. There are some campgrounds near KAABOO.

If you are unable to safely drive your vehicle home at the end of the evening, it may be left in the lot unattended. You cannot stay in it (this would be considered camping and we really think that hotels are much more comfortable!).

HOW CAN I RIDE TO THE FESTIVAL? +

More info coming soon!

  • Do you want a safe and secure place to store your things while you attend KAABOO? Personal lockers will be available so you can free up your hands and avoid losing any personal items during the fest.

HOW DO I UPGRADE TO VIP? +

We would love to assist you in upgrading your KAABOO experience! Please reach out to us by phone (855-798-5995) or email boxoffice@kaaboodelmar.com to get the process started.

CAN I PURCHASE A SINGLE DAY PASS? +

At this time, single day passes are not available. Single day passes may be available shortly before the event, if passes are not sold out.

WHEN ARE WRISTBANDS SHIPPING? +

Wristbands will start shipping closer to the event. If you are unsure about the status of your order feel free to give us a call (855-798-5995) or shoot us an email boxoffice@kaaboodelmar.com.

KAABOO is not responsible for any lost or stolen wristbands. A $20 replacement fee will apply for any wristbands that need to be reissued.

CAN I CHANGE MY SHIPPING ADDRESS? +

Yes you can! As long as we have not started shipping out passes you are good to give us a call and update your shipping information. Give the gals at KAABOO Ticketing a call (855-798-5995). Please make sure to have your order number handy!

I MISTYPED MY EMAIL ADDRESS OR MAILING ADDRESS, WHAT DO I DO? +

You can update your personal account information by giving KAABOO Ticketing a call at 855-798-5995. Please make sure to have your order number handy!

HOW DO I ORDER PASSES FROM OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES? +

To order passes internationally you will follow the same guidelines as normal for purchasing a ticket. All international orders will be held at Wristband Redemption and can be picked up at the box office on site. A complete schedule of box office dates and hours of operation will be available later this summer.

WHY IS “WILL CALL” NOT A SHIPPING OPTION? +

KAABOO is built around quality and comfort, so we want to give you the best possible guest experience. In order to have the shortest box office lines possible at the event, we ship out all wristbands that are placed far enough in advance. You get to bypass the box office and get straight into the fun. If you have any concerns about having your wristbands shipped vs. picking them up at will call please give us a shout to discuss. You can reach us at boxoffice@kaaboodelmar.com or 855-798-5995.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF I PURCHASE A PASS OR WRISTBANDS OFF CRAIGSLIST, STUBHUB..ETC?+

KAABOO can not provide any authentication or customer service for any passes purchased from a third party (sadly, a few bad apples ruin the bunch). The only way KAABOO can provide verification for passes is if they are purchased from the KAABOO website via Eventbrite. Please don’t buy passes from Third Parties, we hate not being able to help you. Plus, you don’t get all the awesome perks that come with being an official KAABOO guest!

CAN I GET A REFUND? WHAT ARE YOUR TERMS AND CONDITIONS? +

All KAABOO passes are non-refundable and non-exchangeable. More information regarding ticket insurance can be found here. You can read our terms and conditions here.

I ORDERED A THREE DAY OR TWO DAY PASS…DO I GET SEPARATE WRISTBANDS? +

You do not. The Three Day pass receives one non-removable, non-transferrable wristband good for all three days. If you need help or have questions, give us a shout! That’s what we are here for. You can contact us at boxoffice@kaaboodelmar.com or 855-798-5995.

And by the way, you cannot loosen a wristband once it’s been tightened. So, let’s avoid trying them on or testing it out as a new collar for your puppy (yes, it happened!).

CAN I PURCHASE PASSES AT THE VENUE? +

Currently we do not have passes for sale at the Fairgrounds. If this changes we will notify our guests via email (sign up HERE!), or just check back because we’ll change the answer here too.
