plan ahead

Saturday is going to be our busiest day, so please plan ahead and arrive early.

get that wristband

This is muy importante! If you have a physical ticket or a print at home ticket, you will need to come to the box office to redeem it for a wristband. You cannot access KAABOO without a wristband affixed to your wrist. The box office (At the main Fairgrounds entrance) will be open starting on September 10th from 10 am – 6pm to redeem tickets for wristbands.

INDULGENCES offers a range of beauty and spa services for both men and women. Women can get makeup reapplications before dancing to their favorite band, get a hair blow out after it gets a little frizzy being in the hot sun, or even get a much-needed manicure or polish change. To take full advantage of the lifestyle that KAABOO has created, you can even escape for a full massage or facial, and then rejoin your friends to keep the party going. There is plenty for the guys, too – stroll down the KAABOOlevard with a swagger after hair cut, fresh styling or hot shave. If you’re needing a little pick me up or hangover cure after dancing the night away in ENCORE, get your energy back with an oxygen treatment. Think of it as all of the creature-comforts that you expect from a 5-star hotel, yet still in the confines of the ultimate “MIX-perience”.

Take advantage of this totally innovative element of the experience – you can make reservations via the KAABOO app or website www.kaaboodelmar.com/the-experience/indulgences
