Thank you to everyone who joined us for an incredible KAABOO 2016. With the memories still fresh in our hearts, we have so much to look forward to. We are already back at it – planning your ultimate weekend escape for next year. We hope you’ll be there with us September 15-17, 2017.

This year we not only have memories to attest to a stunningly successful KAABOO, but we’ve got the numbers to back it up.

While it’s still early in our planning process, here are some of the anticipated changes that you can expect come 2017:

Re-location of some venues

When we release the site map in a few months, you’ll see that we’ve repositioned some of the experiences and stages to improve accessibility to and from those areas to better cater to your tastes and inclinations.

Re-engineered traffic flow

We are working with a leading consulting firm in North Carolina to improve traffic flow around the venue. This firm’s process includes a detailed modeling of anticipated traffic flows based on the revised site map and last year’s data to eliminate any bottle-neck spots.

Security + public safety

We have hired a new director of security with large venue experience, including two NFL stadiums. Our main priority is keeping you safe, and we will continue to work with law enforcement, the Del Mar Fairgrounds public safety staff and our security team to enforce event rules and make guests feel safe.

Parking and traffic

We are looking at several options to mitigate traffic jams and provide an organized and safe entrance/exit from the parking lots with a better defined traffic flow and additional training for our parking attendants. We are also going to have a much larger center for ride-share pick up and drop off on-site.

Pee-KAABOO (Flushing Restrooms)

We will continue to uphold our commitment to our guests with all flushing toilets. Next year, we will have additional restrooms, including a more centralized restroom area for added convenience. We will also be increasing the janitorial staff to ensure that they remain stocked, clean and comfortable for your use.

Bar Access

We will be adding additional ID Checks, bars, and bartenders in both HANG LOOSE and AMPLIFY (HANG FIVE/HANG TEN) areas next year.

We can’t wait to host you again. See you at KAABOO 2017!
