KAABOO Del Mar Announces New San Diego Location & 2020 Dates


KAABOO organizers confirmed their Southern California event will now be dubbed KAABOO San Diego and will be hosted at San Diego’s Petco Park. The first installment as part of a multi-year agreement reached between festival organizers and Petco Park residents, the San Diego Padres, will take place on September 18 – 20, 2020.

The news comes a day after the fifth annual KAABOO Del Mar finished at the nearby Del Mar Fairgrounds in Del Mar, California. KAABOO San Diego will be held at various areas inside of and surrounding Petco Park, including the playing field, Sycuan Stage at the Park, Lexus Premier Lot and the Tailgate Lot.

“As the KAABOO brand and our live event properties continue to grow and evolve, it’s imperative that we continue to deliver an unparalleled experience for our guests by holding KAABOO in a world-class venue with exceptional room for growth,” said Jason Felts, Managing Partner of KAABOO. “The location of Petco Park and its surrounding venues in downtown San Diego provides fans and artists alike the opportunity to enjoy everything that the vibrant metro area has to offer. We couldn’t be more ecstatic about this partnership and our relocation.”

“As part of the continued expansion of our concert and events lineup, we are extremely excited to welcome one of the largest and most successful festival experiences in the country, KAABOO San Diego, to Petco Park,” added Erik Greupner, Padres President of Business Operations. “Our venue and the downtown Ballpark District offer the perfect setting for an event of this magnitude and further establishes Petco Park as the premier entertainment destination in Southern California. We look forward to hosting an unforgettable and amazing weekend in the heart of downtown.”

KAABOO celebrates by offering discounted GA and VIP passes for KAABOO San Diego starting on September 15 at 6 p.m. PT via the event’s website. This year’s lineup was announced in March.
