The organizers of the KAABOO Del Mar music have announced that iconic power pop band Weezer will headline their 2017 event. Eschewing the more rugged experience provided by most music outdoor fests, KAABOO is intended to give its attendees something elevated by combing performances from the very best music acts, a diverse selection of haute cuisine, a range of delicious microbrews, a variety of compelling artwork, stand-up comedy and dancing.
This year’s festival runs from Sep. 15-17 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds and the rest of its lineup will be revealed on March 23. Tickets for the 2017 KAABOO Del Mar festival can be purchased here.
An appearance at the KAABOO festival is another in Weezer’s recent career renaissance. The group’s 2016 self-titled album received widespread critical acclaim and debuted at number four on Billboard’s 200 chart. The record also earned the group their first ever nomination for a Best Rock Album Grammy Award. And best of all, frontman Rivers Cuomo told NME last April that Weezer’s next album will sound like the “Beach Boys gone bad.”
