Kaaboo Music Fest

Hey, Hey Babes!

Happy Hump Day! I hope you guys are having an easy week so far. I have been catching up on all the work I missed while I was prepping for and attending Kaaboo Music Fest here in Dallas! Speaking of Kaaboo lets just get this post started, I have been dying to share my experience with you all.

Kaaboo started in San Diego and has been going on there for about 5 years now I believe. Recently the festival has started branching out to new locations like Texas. Kaaboo Texas was held that the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX, a little bit outside of Dallas.

Now obviously this was Kaaboo’s first year in Texas so naturally they had a few kinks but for the most part it seemed like everything was running smoothly. If you follow me on Instagram then you know that my #1 complaint was that I was supposed to have VIP 3 day passes for the event because I was invited as an influencer to make content and really experience everything they had to offer but I was only given GA. This definitely put a little bit of a damper on the first day and kept me from being able to experience aspects of Kaaboo but what can you do? I made the most of it and still got to hear good music and hangout with my friends.

The lineup for Texas was actually really great, I got to watch some artists I have always wanted to see and you were able to get so close to the stages for pretty much all the performances. My faves from the 2 days I went were definitely Alanis Morissette, Little Big Town, and Andy Grammer! Alanis has been on my concert bucket list forever so seeing her was amazing.

While you were waiting for performers Kaaboo had some fun stuff to fill those slots of time like lounges stocked up with drinks and snacks, photobooths, an arcade, and art exhibits. I had TOO much fun playing in the arcade while I was waiting on Andy Grammer!

Since Ramadan fell during Kaaboo I couldn’t eat or drink until the evening so I DEF had food/drink FOMO for most of the day :P OH and they had these BOMB hydration stations which again, FOMO, but they had giant fan misters which felt AMAZINGGGG!

Despite the few struggles I had with Kaaboo I still had a great time in the end. i got to listen to good music, hangout with my favourite people, and get some Insta worthy shots ;) So I still count it as a win. I would love to know your thoughts if you went to Kaaboo Texas though so leave them down!
