KAABOO took over AT&T Stadium, the home of the Dallas Cowboys, this weekend for its KABOO Texas festival, with three days of live music and comedy performances.
KAABOO, Virgin Produced's sister company, got the party started on Friday with energetic beats from Kap Slap. Alanis Morisette rocked the crowd and Lauryn Hill celebrated the 20th anniversary of “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill”, playing nearly every song on the album. Joan Jett and Lionel Richie wowed the audience with their classics and The Killers topped off the first night with their roof-raising anthems.
Day two kicked off with the winner of the KAABOO Discovers battle of the bands competition, Dallas-based indie pop duo D and Chi. The rest of the day saw Rick Springfield, Lukas Nelson and Lynyrd Skynyrd take to the stage and Flo Rida take an impressive stage dive. Kid Rock closed the show on Saturday, playing the guitar, drums, piano and even taking to the decks during his set.
Sunday saw St Paul & The Broken Bones perform sensational soul jams. The B-52s partied down until sunset and Alabama superstars Little Big Town brought their country tunes to Texas. Sting closed out the weekend with a set that included all the hits from his 48-year career.
“Although the weekend kicked off with a little rain, that didn’t deter the energy of the event. As a multi-sensory festival experience with six stages, we delivered a little something for everyone both indoors and outdoors at AT&T Stadium," KAABOO’s partner and chief brand officer, Jason Felts, said. "Truly a first for the venue, it was an incredible three days of music, comedy, art, culinary offerings, and our signature indulgences all weekend long. We look forward to seeing everyone again next year!”
KAABOO will run its flagship event KAABOO Del Mar in September. Kings of Leon, Dave Matthews, Mumford & Sons and Duran Duran are all on the bill. Passes are on sale now at kaaboodelmar.com
