“What a magical weekend its been… I don’t think there’s anywhere in the Caribbean that’s ever had anything quite like this” – Richard Branson
|It’s official; this past weekend KAABOO Cayman debuted on the shores of the world famous Seven Mile Beach in Grand Cayman and made island history. The sold-out event brought together live entertainment fans from around the world while hosting one of the largest festivals of its kind to ever hit the Caribbean. Not only did KAABOO Cayman deliver a top-tier lineup of chart toppers and hit makers such as The Chainsmokers, Duran Duran, ZEDD, and Jason Derulo, but the two-day event also offered guests an elevated weekend for all “five senses under the sun” with live contemporary art installations, culinary demonstrations, top-tier comedy, and health + spa treatments.|
With KAABOO now firmly established as the Cayman Islands’ fifth-largest employer, and hotels over the weekend at capacity with helping to welcome KAABOO’s 10,000 guests per day, KAABOO Cayman has proven that a luxury destination festival in the Caribbean is achievable with thoughtful strategy and execution.
“As you look over our purpose built site, you can see we did not cut one corner in designing KAABOO here in the Cayman Islands. And I challenge anyone to find a cheese sandwich,” Jason Felts, KAABOO Partner and Chief Brand Officer conveyed to journalists over the weekend when questioned continuously about the comparisons between KAABOO Cayman and another now infamous Caribbean event. “Our transportation hub is extensive. Cayman has an international airport a few miles down the road, three hospitals, and enough accommodations to host every attendee. We have world-class partners in DART Enterprises, the Department of Tourism and the Cayman Islands Government.”
And now that KAABOO Cayman 2019 is wrapped, all sights for KAABOO are on their next debut venture, KAABOO Texas to be held at the state-of-the-art AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX. Tickets to the May 10-12, 2019 festival in partnership with the Jerry Jones Family are on sale now at kaabootexas.com.
Also on the horizon is the lineup announcement for the fifth annual KAABOO Del Mar 2019 this March. Stay tuned at kaaboodelmar.com.
