KAABOO Del Mar
Music, Visual Arts
Some of the biggest names in music, comedy and art will be in San Diego this weekend for KAABOO, a three-day festival at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.
It’s best to think of Kaaboo not as a music event, but as an upscale, boutique experience featuring artists Katy Perry, Imagine Dragons, Foo Fighters, Robert Plant, Jewel and many more. Even the comedy lineup is top-notch, attracting names like Judd Apatow, Craig Ferguson, Whitney Cummings, Kevin Nealon and Craig Robinson.
Kaaboo also features unique art installations, food trucks, cocktails and — this is important — clean bathrooms. Tickets are sold-out but you can livestream some of the event for free on Qello.
Details: All day Friday through Sunday. Del Mar Fairgrounds, 2260 Jimmy Durante Blvd., Del Mar. Sold out; find KAABOO details.
Trevor Noah, host of "The Daily Show," returns to San Diego for a night of standup and stories.
The South African-born comedian is known for his social commentary and biting take on politics. He recently released a book that analyzes tweets by President Trump.
For his live show, Noah discusses current events, but he also focuses on his childhood growing up under apartheid and learning to adjust to life in the United States.
Details: 8 p.m. Saturday. Viejas Arena, 5500 Canyon Crest Drive, SDSU. $39 to $85; Find tickets to Trevor Noah.
This weekend is Mexican Independence Day and there will be celebrations all over the county, including two arts-related events.
The first is a free concert at The Old Globe featuring folkloric dancing and music by the all-female mariachi group Las Colibrí. In Carlsbad, New Village Arts continues its Teatro Pueblo Nuevo Festival featuring a day of Latin music, food, crafts and theater.
