KAABOO Del Mar Music & Art Festival || Day 1

There's nothing quite like a nice music festival to get you pumped up. KAABOO* is a three-day festival & it just wrapped up day one. The fest is still on a roll, but I wanted to show you some of the moments I captured. It was a hot day especially if you're sitting in the sun. With all the wonderful live music, the funky art, the hilarious comedians, & the delicious food it's hard not to enjoy yourself.

Take a look at some of the photos I shot at KAABOO Del Mar. I'll be heading out there today as well but I wanted to give you a little glimpse into what it was like. I'll add more photos & individual bands later. But here's a teaser. Hope you enjoy. :]

KAABOO  is off to a fantastic start. There were masses of people & I believe it has the ability to grow & become the next Coachella. But we'll have to see about that. I just have to say that Gwen Stefani, Tony Kanal, & No Doubt were absolutely glorious live. Gwen's voice is magnificent & she's just flawless in general. I mean look at those abs. Which photo is your favorite? :]

  23. You`re so lucky to have a chance to go to so many cool festivals. The ones in London are not that cool compared to those in the States.
