Back for its fourth year at the Del Mar Racetrack and Fairgrounds, September 14 – 16,   KAABOO Del Mar just released its strongest line-up to date — well, given its target of an older, more affluent North County audience. With Foo Fighters, Imagine Dragons, Katy Perry and Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters topping the bill, Halsey, Post Malone, Wiz Khalifa, N.E.R.D,  Big Boi, Incubus, Earth Wind & Fire, Alice In Chains, Billy Idol, Blondie, CAKE, Big Boi, War, Tower Of Power and The Zombies are among scores of 90s-heavy artists performing over three days.

Additionally, KAABOO also unveiled a comedy lineup topped by Craig Ferguson, Iliza Shlesinger, Nick Offerman and Craig Robinson.

“This year’s music and comedy announcement offers all of our guests a highly curated lineup that varies from the derivative mainstream festival circuit,” said KAABOO Chief Brand + Marketing Officer Jason Felts in a statement. “We are proud of KAABOO’s depth and diversity of talent which we bring to our guests each year. KAABOO offers something for everyone including a lineup of emerging bands that is always fun to see our guests discover.”

Check out the full list of musical and comedy acts below, and watch the lineup video:
