KAABOO to make announcement by summer’s end

KAABOO Cayman organisers say they plan to announce the lineup and dates for their February music festival in the coming weeks.

Chief brand and marketing officer Jason Felts said unlike the first year of the festival, when the lineup was announced in May, this year the organisers decided to wait until later.

“Oftentimes festivals don’t announce that early unless it’s a new market and more ‘education’ time is needed,” Felts said in an email. “This was the case for the early announcement ahead of the February 2019 event.

“KAABOO Cayman and it’s partners will be determining the next brand announcement by end of summer,” he added. “We appreciate everyone’s patience and support and hope everyone is enjoying the summer.”

KAABOO, which now produces festivals at three sites – San Diego, Dallas and Cayman – hosts its signature event in San Diego (Del Mar) in September.

Early ticket sales for the 2020 Cayman festival were offered to 2019 concertgoers on 21 Feb., just five days after the final day of the inaugural event. Electronic payment problems resulted in a suspension of the sales and weeks of sorting out payments and adjustments on customer accounts.

There has been no mechanism to purchase 2020 tickets since then.
