This weekend, world-class music festival KAABOO finally takes over Seven Mile Beach. 

If you haven’t purchased your passes yet, there’s still time to do so via the KAABOO website; remember, you won’t be able to buy tickets at the gate.  

With thousands of guests expected to attend, you’re guaranteed to encounter some lines at the entrance. For the fastest entrance process possible, and of course, for safety, you’ll need to follow the festival guidelines on prohibited items.  

Here’s what you should pack, and what to leave at home when you attend KAABOO.  


Eco-friendly sunscreen  

At KAABOO, you’ll be outdoors for several hours each day, so it’s important to protect your skin. Opt for a sunscreen of a 30 SPF minimum and be sure to select a brand that won’t harm the environment if you choose to take a dip in the ocean.   

A blanket or towel  

There will be limited seating at KAABOO; bring a blanket or beach towel to sit on if you need to rest your legs during the day.  

Empty water bottle 

Quench your thirst at one of the festival’s hydration stations. Ditch the plastic by bringing a reusable water bottle with you, but make sure it’s empty; filled water bottles will not be allowed into the venue. Breakable glass containers are also prohibited, so be sure that your bottle is made from aluminum or another sustainable (and safe) material.  

Go Pro 

When you’re so close to your favourite musicians, you’ll want to take good quality photos. Professional camera equipment should be left at home, but you can bring along a go-pro (without extensions or poles) for great action shots.  


  • Large bags over 18” x 12” x 8.”
  • Professional camera equipment.
  • Glass containers.
  • Drugs.
  • Weapons.
  • Noisemakers or signs.
  • Selfie-sticks/pole-extenders.
  • Outside food and beverages.
  • Umbrellas.
  • Glow sticks, yard games, inflatables.
  • Smoking (no cigarettes or vaping devices).

Enhance your KAABOO experience by carrying suggested items, and ensure that you are compliant with festival rules by leaving prohibited objects at home.
