North Texas will be rocking this weekend -- literally! Arlington is set to become the epicenter of the entertainment world as the Inaugural KAABOO Festival, Texas kicks off at AT&T Stadium.
It's a three-day music festival in and outside of the stadium May 10 to 12.
"KAABOO is an elevated music festival experience. We flipped the script on music festivals when we created KAABOO," Jason Felts with the festival explained. [[509753221,C]]
The latest news from around North Texas.
This weekend instead of dust, dirt and porta potties, festival goers will be treated to cuisine from top Dallas chefs while perusing art galleries, enjoying comedy shows and floating in a pool added just for the festival.
Musical acts include: Alanis Morissette, Lauryn Hill, The Killers, Lionel Richie, Pitbull and Ludacris.

The festival started in San Diego, but organizers saw an opportunity in North Texas.
"When we looked to expand KAABOO, we look to underserved markets and that Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex –- specifically Arlington which sits right smack-dab in the middle of it is underserved for a music festival experience and we wanted to provide that unique experience," Felts said.
Beyond the music, there is also a Vegas-style pool, culinary options and a comedy club.
