DEL MAR, Calif. - The Foo Fighters, Imagine Dragons and Katy Perry will headline this summer's Kaaboo Del Mar music festival at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, it was announced Thursday.

General admission and VIP passes for the three-day event were set to go on sale at 9 Thursday morning.

This year's music, comedy, art and food festival will run from Friday, Sept. 14 until Sunday, Sept. 16. Organizers have positioned Kaaboo as a more luxurious event than most music festivals, featuring comfortable seating, art, world-class cuisine and high-quality beverages.

"Kaaboo is everything a typical music festival is not," organizers say on the event's website. "(It's) an adult escape, uniquely curated to appeal to all five of your senses, with world-class music, hilarious comedy, incredible cuisine, craft libations, inspiring contemporary art, and personal indulgences."

Other bands and musical acts slated to perform include Robert Plant & the Sensational Shape Shifters, Halsey, Post Malone, Whiz Kalifa, N.E.R.D., Incubus, Earth, Wind & Fire, Gucci Mane, Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, Alice in Chains, Billy Idol, Jewel, Blondie, Jimmy Eat World, Cake, Nelly, Big Boi, Melissa Ethridge, the Stone Temple Pilots and TLC.

Former "Late Late Show" host Craig Ferguson headlines Kaaboo's comedy acts. He'll be joined by Iliza Shlesinger, Nick Offerman, Craig Robinson, Chris Hardwick, Whitney Cummings, Kevin Nealon, Pete Holmes, Nikki Glaser and Pauly Shore, among others.

The art and culinary lineups have not yet been released. Passes were set to go on sale at 9 a.m.
