The Chainsmokers, who co-headlined the 2016 edition of the KAABOO Del Mar Festival just north of San Diego, will top the bill for the debut edition of KAABOO Cayman.

The new festival, which takes place Feb. 15-16, will be held on Grand Cayman’s Seven Mile Beach in the Caribbean.

Among the co-headliners for KAABOO Cayman are Duran Duran, Zedd and Bryan Adams. The lineup also features a number of acts who have previously performed at KAABOO Del Mar, including Jason Derulo, Counting Crows, Flo Rida, Los Lobos and Live, as well as the pioneering female hip-hop group Salt-N-Pepa, who on Saturday headline the 21-and-up San Diego Taco Fest at Waterfront Park.

Also set to perform at KAABOO Cayman are Blondie, Marren Morris and comedians Wanda Sykes and David Spade. The full lineup appears below.

Early Bird two-day discounted passes for the festival went on sale in February, before any performers were announced.

Advance two-day passes go on sale today (May 15) at 5:30 a.m. at Prices range from $300 for a two-day general-admission Thatch pass to $15,000 for an Ultimate Hang VIP pass.

There is one other option, at least for those for whom money is absolutely no object: a three-day Dream Pass, which costs $500,000 for four people. It includes a Grand Cayman villa staffed with a chef and butler, a private viewing area for KAABOO Cayman’s two stages, priority meet-and-greets with the festival’s performers, unlimited food and drink, use of a yacht and round-trip transportation.
