Hangout Music Festival News and Updates

The Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama is getting ready to do it again for a second time. Last year's festival turnout was somewhat of a disappointment due to the unfortunate occurance of the BP oil well blowout and subsequent oil spill. But that was then, and this is now, and no one, and I mean no one, wants to think about or discuss that fiasco. The Hangout Music Festival takes place right on the beach and is planning to put on one heck of a beach party on May 20-22.

Advanced weekend passes went on sale yesterday morning, February 2 at 9 a.m., and sold out in a matter of two hours. Plenty of passes are still available, but instead of paying $159 for them, the price is now $174. Passes may be purchased from Front Gate Tickets or at The Hangout Restaurant in Gulf Shores.

Hammock Beach is a unique new feature that offers a salt-water lagoon where festival fans can find shade and hammocks for quick afternoon nap. The Sky-bar tower on Hammock Beach provides a 360-degree view of the festival grounds. But wait! That's not all! Festival-goers will also be excited to know that this year a fifth stage will be added — a stage underneath an air-conditioned tent.

This year's lineup includes Paul Simon, Widespread Panic and the Foo Fighters to name only a few of the big name acts that will be performing at the three-day event. Go to www.hangoutmusicfest.com for more information.
