Hangout Music Festival

The Hangout Music Festival returns to Gulf Shores, Alabama this May 16-19 with over 70 acts ready to captivate and entertain audiences on the Gulf Coast. This will mark the festival’s fourth year, and the lineup is even more stacked this year with a diverse group of artists from all over the globe.

The big names from the inaugural Hangout Fest in 2010 are back this year with additional aces up their sleeves. Trey Anastasio, The Roots, Gov’t Mule and The Black Crowes are returning with big sets this year. We have the details on when and where everything is happening.

Browse and flip through bands with our YouTube and Soundcloud Playlists for the 4th Annual Hangout Music Festival. Get ready for a week of fun in the sun on the Gulf Coast with us and 30,000 other music fans.
Vicki Applewhite, Vice President, Marketing and Strategy of the Alabama Media Group said,

“The Hangout Music Fest is a tent-pole event for our audience, and the one suggestion we hear from local music fans is that a single-day pass would create more accessibility. We are happy to partner with the Brett-Robinson and the festival to make this possible. This is a chance for people to experience Gulf Shores in an exciting way, and we feel sure it will bring them back all year long.”
