Entertainment kicked off in style for the 5th Annual Hangout Music Festival on Thursday, May 15 with 3 stages and a dozen bands presented by Pizza Hut. The festival increased their attendance cap to 40,000 attendees from 35,000 the pervious year. The festival organizers closed a deal to continue the festival at the same location for an additional 5 years.

It appears that Hangout will continue to rise for sure another 5 years, but now the next set questions include: what attendance cap will they set for 2015, will their be any additional stages to help out with increasing crowd size, should the festival go +21, can the beach be open for all guests if the age limit is increased, will headlining acts start earlier to make up for the curfew, should there be late night performances, and at what point does the festival expand into two weekends?

Crescent Vale was able to be on hand once again this year to cover the event in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Last year, we were able to film Macklemore, Imagine Dragons, Wick-It the Instigator and many more. This year we focused on writing and providing textual information for the event. Additionally this year we added Theodore King as a writer, and have expanded our staff to tailor around the festival coverage. Brain Glass helped provide photographs within our coverage this year. Please go through each day and check out the action at the Hangout Music and Arts Festival.
