The History of Hangout Festival

Hangout Music Festival is the first and only festival of its kind.  Located in beautiful Gulf Shores, Alabama, Hangout features an eclectic musical lineup with stages located directly on white sandy beaches with ocean views. Hangout features today’s top rock ‘n roll and contemporary artists in an idyllic sun-soaked setting.  No other location allows music fans the opportunity to hear three consecutive days of their favorite bands while experiencing mind, body and spirit rejuvenation on the beach.

Shed the mud-boots and sleeping bags and wake up each morning from a fully equipped condo, many with ocean views.  Lodging options are available for every budget and many condos and hotels are accessible to the festival grounds by walking or biking.  That’s part of what makes the Hangout experience so unique.

Festival attendees can sip bushwackers ocean side, and soak up the sun on a beach blanket while cool tunes float by.  With never before seen beach and festival amenities, lodging comforts close by, pristine beaches, and world-class musicians, Hangout features the ultimate music experience for sophisticated festival fans.

Gulf Shores has quickly become THE destination location to see blockbuster concert events.  The 2010 inaugural Hangout Music Festival paved the way for the Concerts for the Coast music series that filled the summer of 2010 with performances from Jimmy Buffett & Friends, Bon Jovi, Brad Paisley, Hank Williams Jr., Gretchen Wilson and Alan Jackson.

Concerts for the Coast was created to offer much-needed economic support to the Gulf area drawing visitors from around the country and stimulating the local economy impacted by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.  Hangout and the Concerts for the Coast music series have brought over 100,000 visitors to the region and continue to greatly support local businesses.

The inaugural Hangout Beach Festival, May 14th-16th, 2010, featured Trey Anastasio, Zac Brown Band, John Legend, The Roots, Ben Harper and Relentless7, The Black Crows, Alison Kraus and Union Station, Gov’t Mule, Ray Lamontagne, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Rodrigo Y Gabriela, Matisyahu, Girl Talk, and many more.  2011 aims to be bigger and better with another stellar lineup, new activities, posh amenities and a backdrop of the most beautiful beaches in the country.
