Location: Gulf Shores, Alabama
Dates: May 20 – 22
Commonly you do not associate guitar shredding with beachside chills, but Hangout Festival invites attendees to an experience much different than electric rock counterparts like Bonnaroo or Lollapalooza by setting up shop along the beautiful Alabama coastline. The enchanting white-sand shores off the Gulf of Mexico beautifully juxtapose the high-octane energy from groups like Foo Fighters or Foster The People. It's also one of the few festivals where the beach casual look is also functional. The performances go all day, and the sun is hot, so pace yourself because you're not going to want to miss sundown on the sand when the closing act hits the stage to turn it up to the next level.
