I can’t believe March is this coming week. It feels like just yesterday I was at HiJinx up in Philly dancing my way into 2022 on New Year’s Eve. But with time flying by, it just means we are getting closer and closer to the return of Hangout Music Festival after a long three-year hiatus. It is tragic that Hangout is one of the festivals that didn’t get to shine in 2021 when live events came back. Soon thousands of eager festival-goers will return to Gulf Shores to bask in both sunshine and the amazing talent booked on this year’s lineup. I for one am very excited to see Tame Impala with my feet buried in the sand, a cold beer in my hand, and surrounded by friends both old and new.
Hangout isn’t just about the music as the festival offers a variety of shenanigans to get lost in over the weekend. If you splurge on upgraded VIP you can chill in the stage side pool at the Hangout main stage. However, if you don’t want to do your bank account dirty, there are many things that come with GA tickets. You can enjoy the Monster Beach Club featuring all-day beach parties or play a round of volleyball at the Corona Beach, both of which offer an opportunity to take a dip in the ocean between sets. If you’re more of a land lover, there is a Roller Disco where you can get your skate on. Looking for a spa day to recharge? You can hit up the Tropical Spa to get a massage, hairstyling session, or even a Hydration IV treatment if that hangover is too brutal. What about getting hitched to your boo? Well, Hangout even offers a wedding chapel where you can book a ceremony right on the beach. And what better way to scope out the lay of the land than to take a ride on the festival’s Ferris wheel!
Tickets for this lovely beach weekend are selling out fast! Super VIP has officially sold out. All other tickets are still available but are on track to sell out in the next couple of months. For those still on the fence about committing the full send, get with your squad and make the decision soon. If you are looking to do one epic adventure this year to break out of the pandemic slump we all experienced, Hangout is definitely a top contender. Definitely hope to bump into you while playing in the sand this year!
