We’re Going To Hangout On The Beach!

Hangout Music Festival is the perfect place to hang out on the beach this May 19-21st. Head to the gorgeous Gulf Shores, Alabama for an unforgettable weekend on the beach! Daniel went last year, so check out his recap here!

Hangout is a yearly beachfront escape for anyone who loves to get their groove on and party with some of the best music around! Leave your winter blues behind them and dig those toes into the sand as you kick back with your best friends for the best weekend. This is going to be a memorable getaway, with a lineup for of something for everyone. And this lineup is going to be LEG-EN-DARY.

The legendary Red Hot Chili Peppers will set the tone for those looking to get after it on the beach. Pop-punk is alive and well at Hangout with Paramore leading the way supported by Mayday Parade and The Maine, and the various sub-genres of pop-rock, indie-rock and americana are well-represented with The Backseat Lovers, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, Noah Kahan, COIN and Alabama’s own The Vegabonds.

The present and future of pop and singer-songwriting will be waiting for you too. Prepare to get lost in the hypnotic R&B of SZA who is about to drop her long-awaited new album SOS, dance your heart out at Calvin Harris and Lil Nas X, swoon over brotherly indie trio AJR and the iconic Tove Lo, and find out what all the hype is about at Ashe, Stephen Sanchez, Jessie Murph, and Sabrina Carpenter.

Hip-hop comes proper to Hangout this year, with the festival rolling out the red carpet for A$AP Mob’s FERG, Australian rapper The Kid LAROI, the fiercely independent Russ, Baton Rouge’s Kevin Gates, and reigning queen of Memphis rap, GloRilla. Grammy-winning R&B bassist Thundercat rounds out the bill with his larger than life live spectacle.

Nothing tops a dance music throwdown with all of your best friends on the beach, and this year’s Hangout lineup is fully loaded. Leading the charge is Aussie export Flume and genre-bending producer Skrillex. Electronic anthems continue with larger than life dance icons REZZ and Alison Wonderland, while chiller strains can be found at GryffinSaid The Sky, Big Wild and Two Feet. House heads can unite at John Summit, Dr. Fresch, Aluna and HoneyLuv.

With a nod to its southern roots, Hangout sprinkles in some country vibes too with Priscilla Block, MIKE., and Kidd G.
