Mark those calendars—Hangout Music Fest returns for its 8th running year in Gulf Shores, Alabama. The three-day festival will take place May 19-21 and brings musical acts of all genres to the warm beaches of Alabama to ring in the beginning of summer.
After partnering with mega festival leader Goldenvoice in 2015 for a joint venture, the Southern fest is now bigger than ever, with the names to back it up. The festival stretches over three main stages—The Hangout Stage, Chevrolet Stage and the Boom Boom Tent—and offers games, rides, and everyone’s favorite attraction: food.
This year, the festival brings in talent spanning from indie rock to hip-hop to alternative dance acts, and everything in between. No matter what music niche you belong in, there will be someone there you’ll want to see.
Some of the most notable acts for 2017 include Twenty One Pilots, Chance the Rapper and Mumford & Sons. One of the acts we’re most excited about is Frank Ocean, who will be performing for the first time in three years at the festival. The Head & the Heart, Young the Giant, Mac DeMarco, Band of Horses and Weezer will hold it down on the rock front, while hip hop heads can jam out to A$AP Ferg and Lil Yachty. For the electronic lovers, artists range from soothing deep house acts like Nora En Pure to big-room entertainers like DJ Snake and Marshmello.
