Hangout Music Festival
What started as a small festival at the Hangout Bar & Grill in Gulf Shores, Alabama, has flourished into one of the most anticipated Gulf Coast music festivals! Taking place at the end of May, “Hangout Fest” is unlike any other festival experience. The event features multiple genres of music: rock, hip-hop, indie, and dance. Previous headliners include The Killers, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Kendrick Lamar, and Florence and the Machine. However, Hangout is not just a music festival: art exhibits, a puppy kissing booth, and more have found their way to Hangout Fest. The festival takes place May 22-24, 2020, so reserve your spot on the sand with one of our Gulf Shores vacation rentals here! How about a stay at one of our Seawinds Condominiums?
