Having had the pleasure of attending in 2011 I can personally assure you that the Hangout Festival based on the beaches of Gulf Shore, Alabama is one of the more enjoyable experiences I’ve ever had at a concert. For three days in May the coastal tourist hot bed turns into an all out circus in the sand with 2013 welcoming acts like Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Kings of Leon, and an unannounced third headliner (where have we heard that one before?).
Filling out the higher spots on the Hangout poster are acts like The Shins, Trey Anastasio Band, Kendrick Lamar, Passion Pit, The Black Crowes, Bassnectar, The Roots, Bloc Party, Jim James, Ellie Goulding, Public Enemy, Dirty Projectors, The Breeders, and Best Coast.
Check out the full lineup in the video below. Tickets for Hangout 2013 go on sale February 15th.
