Press Release - You’ve been to a lot of music festivals, but you’ve never been to a music festival like Hangout. The festival is as much a laidback vacation as it is a world-renowned music event. Happening Friday, May 18 through Sunday, May 20, the 2018 edition of the festival will feature headliners Kendrick Lamar, The Killers and The Chainsmokers set to perform against Gulf Shores’ iconic oceanfront.
The three-day event will also feature performances by ODESZA, Halsey, Logic, Zedd, Portugal. The Man, St. Vincent, SZA, Foster the People, and more.
Hangout Fest’s Thursday Kick-Off Party, a separately ticketed event, will be announced later along with full lineup details and ticket information.
Book a room with your buds in the surrounding Gulf Shores condos and hotels for affordable lodging that is walking distance, or a shuttle ride away, from the tunes. Forget something back at your condo, or just want to maximize hang time with your roomies? No problem. Hangout is still keeping things stress-free with wristband in-and-out privileges. See a selection of lodging options here.
Level up your vacation with VIP, Super VIP, Big Kahuna and Cabana packages for a luxury experience, unlike any other fest. With exclusive beach access, pool-side and jacuzzi-side views of the main stage, curated meals and drinks all weekend, the perks are enough to create FOMO in all those not in attendance.

The Hangout Music Fest is known for sugar white beaches, starry nights and red-hot music. The award-winning festival takes place in Gulf Shores, Alabama — just a short drive from the Pensacola, FL and Mobile, AL airports. Hangout is as much a vacation as it is a concert event. Offering more than just music, fans can take advantage of festival amenities including beach volleyball, carnival rides, Gulf-front hammocks, delicious seafood and more. It was awarded as Pollstar’s “Music Festival of the Year” in 2011, and is continuously recognized as one of the best festivals in the US. The festival infuses over $40 million into the local economy each year.
