Raise your hand if you’re making the short trek over to Gulf Shores, Ala. this weekend for the 3rd annual Hangout Music Fest? Ok, now put your hand down and start reading because the next 12 pages are so packed with Hangout Fest goodies—like artist interviews, schedules and survival tips—you aren’t going to have time to do much else before hitting the beach.
We’ve got pretty much every base covered—from what to pack and what not to pack to where to catch a shuttle to where kids can hang out at Hangout and who’s worth getting there early to see. We also talked to some pretty great bands on this year’s line-up like The String Cheese Incident, GIVERS and Coheed and Cambria.
So start reading, packing and planning your personal “must-sees.” Just don’t forget your water bottle or you’ll be sorry. “The heat in the south is no joke, baby.” See, even Big Freedia is warning you.
