Our sunburned skin is peeling and we’ve got a mix of sand, glitter and cake (we’ll get to that) in our ears, but damnit if we don’t miss Hangout Music Fest already! Cue Boyz II Men, ya’ll, because we’re not ready to say goodbye. So don’t. Instead, let’s recap our three-day adventure in Gulf Shores, Alabama with a countdown of things we obsessed over the most at the
best only beachside event like it.
Twenty One Pilots Drum While Crowd Surfing
Twenty One Pilots had already blown the first-day Hangout crowd away with their hour-long set. The electro-rap-rock duo backfliped off a piano during “House of Gold” and ape-climbed scaffolding while performing “Holding on to You.” And if the acrobatics weren’t enough to slay the dance-crazy audience, their mid-set mash up that included R. Kelly’s “Ignition,” DJ Khaled’s “All I Do is Win” and Nelly’s “Rid Wit Me” did. But it was when the guys climbed atop the vibrating throng’s outstretched hands to bash drums at the end of “Car Radio” end that everyone really went insane.
