Summertime is (finally) here, and with it comes the 5th annual Hangout Music Fest in Gulf Shores, Alabama! How is it more awesome than all of the other open-air fests this season? Well, first of all, this one is ON A BEACH! But most importantly, Hangout boasts an amazing array of the best bands in the biz. The three-day extravaganza will be headlined by musical titans The Black Keys, The Killers, the newly reformed Outkast, and Jack Johnson! But we’re just getting started…
Our ears are also about to get spoiled by the sounds of Queens of the Stone Age, Wiz Khalifa, The Flaming Lips, Zedd, Childish Gambino, The Avett Brothers
and TOO MANY more! We’re also going to meet up with VH1 You Oughta Know favorites like Dawes, Gary Clark Jr., Bastille, and Fitz & The Tantrums. And that’s not even the half of it, you guys. Check the complete lineup list for more!
Can’t make it down to the south’s answer to the riviera? Don’t panic! Starting Friday and raging through Sunday night, VH1 will join forces with MTV and Palladia to live-stream performances on all four beach-side stages throughout the weekend! MTV News’ Sway Calloway and VH1’s Jim Shearer be on the front lines bringing you interviews, on-demand highlights and updates from all your favorite acts. Hopefully that will keep the FOMO to a minimum. And you won’t even risk a sunburn!
