Hangout Music Festival

Hangout Music Festival 2024

MAY 17-19, 2024


A sun-soaked weekend of tunes, tan lines, and tidal vibes in Gulf Coast, Alabama.

If the beach in the Barbie movie were to come to life and be set to an eclectic soundtrack, it might look a lot like the Hangout Music Festival. Set next to the beach in Gulf Shores, Ala., it’s a festival that blends the nostalgia of roller disco, the relaxation of beach lounging and a musical lineup of both chart-topping artists and indie darlings. Big names like Zach Bryan, Lana Del Rey and ODESZA are set to headline this year, and you have the luxury of watching the mainstage from the comfort of the sand, a bubbling hot tub or, I guess, while standing — but that’s so Coachella.

While most come for the music, many stay for the other extracurriculars; punctuated by pool parties and slip ‘n slides, there’s plenty to do outside of seeing your favorite artist perform. There’s music and refreshments at the Monster Energy Beach Club, while the Psychedelic bus, a school bus converted into a groovy place to mingle, is the place to snap some photos. And Corona Beach is the perfect spot to embrace some serious Kenergy and spike a beach volleyball or just sip a beer with your toes in the sand. And for those who find love amidst the music and waves, you can tie the knot at the festival’s Wedding Chapel. Because, why not?

Bags that are clear and no larger than 12” x 6” x 12” are allowed in the venue, and all are subject to inspection. 

Is Hangout Fest 2024 ADA-accessible?

There will also be accessible viewing areas made available to ADA patrons at designated stages as well as a few ADA parking spots reserved. 

What are the lodging options? 

The festival’s website offers information and recommendations on hotels. It’s a non-camping festival; attendees should book a room and enjoy that AC in between sets — that Alabama sun can be hot in May.
