The world’s most epic beach party just got a little bit bigger. The Hangout Music Festival (May 17-19) just released another line-up of artists who will be traveling to Gulf Shores to party with the sun-kissed crowd. Singer-songwriter Ella Mai will be traveling all the way from London to the Alabama Gulf Coast. This Grammy nominated artist has won listeners with singles such as “Boo’d Up” and “Trip.” Her smooth R&B style will easily seduce the unsuspecting crowd.
The BMI Mermaid Stage specializes in bringing the modern music world’s most promising up-and-comers from across the genres. With the most recent announcement of artist additions, festival-goers will have a chance to preview some of the BMI Mermaid Stage artists before heading to Gulf Shores. For years, Hangout Fest has featured the best and brightest from the world of electropop. Shaed is one of the many bands continuing this legacy. As twin siblings Max and Spencer Ernst release waves of electrified tones and beats, lead vocalist Chelsea Lee mesmerizes with her angelic vocals. Shaed will give the crowd a live taste of its EP “Melt.”
The Band Camino will bring a mix of indie pop and alt. rock to Gulf Shores. This group is celebrating the release of its latest single “Something to Hold Onto.” Those unfamiliar with this band’s sound can expect a warm delivery of suave, poignant indie sounds.
Chika will add a fresh shot of hip-hop to the BMI Mermaid Stage. The crowd will not be able to ignore this female verbal assassin’s complex, thoughtful flow. Chika is a hip-hop artist who can skillfully adapt to any beat or rhythm with great results.
The BMI Mermaid Stage will also feature sets from Abhi the Nomad, Dreamer Boy, Powers Pleasant, Buddy, Easy Life, Jade Bird, The Interrupters, Shame, Slenderbodies and Spencer Ludwig.
Hangout Fest weekend passes are on sale now through the Hangout Fest website. Shuttle passes and lodging packages are also still available. As the festival draws closer, the possibility for a sell-out of festival and shuttle passes will be a great possibility.
