In just one month, Gulf Shores will welcome a vibrant friendship of festival-goers to Hangout Fest 2015 (May 15-17). This year, the crowd will have the chance to be scorched by the music of Firekid, who has become a staple on the Southeastern scene with regular performances at notable venues such as Proud Larry’s (Oxford, Mississippi), 40 Watt Club (Athens, Georgia), The Earl (Atlanta) and Hal & Mal’s (Jackson, Mississippi). Now, Firekid will bring their Southern fried sounds to the Alabama Gulf Coast for a set of versatile music.
Hailing from Alabama’s music capital of Muscle Shoals, Firekid’s sound is a perfectly crafted mélange of alternative country, Southern rock, singer-songwriter and good old fashioned rock ‘n’ roll. The group’s music has something that will appeal to most tastes and can be experienced in their latest single “Magic Mountain.” Pounding drums are laced with acoustic strums and precise banjo picking. Typically, Firekid keeps it minimal by featuring just a guitar and drums.
Tickets for the festival and the Thursday night pre-party are on sale now at the Hangout Fest website, and VIP and travel packages are still available. While the pre-party is a separate, ticketed event for those with general admission passes, this event is included with VIP passes.
