Hangout Fest kicks off weekend with Thursday night pre- party.

For those of you looking to get your weekend kicked off a little early, Hangout organizers have made arrangements just for you. There will be three stages, featuring twelve bands. Things will get going at 4 p.m. on Thursday, May 15, and continue until 11 p.m. Don’t stay out too late though, as you have to be back on the beach bright and early Friday morning (well, at 11:30 a.m.) to see Ozomatli. Oh, what am I saying? You are a professional. You can do both. Or just stay up all night.

There is an additional charge of $50 for this ticket, check out for more information.
