The Hangout Music Festival will spend May 17-19 celebrating 10 years of bringing music’s hottest acts to Gulf Shores. However, music is not the only reason this unique festival has brought thousands from around the globe to the Alabama Gulf Coast.
Hangout Fest touts surf, sun and fun to accent this musical experience. On Thursday, Nov. 29, the festival satisfied the masses with the release of a lineup that continues of tradition of mixing popular acts with promising up-and-comers of all walks.
Two of modern hip-hop’s most prominent artists will be making the journey to Gulf Shores to headline at the festival. Travis Scott will electrify the crowd with verbal prowess from the Lone Star State. He will shift the crowd into Sicko Mode with tracks from his latest album “Astroworld.” Hangout Fest will also feature a beachside set from Cardi B. With her infectious trademark sound, Cardi B has been spending the past year enjoying the success of tracks such as “I Like It,” “Bodak Yellow” and “Money.”
Hangout Fest has never shied from alternative sounds, and two past acts will be returning to headline for the 2019 installment. Folk rock band The Lumineers will be coming back to Gulf Shores as a headliner as well as The 1975. With a new album in the works, Vampire Weekend will bring their new material to Hangout Fest.
The festival also announced sets from Khalid, Kygo, Diplo, Judah & the Lion, Bebe Rexha, Allison Wonderland, Bishop Briggs, Sir Sly, Jonas Blue, The Interrupters, Flora Cash, Pale Waves, The Band Camino, Moon Boots, Easy Life and many more.
