In addition to its widely known headliners, Hangout Fest 2015 will feature a number of acts that may be more obscure. Although it may be your first opportunity to see them on a larger stage, some of those acts have become local favorites with their regular performances at smaller Azalea City venues.

In just a few short years Steelism has moved from more intimate venues to larger audiences on festival stages.

When Steelism made their local debut, the Nashville band was virtually unknown in Mobile. However, their memorable shows at Callaghan’s gave both the band a chance to win over local fans and the Callaghan’s regulars a chance to see them in an intimate environment.

The pedal-steel guitar serves as the sonic focal point of the band’s music. An instrument generally known as giving country music an extra twang, Steelism takes the pedal-steel to new dimensions by incorporating it into old school garage, mixed with a little psychedelic surf rock.

When they take the stage at Hangout Fest, the band will perform tracks from their latest release “615 to Fame.” Currently, they are warming up with a series of dates in the U.K. Steelism’s energy-filled set should pair well with the beachside setting of this world-class music festival.
