WHEN: May 20-22
WHERE: Gulf Shores, Ala.
Though Hangout Music Festival is only in its second year we feel like it will stick around, not only because it's two for two in terms of quality line-ups, but because it offers a more scenic experience than any other American music festival. The stage for Hangout is erected at the beach; turn away from the stage and there's the ocean. The must-see acts this year are the Flaming Lips, My Morning Jacket, Girl Talk, and the Avett Brothers.
