Beach festivals combine two simple yet enjoyable things: going to the beach and attending a music festival. Everybody loves to do both, so why not combine them?

This is where Hangout Music Festival comes into play, posing as a triple threat by combining a beach experience with both music and art. You get the warm sun and sandy shores to go along with the amazing talent you\’ll witness. If you\’re looking to escape the frigid Chicago weather and kick off your summer festival season as early as May 15-17, make your way down south to Gulf Shores, Alabama for this musical extravaganza.

To accommodate an already amazing looking venue, prepare to dance on the white sand to some of the greatest acts in the music industry. Some of the \”non-EDM\” based acts include Foo Fighters, Zac Brown Band, Beck, Paramore, Umphrey\’s McGee, Lupe Fiasco, Phantogram, Damian \”Jr. Gong\” Marley (yes, Bob Marley\’s son), Iration, and many more.

Though the electronic-based acts are numbered, they do contain a wad of talent. Showcasing the dance music world is Skrillex, Major Lazer, Krewella, Adventure Club, ODESZA, Beats Antique Griz, Gramatik, and a few others.

Get your beach bodies ready and your wallets out; a weekend pass will cost you $249 with no service charge, a fairly competitive price. Hangout\’s lineup announcement comes amidst the great time of the year where all of our favorite festivals are announcing their lineups. If you haven\’t already, check out the lineups for Ultra Music Festival, Governor\’s Ball, and CoachellaBonnaroo will also be announcing their lineup tomorrow.

Tickets will go on sale tomorrow, January 13th at 9 AM Chicago time. Plan accordingly and click on the link below to purchase your tickets.
