Hangout Music Festival Tickets
The first time that the Hangout Music Festival was held, was at 2010. and that’s the year in which the whole tradition began. Festival occurs during the summer on the beaches of Gulf Shores in Alabama, and it features a variety of music genres, rock, electro, hip-hop etc. Some of the noticeable artists that performed on Hangout Fest are Foo Fighters, The Black Keys, Primus, Queens of the Stone Age and many more. There are two main stages – Hangout Stage and the Chevrolet Stage, as well as some smaller stages. The founders of the festival are Shaul Zislin and A.J. Nilad. They came up with the idea while thinking about an event that could be a time for relaxation, fun and positive energy. That is why the symbol of the Hangout Music Festival, is a shaka gesture, a Hawaiian hand gesture that means that everything is all right. The Hangout Music Festival has developed from The Hangout, which is a restaurant where many musicians performed, and that is covered by Huka Entertainment and some other sponsors. The policy of the festival is that no drugs or illegal activities will be tolerated; the event is for adults, so people under 18 years must be followed by an adult; children age 10 or less must be followed by parents, and they can attend for free. Since the fest occurs in the summer when it is hot, there are free water fountains and filling stations all over the place.
The beginning of the Hangout Fest was followed by a tragedy. In 2010. when the first incarnation of the Hangout Music Festival was happening, Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico exploded, and the sea was polluted for 87 days. Still, the Hangout Music Festival had up to 15 thousand visitors per day, and in the next years, that number was getting bigger and bigger. In 2010. the Hangout Music Festival contained two main stages, two smaller ones, plus a children friendly stage and a tent stage. The children friendly stage or Shaka Island Stage was a place where children could see and try many instruments. In addition, they could play in sand, finger paint, and the music there was adjusted to the audience, so there were some gentle and soft tunes.
Hangout Music Festival gets more and more popular every year. The atmosphere around the whole happening is the main reason for the rise of popularity. During the hot summer nights there is nothing better than party on the beach, next to the ocean, with cold beer, beautiful people and plenty of great music. Besides music acts, there are plenty of other activities people can enjoy. There are volleyball tournaments organized every year, and if you’re not a sportsmen you can chill on the hammock beach. Since there is an open ocean in front of the visitors, activities like parasailing or even fishing trips are available. There are also romantic boat cruises and hot balloon rides, and even areas with games like ping pong are available. All kinds of bars are available. Like the Sky Bar, where you can get on top and enjoy the show from over there. Besides that, to emphasize the carnival atmosphere, Ferris wheel and MegaDrop are also functional, creating another fun activity to the visitors. For visitors who are ready to pay a little bit more to have a better experience, there are VIP tickets.
The Hangout Music Festival offers a unique sensation, since it manages to capture the wild, crowded nights with calm, introspective moments by the water. The whole circle of festival experience must contain both of these moments; only then, the full enjoyment opens for the visitor. The presence of the ocean is, doubtless, a great factor for the success of the Hangout Music Festival.
