Hangout Music Fest

When: May 15th-May 17th

Where: Gulf Shores, Alabama

Why Go: Perched on the Gulf of Mexico's white-sand shores, Hangout doesn't try to be serious. Why bother, when everyone is either topless (him) or in a bikini (in most cases, her)? Imagine a super-charged MTV Beach House with acts like the Foo Fighters, Jenny Lewis and Skrillex playing to a crowd pushing a day-long sun buzz, all looking for a good excuse to raise one more margarita toward to the sky.  

Must-See Acts: Foo Fighters, Sam Smith, Beck, My Morning Jacket, Spoon, Jenny Lewis, Sylvan Esso, Father John Misty, Zac Brown Band, Skrillex, Paramore, Houndmouth, Jeff the Brotherhood, Future Islands, Major Lazer
