Macklemore, Bloc Party, Ellie Goulding Coming To Hangout Music Fest


It’s all about the bands, the beach and the experience: From May 17 to 19, Alabama’s Gulf Shores plays host to the Hangout Music Fest, an epic musical event featuring live performances by everyone from queer faves like Macklemore, Bloc Party (above), Grizzly Bear and the Breeders to legends like Stevie Wonder and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. (Plus Trey Anastasio, The Shins, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the Black Crowes, Public Enemy, The Roots, Passion Pit, Ellie Goulding, Imagine Dragons, and more acts than we can remember!)

The annual concert series, which debuted in 2010, draws tens of thousands of people each day for five stages of music, chillaxing on Hammock Beach, the Sky Bar tower (and its 360-degree views of the action), Gulf Stream seafood and tons of fun in the sun.
