[pullquote quote=”The Gulf Coast is what makes the Hangout Music Festival so unique – it is one of the most pristine coastlines in all of America.” credit=” Festival Co-Creator, Shaul Zislin”]Summertime festivals can be paradise for music fans and sunny beaches are, well, paradise for the rest of us. The combination of the two? Near perfection.

Dave Matthews Band, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jack White and Wilco will top this year’s lineup for the third annual Hangout Music Festival, taking place May 18-20th on Alabama’s Gulf Shores.

    I’m just grateful that Dave Matthews Band and the String Cheese Incident are not going to be headlining Lollapalooza. At least I hope not.

      Add Umphrey’s McGee and this would be my dream lineup! Have you ever seen either band perform, Henry? They are extremely talented musicians and put on a great show. Far superior musically to what passes as “music” on most stages these days.
