Hangout Music Fest began in 2010, post BP Oil Spill, to showcase the healthy, thriving Gulf Coast. The event has grown tremendously—last year over 40,000 people attended, infusing $31 million into the local economy.

The Hangout stages are situated on the beaches with beachside bars and dining, poolside viewing areas, shaded lounges and more. Budget-conscious attendees may take advantage of EZPAY (a three-installation payment plan), multi-bedroom beachfront condos and meals cooked “at home.”
