The 2011 event marks the 10th year for the legendary festival, which began in 2002 as a remarkable idea to serve a passionate yet underappreciated and overlooked fanbase, and ended up becoming the premier multi-day concert destination of the summer whose dynamic and eclectic programming paved the way for the age of the great American music festival.

The one-of-a-kind music festival takes place May 20th – 22nd on the beaches of Gulf Shores, Alabama – just minutes from the Florida border. Tickets go on-sale this Wednesday at 9 am CST. A confirmed lineup is listed below. More bands, amenities and activities will be announced in the coming weeks. The Hangout Music Festival debuted in 2010 and set itself apart from other festivals by featuring a blockbuster lineup of bands performing on stages located directly on the beach. Thousands of condominiums within walking distance add to the exceptional experience shared by music enthusiasts and beach lovers. This year, the festival is adding a fifth music stage under an air-conditioned tent and creating Hammock Beach, a replenishing salt-water lagoon where music fans will find shade, hammocks, and art installations. Another feature of Hammock Beach will be the Sky-bar tower, a structure built specifically for Hangout offering 360-degree views of the festival. For fans interested in taking their festival experience to the next level, VIP ticket holders are invited to take a dip in Hangout’s new resort style in-ground pool with views of the main stage (deck side bar service is included). Other new attractions include an extended kids’ area, family events, late night deejays, and shuttle service between stages.
