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.

1.21.10 – I’m Alive

I know, I know… it’s been almost a month since my last post. Lets just say 2010 has been kicking my a$$ with a wedding, crossword puzzles, beverages, darts, and work. Back on it though. Let’s hope for good this time. I have written a couple posts about some local bands, but am waiting for a good video to post. Gotta keep moving along now. This one is about ‘Delta Spirit’. They have a ridiculously great album called ‘Ode To Sunshine’ that I can listen to over and over again. It came out in 2007 or ’08 and I really don’t think I’m tired of any of it still. I had the distinct pleasure of catching their set at Bonnaroo last year and hope to see them at least 53 more times this year. The guys voice is so powerful and still sincere. The slow songs are gorgeous… the fast songs are great and def. radio worthy. Go buy the record NOW and hopefully we’ll be seeing another one from them very soon. I’m going to introduce you to 2 of my favorite websites too.

First is ‘Daytrotter’. They post new song sessions everyday with different artists and ‘Delta Spirit’ has been a guest at least 3 times. The first link I’m posting has a Paul Simon cover called
‘Duncan’ and a wonderfully slow song called ‘House Built For Two’.

The second link has ‘Bleeding Bells’ and their single ‘Trashcan’

Thirdly, I’m posting a link to another wonderful site from across the pond called ‘La Blogotheque’. They do some amazing videos and kinda just let the artists do whatever they wanna do. I highly recommend wasting at least 12 days on this site. This is ‘People Turn Around’

Here’s the blogotheque version of ‘Trashcan’ too… wish i could’ve been on that trolley :)
