Rent Orange Beach condos and "Hangout" for one extra day for the Hangout Thursday Kickoff Party.

You may already have your tickets to Hangout, but it's not too late to grab a ticket for the Thursday Kickoff Party, a 12-hour party with 14 bands on two of Hangout's stages. Come by for an early taste of all the fun you'll have at Orange Beach rentals this weekend!

Kick-off Hangout, the biggest party of the year!

Check out availability at Rent Orange Beach condos and Orange Beach condos so you can head down to see Hangout Music Festival, which is easily the biggest music festival in the Southeast. Usually held the 3rd weekend of May this festival will be filled with all kinds of fun activities, as well as incredible headlining acts like Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Stevie Wonder and Kings of Leon. But if you check into your Orange Beach vacation rentals a few days early, you can treat yourself to the kick-off party on Thursday prior to the festival. 

What is sure to be a fantastic pre-game event, the Hangout Thursday Kickoff Party is almost as awesome as the three-day music festival itself. This event has a full day of music on the festival grounds, starting at 11 a.m. and ending at 11 p.m.

Bands like Umphrey's McGee, Benny Benassi, Lotus, Dillon Francis, Earth, Railroad, and Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors are some of the performers you might expect to see, giving you a taste of all the fun that is to come in the following days. 

Contact Meyer Vacation Rentals for tickets for Thursday's action as well as three-day passes for the event. The Thursday Kickoff Party is the best way to get yourself psyched for the rest of the incredible bands that will be performing for the weekend. Plus, staying in beach houses in Orange Beach for an extra day means you have that much more time to enjoy the shore and explore the area.
