Alabama's tourism department has named Gulf Shores' Hangout Music Festival a Top 10 event.

The unofficial kickoff to summer in Gulf Shores, Alabama, the Hangout Music Festival was recently named a Top 10 event by the Alabama Tourism Department.

Hangout Fest Is A Top 10 Event For 2016




The Alabama Tourism Department recently released its list of the top 10 events for 2016, including the Hangout Music Festival, slated for May 20-22.

“Taking place in May, it’s kind of a kickoff to summer vacation at the beach,” said Brian Jones, public relations director for the Alabama Tourism Department. “And especially on multi-day events, you’ll have people spending the night, and that’s good for local tourism.”

Jones added that the “top volume entertainers” have helped elevate the Hangout Music Festival's status. This year, the event will bring a variety of artists to Gulf Shores, including The Weeknd, Florence and the Machine, Alabama Shakes, Calvin Harris, Ellie Goulding and Lenny Kravitz as headliners.

Meyer Vacation Rentals is offering a Hangout special to guests looking for a great deal in the Fort Morgan, Orange Beach of Perdido Key areas HERE. Want to bring a few friends with you when you visit for the Hangout Music Festival? Try a three-bedroom condo in Orange Beach.
