The band lineup for the three-day Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, Ala., is one major factor that makes it arguably one of the best beach parties ever. Whether you're looking to see some of your favorite musicians, find new favorites, or just want to be in on the fun on the beach, May is a perfect time to rent Orange Beach condos with friends.
Musical acts like Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Stevie Wonder, The Shins, Kendrick Lamar, Kings of Leon, Bass Nectar and Ellie Goulding take to the massive main stage, which is just steps away from the gorgeous turquoise blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Each year's lineup is new as dozens of bands are added to the list for the festival and additional groups are added during the months leading up to the event! In addition to music, there are activities like a giant water slide and a public art contest. Visitors can check out massive sculptures across the event site - the minimum requirement is 5 feet! It's no wonder the event draws 35,000-plus people every year.
Tickets to the festival give you access to three full days of fun with bands on the beach. Because it's just a short drive from your beach house rental in Orange Beach, you can enjoy the festive environment that the many musicians and other vendors create attracting thousands of spectators. Although general admission allows you to see all the bands, VIP passes are also available for those who want a little something extra out of their weekend. The VIP passes offer guests unlimited access to the VIP Grove, an area where you can relax under umbrellas on beach chairs and couches while sipping on complimentary wine, beer and spirits and snack on free food. Plus, you can take a dip in the main stage VIP swimming pools.
Once you get your tickets for this festival, gather all of your friends and figure out the details of your Orange Beach vacation package. Are you heading down to the Gulf Coast with a bunch of friends for Hangout Music Festival? If so, consider renting a four-bedroom Orange Beach beach house or a three-bedroom Orange Beach condo. There is a shuttle to the palm tree lined event site, making it easy to partake in all the festivities of the weekend without having to worry about transportation and parking. If you are staying in Orange Beach, you can buy shuttle passes for the Hangout shuttle bus, which stops at several Orange Beach condominium buildings and the local Publix supermarket. You can purchase a three-day shuttle pass, which gives you unlimited transportation to and from the festival all weekend long. The shuttles run from 10:30 a.m. until one hour after the music ends, so you'll have plenty of time to enjoy the fun!
