Now titled the "Concert for the Coast," the festivities will take place in Gulf Shores, Ala. from May 14 to May 16, as well as a one-night gig in New Orleans on Sunday. The Roots, Ray LaMontagne, Trey Anastasio and TAB, Girl Talk, Ozomatli, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals and the Zac Brown Band are just some of the acts set to play this weekend's festival. New Orleans natives and jazz pioneers Preservation Hall Jazz Band are also scheduled to play in both cities.
"The Gulf Coast is what makes the Hangout Music Festival so unique," said Shaul Zislin, co-creator of the festival. "It is one of the most pristine coastlines in all of America, and we will donate every penny above our costs to keep it clean."
For those who don't want the Hangout to end, the Gulf Shores gigs will move from the beach to an indoor location after 11PM CT. Alex B, Gift of Gab and Big Gigantic are set to perform at Friday's after-hours dance party. Meanwhile, Keller Williams will be doing a special set for the Rex Foundation and Mobile Keeper. Tickets must be purchased in advanced with a suggested $5 donation via either Williams' website or hangoutmusicfest.com.
Tickets to Concert for the Coast will cost you $79 a day or $159 for a three-day pass.
