The 3-day event of 2010 brought nearly 60 bands to four stages on the gorgeous beach of Gulf Shores, Alabama, thanks to the folks at The Hangout. It was so well received and it generated so much excitement across the country that there is an agreement with the city to host the concerts for at least the next five years.
Grab your calendar now and mark May 20–22, 2011 for the 2nd Annual Hangout Beach Music Festival. The 2011 lineup has not yet been announced, but we know it will be a crowd-pleasing mixture of styles, including rock, pop, indie, jam and Americana. (To give you a better idea, the 2010 acts included Zac Brown Band, Ben Harper and the Relentless 7, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Alison Krauss, NeedToBreathe, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Trey Anastasio and TAB, Rodrigo 7 Gabriela and many, many more.)
Picture yourself on the white-sand beach of Gulf Shores, Alabama, basking in the salty breeze and warm rays of the sun. Picture yourself in the audience during a concert by your favorite musicians, cheering and singing along. Picture yourself sharing a tremendous weekend with your best buddies or your sweetheart. Now put them all together in the same picture. You can’t beat this incredible experience!
But to make it even better, how about a FREE night of lodging? Stay in a prime location in Gulf Shores (maybe even right next door to the festival site!) or pay a little less and stay in nearby Orange Beach, Fort Morgan or Perdido Key and just catch a shuttle to the event. See MeyerRE.com for all the details and to choose from the largest selection of properties on the island.
Stay tuned—we’ll have lots more information as details become available. But don’t wait to claim your condo or house, since the most popular properties will book very quickly!
