Can't wait. Never miss Hangout or the Jazz festival.



Most excited about Modest Mouse. Also want to see Outkast, Wiz, the Black Keys and Alabama Shakes.

Hangout might not have your favorite lineup but it's pretty much unbeatable imo. You get to sleep late in your condo, hit the beach for a few hours and pre-game, then walk to fest. Then sleep in your own bed that night and take showers whenever you feel like it.

I can't wait to be honest. Going down with a friend and a couple girls, expecting a blast. I'm actually pleased with the line up

Actually there were no logistic nightmares the first year considering there were only about 8k people there


You're thinking if the second year, and year it was awful

I guess it was the 2nd year. Widespread Panic and My Morning Jacket headlined.

ea the line up is always good but its incredible this year. outside of the big headliners, I'm looking forward to the alabama shakes if i go


We went almost every year from 92 to 2004ish . Haven't made it over the past 5 years :( . Have a good buddy Sal that has a house not to far from the tracks there that we always went to throw down before and afterwards.

Never heard the Alabama Shakes , what's their style?

Bluesy rock with a fat black girl singer. She has some pipes, but the rest of the band leaves a bit to be desired. I've seen them a few times, and they're decent I guess. She's the star of the show.

This line up isn't worth $280. Wiz and moon taxi are the only two bands I'd want to see. Outcast was good when I was in high school. I thought they were done.
