- Prepare for your beach weekend
When you go to the Hangout Festival, there are a couple of other things you should be aware of. Food, drinks and water will be available onsite, so you won’t need to pack a lunch. No outside food will be allowed. Bring a water bottle and get it refilled as you need to while you’re inside the festival. You can bring your small backpack (20” x 15” x 13”) or fanny pack, but expect it to be searched by festival security. Don’t forget your sunscreen. Bring a hat, shades and a beach towel or blanket. And your phone. Bring your phone. We know you’ll be instagramming like crazy and texting your buddies all the great shots and videos from your weekend.
The Hangout Festival weekend will be here before we know it. Tickets are limited. Accommodations choices are still great. The weather on the Alabama Gulf Coast in May is perfect! Your friends are already making their plans! What are you waiting for?
Come for the music. Stay for the beach. And take home memories that can only be made in beautiful Gulf Shores, Alabama. We at Sunset Properties are looking forward to your arrival!
