Hangout Fest Opens Friday in Gulf Shores

Posted: Updated:
GULF SHORES, Ala. -

It's a big weekend for live music on the Alabama coast.

The third annual Hangout Festival opens Friday on the public beach in Gulf Shores.

Organizers say three-day festival passes are sold out, but single-day tickets are still available.

Started during the BP oil spill in 2010, the Hangout Festival provides the coastal tourism industry with a big jumpstart on beach season.

Acts this year include Kings of Leon, Stevie Wonder and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.
