Hangout Fest organizers hold meeting to discuss citizens’ concerns

Top Stories

GULF SHORES, Ala. (WKRG) — The group that runs the Hangout Music Festival is hosting a meeting in Gulf Shores Thursday to discuss concerns residents have expressed regarding the event.

Those concerns include noise, parking and typical dress code.

The owner of Hangout Fest, Shaul Zislin, says his team has a tangible plan in place to address certain issues. They’re working with speaker technology to dial back some of the noise, and they’re implementing what they’re calling “Hangout Ambassadors.”

“We will have a person one very block surrounding sensitive areas as we call it,” said Zislin. “And again we’ll say ‘sir you can’t park here,’ and if the sir we talk to isn’t behaving nice, we will call the police and say ‘hey, we’ve got a bad one here.'”

Hangout is contracted with the city to run through 2025 in Gulf Shores, but as part of the agreement, Hangout still has to get a permit every year.
