Hangout Festival to donate proceeds to Gulf Coast Relief

Trey Anastasio and TAB will headline the inaugural The Hangout Beach, Music and Arts Festival this weekend on the beach in Gulf Shores, AL. Other performers include Flaming Lips, Ben Harper and Relentless 7, Girl Talk, Alison Krauss & Union Station, John Legend, Zac Brown Band, The Black Crowes, Ray LaMontagne, Michael Franti & Spearhead and many others.

In light of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill affecting the Gulf Coast, the Hangout Beach Music and Arts Festival will be donating all profits to regional coastal cleanup and preservation.

The stages are being constructed upon pristine beach, but the oil slick in the gulf threatens to endanger the wildlife habitats and livelihoods of those that live in the region.

Leading the The Hangout’s mission for Gulf Coast awareness is national nonpartisan organization HeadCount. Festival attendees are encouraged to visit the HeadCount booth at The Hangout Gulf Shores to write their local senators and congressmen and to bring donations and supplies for Gulf Coast relief.
