Want discussion on who we think could headline Hangout 2018? Check it out here.
Hangout Music Festival just ended, and despite losing Frank Ocean it was still a blast. Sadly now that it's over it's time to start planning for Hangout Fest 2018! If you are planning to go to Hangout in 2018 let me stress how important it is to plan ahead! Hotels and condos are very limited in Gulf Shores, AL, where Hangout takes place, so you need to plan ahead (see below). If you have general questions about Hangout I highly suggest our Hangout Guides & Articles page - I try to write helpful articles on every topic I can think of for Hangout to help you prepare. This post is going to be a condensed version of that info, providing you with all the info you need to start planning for Hangout 2018. I will go over when you can expect the lineup, presale info, hotel advice and more. Let's make sure you start planning for Hangout 2018 early!
The Hangout Music Festival 2018 lineup is here! You can see the full lineup with the official tweet / announcement above. Headlining Hangout 2018 will be The Killers, Kendrick Lamar, and The Chainsmokers. Among the notable undercard artists are Odesza, St. Vincent, Zedd, Portgual. The Man, and Anderson Paak. We will have a full breakdown of the Hangout lineup soon, but for now here is what we really love about Hangout 2018:
Let us know what you think of the 2018 Hangout lineup in the comments below.
Hangout 2018's official dates are May 18 to May 20th, 2018. This is pretty standard as Hangout is typically the third weekend of May. By the way, if you want to know the important dates for everything at Hangout we have an article that goes over all of the important dates for Hangout.
For full details on Hangout tickets I suggest this article. Hangout tickets will official go on sale on Thursday (11/16) on their website. You can purchase anything from GA to Super VIP. Here are how the prices breakdown:
Hangout also offers a payment plan, which can make purchasing the pass less stressful financially. Like many festivals they use EZ Pay and for Hangout it split your payment into four different payments. Expect Hangout to do something very similar for 2018. Also of note, Hangout typically doesn't sell out so you don't need to purchase Day 1 if you aren't ready to commit. Of course I will say this and it will sell out in 2 hours, but usually it doesn't sell out.

More critical than even purchasing your passes for Hangout is booking your accommodations. Hangout takes place in Gulf Shores, AL, and if you've never been there this isn't a major city in terms of the housing options. Hangout is one of the biggest weekends of the year and things begin filling up quick. If you are deciding between a house and a hotel we have a full article on the topic here. Either is fine, but most people will go with a house as you can accommodate more people, there are a lot of options on the beach and most of the hotels in the area aren't that nice. If you are looking for a hotel for Hangout I highly recommend checking out our Hangout Hotels Page - we have historical prices (see how much hotels went for last year and when they sold out) and lots of other useful info like how far the hotel is from Hangout and how to get there. Also, if you register at Event Track you can set the price you want to pay and we show all the hotels for Hangout that meet your price info and a lot more in your profile page.
As I said I highly recommend our Hangout Guides & Articles Page as I try to write about everything I can think of that will help people plan for the festival. If you have a question I didn't answer I'd love to hear it so I can add to our coverage. Either let us know on Twitter or feel free to E-Mail Me.
