This will be our second year attending Hangout Music Fest, and we could not be any more excited to step foot onto the sand at Gulf Shores, Alabama. The lineup this year consists of various artists from all types of genres — from Paramore to SZA to Red Hot Chili Peppers.
With the amount of great music this year, let us help you decide which artists you must see. To help you better plan your weekend, we’ve compiled a list of five must-see artists at Hangout Music Fest 2023.
Caye is a Boston native artist, songwriter, and producer. His sound has best been described as “Caribbean hip-hop.” If you like listening to artists such as Hans Williams, Alec King, and/or Russ, go find Caye performing at the Mermaid Stage Friday afternoon.
Another artist to see perform on Friday is Stephen Sanchez. This TikTok star has become a well-known artist lately with his hit song “Until I Found You.” He has grown an impressive social media following, and with his soulful vocals and heartfelt lyrics, he is only going to continue to keep growing.
Seeing the band COIN live is an experience in itself. The energy and emotion they give for their live shows is spectacular. Some of their most popular tracks include “Talk Too Much,” “I Don’t Wanna Dance,” and “Malibu 1992.” If you’re a fan of catchy, upbeat pop music with a bit of an edge, COIN is definitely worth checking out.
Another indie rock band worth seeing is Flipturn. The band is from Fernandina Beach, Florida, and has gained a reputation for their dynamic live performances and will be returning for a second year to the shores of Hangout Music Fest. Make sure to arrive at the festival early for their set on Saturday.
The Backseat Lovers
On Sunday, The Backseat Lovers will be performing on the Main Stage in the evening — a set you will want to stick around for. The charisma the boys have while performing on stage is quite impressive. The band has quickly gained popularity in the indie rock/pop rock scene. Don’t miss the chance to see this up-and-rising band live.
Whether you are into pop, rock, hip-hop, or indie, there will be something for everyone at this year’s festival. Make sure to buy your tickets online here if you don’t already have them, and get ready for a wonderful weekend full of fun and sun on the beach.
