The part of the U.S. in which Hangout takes place is often overlooked by the other coasts (that is, East and West), and it’s deserving that the American Southeast gets a bit of its due in the shape of a world-class music festival. Gulf Shores, as its name implies, is the littoral coast running along the northern edge of the Gulf of Mexico. The gulf is smaller and better protected than either the Pacific or Atlantic oceans, so its waters are calmer and warmer and great for a swim. Not surprisingly, beach volleyball, bonfires on the sand, kayaking and standup paddleboarding are all integral parts of the Hangout experience.

Completely unrelated to beaches and music, but still just as awesome, is the festival's Puppy Kissing Booth. Yes, you read that right: there is a booth filled with puppies where attendees can go for cuddles and kisses in between their favorite acts.
