Organizers for the festival announced today that the 4th annual Hangout Music Festival will take place May 17-19, 2013 in its usual spot in Gulf Shores, AL. A limited number of early-bird tickets go on sale December 1st and will be available for purchase here. Last year’s Fest featured performances by Dave Matthews Band, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The String Cheese Incident, Dispatch, The Flaming Lips, Skrillex and more. Since its smaller, humbler beginnings in 2010, the Hangout Music Fest has grown into one of the premiere destination full-scale music festivals on the American circuit and it will be interesting to see what the slate is for the fourth edition.

Who are you hoping to see at Hangout 2013?
