About Hangout Music Fest:
Named “Music Festival of the Year” at the Pollstar Awards, the 2012 Hangout Music Fest features four action-packed days of music across five stages. This year’s festival sold out of General Admission tickets within two weeks of on-sale and has since completely sold out of all VIP-level passes. The newly expanded site includes an incredible array of activities and VIP amenities unheard of at music festivals, including swimming pools with stage views, the multi-level Sky Bar, fresh Gulf seafood, amusement rides, and much more.
