Red Hot Chili Peppers, SZA, Calvin Harris, Paramore & more for Hangout Fest 2023

Hangout Music Festival has announced the soundtrack to your quintessential beach vacation on the majestic white sand beaches of Gulf Shores, Alabama, May 19th – 21st. Hangout is the ultimate kickoff to summer, a weekend defined by dancing in the sand with your best friends while listening to your favorite pop, dance, and rock artists at one of North America’s most beautiful beaches.

The legendary RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS will set the tone for those looking to get after it on the beach. Pop-punk is alive and well at Hangout with PARAMORE leading the way supported by MAYDAY PARADE and THE MAINE and the various sub-genres of pop-rock, indie-rock and americana are well-represented with The BACKSEAT LOVERS, RAINBOW KITTEN SURPRISE, NOAH KAHAN, COIN and Alabama’s own THE VEGABONDS.

The present and future of pop and singer-songwriting will be waiting for you too. Prepare to get lost in the hypnotic R&B of SZA who is about to drop her long-awaited new album SOS, dance your heart out at CALVIN HARRIS and LIL NAS X, swoon over brotherly indie trio AJR and the iconic TOVE LO and find out what all the hype is about at ASHE, STEPHEN SANCHEZ, JESSIE MURPH and SABRINA CARPENTER.

Hip-hop comes proper to Hangout this year, with the festival rolling out the red carpet for A$AP Mob’s FERG, Australian rapper THE KID LAROI, the fiercely independent RUSS, Baton Rouge’s KEVIN GATES and reigning queen of Memphis rap, GLORILLA. Grammy-winning R&B bassist THUNDERCAT rounds out the bill with his larger than life live spectacle.

Nothing tops a dance music throwdown with all of your best friends on the beach, and this year’s Hangout lineup is fully loaded. Leading the charge is Aussie export FLUME and genre-bending producer SKRILLEX. Electronic anthems continue with larger than life dance icons REZZ and ALISON WONDERLAND, while chiller strains can be found at GRYFFIN, SAID THE SKY, BIG WILD and TWO FEET. House heads can unite at JOHN SUMMIT, DR. FRESCH, ALUNA and HONEYLUV.

With a nod to its southern roots, Hangout sprinkles in some country vibes too with PRISCILLA BLOCK, MIKE. and KIDD G.

The Hangout experience has been carefully crafted over the past decade for you to hang loose. It’s the most anti-winter, adulting-be-damned, carefree getaway possible.
