There are two outdoor music festivals in this area that have garnered national attention: DeLuna Fest on Pensacola Beach and Hangout Fest at Gulf Shores, Ala. Deluna Fest has been “extorted” by island officials and hit with hurdle after hurdle to get its festival on the beach. Hangout Fest has had solid support from local, county and state officials and received millions of BP dollars.
Yesterday, the Gulf Shores City Council voted unanimously this afternoon to approve the Hangout Music Festival 2012 application. The 6-0 approval came after limited discussion. Next year, the three-day event is set for May 18-20.
This is your last week to get tickets at advanced ticket pricing of $149.95. At 12:01am, on September 3rd (this Saturday) weekend ticket prices will be increasing to $189.95. Weekend pass prices will again increase the week of the festival to $215. VIP weekend passes are going to stay $800 and include some amazing perks: all stages, in/out privileges, parking, all access to VIP lounges, complimentary beverages, VIP-only events, premiere viewing areas and an exclusive kick off party on October 13. If you’re planning on attending and are waiting to purchase your tickets for whatever reason, we highly suggest you purchase them this week! Visit delunafest.com
