When people come to visit the Gulf Shores & Orange Beach area live music is often as important as the beach. You have come to expect great outdoor concerts and we are only too happy to keep bringing great bands to the area for your entertainment. Our biggest and most successful concerts are the massive three-day music festival The Hangout Music Fest and the continuing concert series at the Amphitheater at the Wharf – The Pepsi Concert Series. Both of these venues periodically add artists to their roster so be sure to look here regularly for updates.
The Hangout Music Fest
Last week the festival announced the following additions to the line-up: Kaskade, Umphrey’s McGee, Delta Spirit, Heartless Bastards, Greyboy All Stars and Givers.
Additionally, if you have a boat and are interested in attending the festival, you might want to consider docking at Homeport Marina and catching a daily shuttle to the concerts. Homeport Marina is the first ever Official Marina of the 2012 Hangout Music Festival. It is located 3 miles from the festival site at Lulu’s at Homeport, on the Intracoastal Waterway Mile Marker 155 and the Highway 59 Bridge.
