Hangout Music Festival Lineup 2011

Stereogum is an official media partner of this year’s Hangout Music Festival May 20-22nd in Gulf Shores, Alabama. This is the second year of the beach-side fest, and our first time attending. In 2010 the event brought tens of thousands of much-needed tourists to the state’s Gulf area in the wake of the devastating Deepwater Horizon oil spill. This year Hangout’s impressive lineup expands beyond the typical hippie fest with performances from Paul Simon, Foo Fighters, Flaming Lips, Black Keys, Cee Lo, and Girl Talk, though there is also plenty of jam band fare (MMJ, Galactic, Ween, Umphrey’s McGee, Widespread Panic) and obviously Alabama’s Drive-By Truckers, who will hopefully be guiding tours in trucks. We’ll be on site doing interviews and tweets and metal detecting, but first we’re kicking things off with a ticket giveaway. One of you gets one (1) pair of tickets to the three-day event. You are responsible for your own travel and lodging, but there are some affordable condos in the area that would love to have you. To enter, just comment below (use your ’Gum profile OR your Facebook profile, but have a valid e-mail address so we can contact you if you win) with YOUR FAVORITE BAND FROM ALABAMA. We’ll pick the winner randomly when the sweepstakes ends one week from today: 4/25/11 at 6 PM EST. Good luck!

UPDATE: Winner has been contacted. Thanks for entering, everybody.
