spill, and considerably less toxic!

Hangout Music Festival debuted in 2010 and set itself apart from other
festivals by featuring bands performing on stages located directly on the
beach. This year, the festival is adding a fifth music stage under an
air-conditioned tent and creating Hammock
Beach, a replenishing
salt-water lagoon where music fans will find shade, hammocks, and art
installations. Another feature of Hammock
Beach will be the Sky-bar
tower, a structure built specifically for Hangout offering 360-degree views of
the festival. Other new attractions include an extended kids’ area, family
events, late night deejays, and shuttle service between stages. Worth noting:
while there’s a nearby state park where camping is an option, there’s a slew of
condos, beach hoses and hotel rooms all within walking distance from the
performance areas.
