In just four short years, the Hangout Music Festival has become a
must for music fans everywhere. Located on the beautiful beaches of Gulf Shores, Ala., and featuring a lineup packed
with big-name talent (to say nothing of the bountiful peel-and-eat shrimp), it’s a fest-goer’s dream — and this year, MTV
is joining the party.
Starting Friday (May 17) and going all through Sunday night, MTV will join forces with VH1 and
CMT to bring you nonstop coverage of Hangout 2013, which boasts a bill topped by the Kings of Leon, Stevie Wonder and Tom
Petty the Heartbreakers, not to mention Shovels Rope, Macklemore Ryan Lewis, Kendrick Lamar and Imagine
Dragons, to name just a few.
We’ll be live-streaming performances throughout the weekend on our Hangout
HQ and bringing you interviews and updates from all your favorite acts on MTV.com, VH1.com, CMT.com and Logo.com. Highlights
from Hangout 2013 will also air on MTV, VH1, CMT, MTV2, MTV Hits, MTV Jams, VH1 Classic and Palladia.
There’s also bound to be plenty of action from the beach,
and we’re assembling our teams — including some special guest correspondents — to deliver it all to you. (What can we say?
It’s a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it.) So take a trip Down South with MTV on Friday, Saturday and Sunday as we bring
you all the biggest and best moments from what’s sure to be an epic weekend. Make sure you slather on the sunscreen
because Hangout 2013 is going to be hot!
