The Weeknd, Calvin Harris, and Florence + The Machine are just some of the big names announced as performers for Hangout Fest 2016.
Festival organizers announced the big line-up on Tuesday, approximately six months before the event kicks off in Gulf Shores from May 20-22. Tickets go on sale Thursday November 19 at 10am CST.
Among the other notable performers included in the announcement are Alabama Shakes, Ellie Goulding, Lenny Kravitz, Flume, Haim, Cage the Elephant, Panic! At the Disco, the Chainsmokers and Grimes.
Hangout Fest might receive a boost in ticket sales after the demise of BayFest, which came to an end in 2015 due to diminished interest and financial struggles. BayFest was replaced by Ten Sixty Five, a smaller but free festival alternative in Mobile.
