Hangout Music Festival Releases 2015 Schedule

In DubEra, Festivals, Florida by Maxx McInerneyLeave a Comment

Hangout Music Festival 2015 set times are out. Everyone will undoubtably have something they love and hate about them. Creating a festival schedule is a tricky thing because you just can’t please everyone. Here are some of our thoughts on the 2015 Schedule. First of all we hate that they put Umphrey’s and Foo Fighters at the same time. Nothing we can do though. The second thing were not very thrilled about is a lot of the acts were excited …

FESTIVAL REVIEW: In The Allman’s Absence, Wanee Still Thrives

In Festivals, Florida by Chris Tart5 Comments

Over the past four years, our outlet has been to the Suwannee somewhere around 20 times. Each festival is special and brings a unique experience, but one festival is the biggest. Wanee, both in attendance and in caliber of artistry, is always the largest gathering at the beloved Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park. With the Allman Brothers Band calling it a day, there was a huge void to be filled – an impossible one. Nevertheless, thousands and thousands of …

FESTIVAL PREVIEW: 5 Reasons To Think Highly of Hangout Music Festival

In DubEra, Festivals, Florida by Maxx McInerneyLeave a Comment

While we look back on 4 consecutive years of the Hangout Music Festival, DubEra could be considered a Hangout veteran. Missing just the first year in 2010, we have attended every year since 2011.

It’s a major event that pulls some of the biggest names in music, just like Coachella, Bonnaroo, and Lollapalooza, yet it feels so different. Here are 5 reasons/memories that should …
