I meant to post this last night, but then caught in between a tattoo session and making almond milk. True story.
The big announcement was yesterday, and it floored many people across the nation. This is the first appearance of The Black Keys and The Killers in any festival lineups this year (both faves of mine, btw) and we also have OutKast, which gave us the surprise of coming back with the Coachella announcement. The Hangout (Gulf Shores, AL, May 16-18) has had incredible lineups since it started, and this year is no exception.
The fact that Jack Johnson also showed up on this list made me hopeful, maybe he will come to Wakarusa or LouFest? I bet the surprise appearance he did last year at Bonnaroo (in-lieu of Mumford & Sons) made him want to go back to playing festivals. We have the last of three announcements of the Waka lineup this morning, so maybe I’ll get lucky.
Anyway, I leave with the awesomeness that is The Hangout Music Festival lineup:
