The second annual Hangout Festivalhas come and gone, leaving a huge mark on the community of Gulf Shores, Alabama as it raised funds and awareness of issues plaguing the Gulf Coast of the US after last year’s oil spill disaster.

Did you hear about the surprise daytime Foo Fighters set? The group joined Cee Lo Green on stage for a surprise set of cover tunes during Saturday afternoon.
Thanks to photographer Steve Galli for the amazing photos from this festival on the beach. For anyone who slept on Hangout Festival this year, mark your calendars for next year. This may be the ultimate way to kick off the summer music season. What’s better than rock ‘n roll turned up to 11 and your sand in the toes? We can’t think of anything better.
