I've been at Hangout Fest for two days so far, and my biggest complaint is that the three-day music festival on the Gulf Shores of Alabama (Google it, and then Google plane tickets, because this place is paradise) is just three days and not a week. So far, if you were here (and I was!), you caught Kendrick Lamar's roof-raising set, Kings Of Leon's life-affirming, South-reclaiming headlining Hangout set, The Roots flawlessly busting through "You Got Me" before covering GUNS N ROSES, Delta Rae's scorching-hot performance (seriously, these people are Southern rock salvation AND they covered Fleetwood Mac), Public Enemy making it rain old-school hip-hop on Alabama and, you know, stuff like Chrissy Teigen on a water slide! Because she's here, and why not?
Check out some of my favorite things that went down at Hangout Fest, and don't miss the third and final (sniff!) day of Hangout Fest -- we'll be streaming it live all day!
