So while I wasn’t overly enthused with the initial line-up for this edition of Hangout:
A) I must have been in the minority, since 3day passes sold out lightning quick
B) Additions organizers have made are pretty much what I hoped for (Big Gigantic on Thursday was like a kick in the nuts though…)
C) The rumors of Kid Cudi and Avicii are certainly great (if they happen)
D) Its still a great fest with considerably smaller crowds at 35,000 max
E) ITS ON THE BEACH
Similar to last year, I could use some assistance in selecting songs for artists that I don’t know, or know well enough to decide on a decent song or two to include. Comment below:
String Cheese Incident
G Love & the Special Sauce
…and for shits, Logan feel free to leave your favorite Steve Winwood and Randy Newman joints. They might make the cut.
P.S. – If you enjoy combing message boards and reading everything possible about the festival before attending, check out these fine resources.
