Hangout Highlights Day 3

Hangout Fest 2017 wrapped up with a stellar day of music and almost perfect weather. The early afternoon rain quickly passed, leaving clouds and a cooler temperature than the first two days at the Alabama festival.  Besides the weather, here are the highlights of the final day of Hangout Fest!


The Crowd Loved LANY So Bad

LA-based trio LANY drew a brave and exuberant crowd for their 1:45PM set, the front row screaming as the band sauntered onto Fitz's Stage. Despite the fact that it was windy and raining, LANY persevered and delivered an incredible performance. A few songs into the set, frontman Paul Jason Klein told the crowd that they deserve the world for sticking it out and waiting in the rain. As the set progressed, the crowd also sang along to every word, proving how loyal the LANY fanbase can be. Their show ended on a high note (literally) with the viral song "ILYSB," which features a catchy, falsetto-driven chorus.

Shaggy Impersonated Bill Clinton

For such an early afternoon set, Shaggy drew a very large crowd to his 1:30PM performance on The Hangout Stage. Towards the end of his set, the Jamaican singer played his smash hit “It Wasn’t Me,” and gave important advice for his fellow players. During the bridge of the song, he told everyone if they ever get caught cheating, "don't do like like Tiger Woods," but follow the footsteps on the ultimate player, Bill Clinton. A full on "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" impression followed. Hearing the iconic song live was definitely a bucket list checkmark for the entire crowd.

Franz Ferdinand Showed Off Their High Jumps

Franz Ferdinand's lead singer Alex Kapranos was all about the high kicks and jumps during their early evening set on the Fitz's Stage. While the Scottish band put on an incredibly energetic show and their set consisted of new songs, nothing was more iconic than the synchronized jumping that the crowd did during the hit "Take Me Out." This set was also their live comeback, after the band took some time off to work on their new album LateNightTales.

Chance The Rapper Played His First Show In Alabama

Chance The Rapper announced during his show that this was his first time ever being to Alabama, and he went all out to make his first time special for the Gulf Shores crowd. Backed by the very talented The Social Experiment, Chance delivered a layered and dynamic sound to the overflowing Surf Stage crowd on Sunday night. In addition to the support from The Social Experiment, Chance didn't skimp at all on production quality, with pyrotechnics, massive beach balls, and different interactive videos playing during each song. During his set, a fan appropriately held up a "W" Flag, since Chance's first time at Hangout was no doubt a victory.

Mumford Closed Out Hangout 2017 With A Bang

Fans flocked to the final set of Hangout Fest, completely packing the beach to watch the band of British brothers take the stage. Mumford and Sons put on a show that rocked, yet still lulled the crowd with their beautiful harmonies. Every time Mumford and Sons perform, you can tell they give every ounce of energy that they have to produce the best show possible. Their Hangout Set closed out with a fireworks finale, wrapping up Hangout Fest with a bang.
