The Hangout Music Festival is no joke. You’re in the sunshine, on the beach (gross, right?), and you definitely run the risk of getting burned and dehydrated. I sound like a nana right? But it’s definitely stuff to think about. We sunscreened up and got ready for day 2 of Hangout…rolling 3 deep. It was on. All the sunshine…ended up nowhere to be found.
Dawn, Marci, and I spent the morning laying on the beach…because why not? It was nice to take a minute and relax before the craziness that the night brought. It was a bit cloudy, which should have been my first warning sign you’ll read about in a moment. But we enjoyed the solitude nonetheless.
And then we were off. Day 2 was upon us. Cloudy skies be damned.
^^cute stage area right?
First, I watched Dawn and Marci fight it out on this obstacle course which was a RIOT. Then we took a ride in the ferris wheel, which had the best views…even with the clouds.

Then we watched Band of Horses and Cheat Codes…who totally let us rock out during massive storm #1. This is where I laughed that I forgot ponchos, and realized I had sneakers as footwear. (Day 1 left my feet in pain, what can I say.) Details. We’ll just say it’s gonna be a hard 1-2 months until I can get a pedicure. Let that marinate.
Anyway. Next up was Major Lazer, who I was really stoked for. More videos ahead. Listening to this set, on the sand beside the waves, was one of the coolest concert experiences I’ve had to date. I love this second video where he had us take our shirts off and then throw them in the air, because fuck it. Right? (Spoiler alert: I was not one of them, ha).
Next up was Twenty One Pilots, who was rad per usual. I stopped taking photos at this point, because all of the sudden, we were in the middle of a mass exodus of the festival. Severe storm warnings rolled in and by the time we stood up, the sky dumped on us. Between running the wrong direction, barefoot and soaked, we finally made it home to dry off and call it a day. Day 2, you saucy minx. The third and final day will be recapped tomorrow!
