Reach for the Beach

February 2, 2016

The Hangout has teamed up with 92ZEW in Mobile, AL for our annual “Reach for the Beach”contest! If you think your band has what it takes to play the Hangout Fest, this could be your chance to prove it!

To enter, submit your band info to 92ZEW for consideration. Six finalists will be selected and each will play an opening set for a national recording artist during the “Countdown to Hangout Fest” concert series held in Mobile. Each week, finalists will be awarded scores based on a point system with the final score being a combination of points received from the official judges as well as those given by the audience from each “Countdown to Hangout Fest” show.

A winner will be selected based on final scores for the opportunity to play the 2016 Hangout Music Festival.

The competition is open to independent, unsigned musicians in Alabama. It is also open to artists in Mississippi and Florida if they are within a hundred mile radius of Gulf Shores, AL.

If you want your band to be considered, fill out the entry form and return it to 92ZEW with your best jams via mail or digital submission to 92ZEW. Click here for more details and the application form. All entries must be received by April 1, 2016 at 5 p.m. CST.

Good luck!
