Watch Jack White, Wilco, Alabama Shakes, Dr Dog, Edward Sharpe, Flaming Lips and more live from Hangout ’12

The Hangout Festival returns to Gulf Shores, Alabama for its third year on May 18-20, 2012.  Unable to make it?  Watch a live stream at myspace.

Announced on February 7th, the 2012 Hangout Festival line-up is headlined by the Jack White, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Dave Matthews Band.  Hangout will be one of several fests Dr. Dog play supporting their fantastic album from earlier this year, Be The Void (they’ll also be at Lollapalooza, Outside Lands Music Festival and St Louis’ LouFest).  Both The Flaming Lips and Dawes play Hangout and Atlanta’s Party in the Park this weekend (the latter also play Nelsonville Music Festival – yep, three in one weekend – and are essentially the busiest band on the festival scene: Mountain Jam, Bonnaroo, Clearwater, Lollapalooza, LouFest and more all to come).  At Hangout the Lips are performing Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon with Phantogram.

Wilco’s 2012 Southern US tour ends with a Hangout set on May 18th and a show at Memphis’ Mud Island Amphitheater the next night (their last gig in the region for at least a year – tickets still available to the latter here).  Hangout will also feature an eclectic mix of other artists: The String Cheese Incident, Steve Winwood, Skrillex, STS9, Gogol Bordello, Dispatch, Chris Cornell, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Mavis Staples, Flogging Molly, Young the Giant, Coheed & Cambria, Paul Oakenfold, Delta Spirit, Randy Newman, Cage the Elephant, Alabama Shakes and more…

The Future Heart’s commentary on last year’s fest – which also featured The Flaming Lips, and was webcast by Spin – is here.  2011’s lineup gave the impression they were aiming to be the Austin City Limits of the springtime, on a beach.  The 2012 lineup by contrast is more in line with Dave Matthews Caravans from last summer…but with white sand and palm trees…
