Then, you’ve also got some incredible under cards such as Tash Sultana, Alice Merton, Tank and the Bangas, and Melvv, and that’s just skimming the surface. 

We can’t wait to kick off another epic Hangout Music Festival weekend! So we pulled out our five most anticipated sets that you’ll definitely catch us shaking our booty at.

Tash Sultana has become an internet sensation with her viral videos and spunky personality. She is a true started from the bottom and now we’re here story. She has been selling out huge venues and performing at some of the largest festivals in the country. Fans have been falling in love with her guitar playing and signature sultry voice. 

Tash Sultana will be performing at the Hangout Stage on Friday from 3:30-4:30 pm 

Anderson .Paak 

Anderson .Paak’s last album came out in 2016 and he’s slated to release two albums this year, a solo album and one with his backing band, The Free Nationals. Energetic live performances are one of Paak’s many specialties, and with a slew of new music on the way he’s sure to show off some of his unreleased tracks.

Anderson .Paak will be performing at the Surf Stage on Saturday from 4:45-6:00 pm

Tank and the Bangas 

Tank and the Bangas, from New Orleans, Louisiana, have followed a meteoric rise from funky up and comers in the Nola music scene to national sweethearts after performing for NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series in Spring of 2017. With deep roots in funk, jazz, and all things New Orleans (not to mention a slam poet behind the microphone), Tank’s voice is about the only thing that can outshine her stage presence and her motley crew of talented ‘Bangas’.

Tank and the Bangas will be performing at the Beach Stage on Friday from 3:45-4:30 pm


Logic is one of the most talented rappers in the game right now and he’s fresh off of ‘Bobby Tarantino II’, his latest release, back in March. Hangout will be the first festival stop on his album tour which includes practically 4 shows a week through the beginning of August. He’s got the 808s, a sunset time slot, and enough bars and hooks to take you into Saturday night with a bang.

Melvv has those tropical vibes perfect for “hangin out” out on the beach. (See what we did there??) His music is a cross between tropical chill and fun house. Whether your dancing or just chilling in the sand, this is a definite must-see set. He just embarked on his first headlining tour this month and is making big moves in 2018.

Melvv will be performing at the Boom Boom Tent on Sunday from 11:45-12:30 pm
