Hangout Music Festival returns to the beach after three long years away to a sold-out crowd.

Headliners Post Malone, Fall Out Boy, Kane Brown, ZEDD, and Maren Morris were the big names of the night, but with 19 other artists performing on day one alone, there was plenty of music to go around.

With six stages scattered across the beach, dozens of food vendors, several attractions, and even an NFT minting station, it is hard to get bored at Hangout. The wide variety of entertainment and eateries also kept lines short, which is a life-saver for the 40,000 fans on site.

Post Malone closed out the night with a bang. Fireworks, pyrotechnics, and Post's fiery personality had viewers locked in. Easily the biggest draw of the night, it was hard to fathom the huge crowd of people standing in attendance. A true passion for performing was obvious, with Post's stage presence and crowd interaction being top notch.

Now into its 10th year, Hangout Music Festival has really shaped itself into one of the premiere variety music festivals in the south. Whether it's country, rock, hip-hip, rap, indie, r'n'b, EDM, or anything in-between, it's likely to have some presence on the beach.

It didn't take long for fans to flood the festival grounds after a small weather delay early in the day, with every stage staying packed throughout the night. VIPs were also greeted to stripped back performances from LP Giobbi and Briston Maroney.

WEGL caught a ton of fantastic performances, from Remi Wolf's quirky pop-centric party on the Hangout stage to Koffee's modernized reggae set to close out the BMI Mermaid stage, there was no shortage of good music.
