With dozens of artists across six stages, where do you begin when trying to plan your weekend at Hangout Fest? WEGL has you covered, giving you five of our favorites from each stage with all the information you need to set your schedule.
Check out our five favorite artists for The Hangout Stage.
The Brook & The Bluff 2:15pm on Sunday 5/22
This rowdy bunch of Auburn grads are a sight to behold live. Just as energetic as they are melodic, The Brook & The Bluff have been rising stars the past couple of years with their debut album, First Place, and follow up, Yard Sale. Their folky take on rock harkens back to classics like Simon and Garfunkel and The Bryds, while also staying up to speed with modern sounds and production.
For Fans Of: Mt. Joy, Caamp, The Lumineers
Song To Check Out: Don't Go Slippin' Away
Remi Wolf 2:30pm on Friday 5/20
This funky left-of-field pop artist knows how to craft an ear worm. Remi Wolf blew up on TikTok thanks in part to her song "Photo ID." Whacky lyrics and a relatable attitude further cemented Remi into the zeitgeist of Gen-Z pop culture. She's still on the rise, but don't be shocked when you see her 2:30pm time slot packed out with fans.
For Fans Of: Still Woozy, Omar Apollo, BENEE
Song To Check Out: Sexy Villian
Leon Bridges 5:45pm on Saturday 5/21
A man who needs very little introduction, Leon Bridges is one of the biggest R'n'B artists of our time. His soulful take on Americana has given his music a very distinct flair in a packed field of music. He has also made waves for his two collaborative EPs with Khruangbin, Texas Sun and Texas Moon. The Altanta native should certainly be high on your list of artists to see.
For Fans Of: Khruangbin, Black Pumas, Brittany Howard

Flipturn 12:45pm on Sunday 5/22
One of the smallest artists on the lineup, Flipturn is no stranger to the big stage. Opening for acts like Mt. Joy, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, and more, Flipturn has gained a lot of street cred in the alternative rock world. Smooth and groovy, the band crafts so absolutely catchy tunes with lyrics sure to put a smile on your face. Get ahead of the curve, catch Flipturn while they're still small enough to get front row at.
