Later this week, MTV/VH1/CMT will announce the two talented up-and-coming artists that were crowd-sourced to play Hangout Music Fest. These bands were selected by fan voting and an internal committee via MTV/VH1/CMT’s artist platform (Artists.MTV, Artists.VH1, Artists.CMT). One act will play the Thursday Kick-Off Party, while the second will be awarded a Saturday festival slot.
The Hangout Music Fest recently announced the offer of a limited quantity of single-day General Admission tickets for the festival, courtesy of AL.com and Brett-Robinson vacation rentals. In addition to full weekend passes, fans will now be able to purchase tickets for any one of the three action-packed days. Single-day General Admission tickets for May 17, 18 and 19 are on sale now for $89 per day.
