Reach for the Beach to Play Hangout Finalists Announced

Hangout Fest - foo fighters

92ZEW is getting a regional, unsigned band to open up Hangout Fest on the mainstage.

Just think, playing on stage for a big audience, playing in the sand, and getting great exposure at a world-class festival.  

Thanks to Hangout Festival organizers for this great opportunity for our regional artists.

We received a plethora of great packages from talented, regional artists.  Final decisions were tough ones.  But after much ballyhooing & belly aching among the judges, the six challengers have been chosen, and some will open for national recording artists in our Countdown to Hangout Fest Free Concert Series.

Last year’s winner, Gulf Coast Blues Boy Jamell Richardson will kick off the Countdown series Apr. 17 at the Soul Kitchen.
