Most people who attend the Hangout Music Festival rent a condo or beach house instead of reserving a hotel room.
Condos and houses are often more affordable than hotels because they have multiple bedrooms and you can split the price with friends.
Condos and houses have fully equipped kitchens so you can stock the fridge and freezer with groceries, snacks or cold refreshments. And you can pack less in your suitcase most condos are equipped with a washer and dryer.
Check our lodging page for great offers from our partners.
The Hangout Fest condos page is the best way to find a place to stay during the Festival. When looking for a condo to stay in during the Festival, consider these questions:
No, Camp Hangout is not an overnight camping experience. Stop by during the festival for fun and games.

Each year hundreds of our amazing fans get tricked into buying a wristband or print at home tickets from Craigslist, eBay, or a ticket broker site. Unfortunately, many of these are already used or are counterfeits. Only tickets purchased from Elevate ticketing are considered valid purchases. Your attempt to save cash will probably cost you more money, a lot of trouble and ultimately will keep you from attending the Festival.
And remember, some sneaky people might even try to sell their wristbands to you. However, removal of or tampering with wristband automatically voids it. We check every wristband to make sure it has not been tampered with or removed. You will be caught and you will be escorted directly from the Festival.
There will be a number of ATMs located throughout the Festival.
Due to safety concerns we have an enforced 500 ft NO BOATING ZONE off the Hangout site. However there are miles of beautiful open waters around the site for your boating pleasure.
We hope you don't lose anything at this year's Festival, but if you do, stop by the Hangout Info Booth. Not coming back to The Hangout? You can email email@example.com to inquire about your lost item. Be sure to include the type, brand, color and any additional info you can provide to identify the item.
We make every effort to create a safe environment at the Festival. To ensure this, we have security and medical staff working throughout the Festival. If you're experiencing any problems whatsoever, locate a festival staff member, security guard, or police officer.
If you need medical assistance, seek out the medical tent, or look for a police officer or festival staff member. Please refer to the Festival Map for the exact location of the Medical tents.
