Want to play at the Hangout Festival with The Black Keys and Outkast?


This is battle of the bands competition that shouldn't be missed. 

The Hangout Music Festival in Alabama, USA and 92ZEW have paired up for this competition - aptly named as 'Reach for the Beach'. The winner of this battle will get the opportunity to play at this year's festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama, amongst artists such as Outkast, The Black Keys, Queens of the Stone Age, Pretty Lights, The Flaming Lips, Modest Mouse and many more amazing bands. What a lineup to be a part of!


The competition is open to all unsigned acts located anywhere in the state of Alabama, or within 100 miles of Gulf Shores.

If you'd like to enter the competition, you need to head here. Six finalists will then be chosen, and each will play an opening set during the Countdown to Hangout Festival Concert Series - another great opportunity. Each week, finalists will be awarded scores based on a point system, with the final score being a combination of points received from the judges, and the audience attending their Countdown to Hangout Fest show.

The winner will be announced on Monday, May 12.

The Hangout Music Festival will take place from May 16-18.

Get amongst it, and good luck.
