Gulf Shores – Hangout 2018

Great bands, great festival.

Song Recommendation – We Used to Vacation – Cold War Kids.

The Killers, Foster the People, Bleachers and my all time favourite band, the Cold War Kids.

Hangout 2018 had a really good line-up, and so I was inspired to make a detour to Gulf Shores, Alabama. The festival was literally on the beach, and it was awesome.

I flew into Pensacola, Florida, and then made the journey across the state line, in a shuttle, to Alabama.

It was a bit weird being at a music festival alone, although everyone was pretty friendly, and it didn’t stop me from rocking out to my favourite bands.

While I was at the festival I got an email from a lady who worked for the event, who wanted me to do a short interview because I was all the way from New Zealand. I am ashamed to say that I ghosted her (new context, same meaning).

I had a great few days. I found a tent that sold amazing Korean noodles, which I had at least five times during the three day event, and I bought some Cold War Kids Merch (a t-shirt) that I had been wanting to get for over ten years. . .

After three days of great music it was time to depart the beautiful beaches of the Gulf Shores.

The last stop in my trip was the U.S capital, Washington, D.C.
