We are but a few days away from the coolest party of the summer. Come Friday, May 15, thousands of folks will gather on the beaches of Gulf Shores, Alabama, to get up, get down, and party at Hangout Fest 2015. It’s the only festival to be held on an actual beach, which automatically puts any spring break experience to shame because, well, spring break.

This year, over 50 acts will take the stage over the festival’s three-day run. If that sounds a little overwhelming, it’s because it is—it so awesomely is. One simply cannot see them all, but with a lineup as diverse as this year’s, there’s enough aural stimulation to please everyone. Just be sure to make time for the following 10 artists. Because hey, life’s a beach; might as well make the most of it.
