Here’s Everyone We Chilled With At This Year’s Hangout Festival

We came, we saw, we mellowed out

This year's Hangout Festival was unlike any other. Not only were we blessed with a stacked, star-studded lineup that boasted the likes of Kendrick Lamar, SZA, Halsey, and other faves, but we had the opportunity to turn down for once and enjoy the Alabama sun, sand, and some cute (albeit large) flamingo floats.

No shade to any upcoming events, but Hangout is going to be tough to beat. What other fest do you know that has a roller disco, wedding chapel, and puppy kissing booth?

Needless to say, our standards for all our summer festivities are pretty high. Take a trip down memory lane in our slideshow, below, and please, don't mind our post-festival sadness as we count down until next year's fest.
