"Who are we going to replace Juice WRLD with?" "LOL we have no money in the budget for that." "Alright, just get the graphic designer to tweak the poster so there's no awkward gap." "Bro, I just told you we have no money."

Gulf Shores closed their public beaches on March 19th. Supposedly until April 6th.
Meanwhile, still quiet on the public Hangout front.
A redditor claiming to be a vendor said they received an email from that an announcement would be made on MAY FIRST. so basically waiting until the last minute, screwing out anybody who booked lodging.
This morning we received notice from the City of Gulf Shores that Hangout 2020 cannot proceed in May due to COVID-19. Rest assured, refunds will be available. After our fastest sellout ever, and what was shaping up to be a banner year on the beach, we are gutted that this is the outcome for all of you, but agree that this is the right decision for the health and safety of everyone involved.
We kindly ask for your patience as we explore all options for a rescheduled festival. Given the rapidly changing landscape of the pandemic, we want to make sure we make the right call and need a little more time. Please know that as we vet all options, your enjoyment and your safety will be our two guiding priorities.
We will make another announcement within a couple weeks with more information, including the transfer & refund process. Until then, please follow all social distancing guidelines, stay safe and healthy, and think of better times when we’ll be on the other side of this thing with the sun on our face and the sand in our toes.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your patience and understanding during this time.
I'm assuming these are all old sets re-aired? I loved that Trey Band set in 2013. If it's the Flaming Lips Dark Side show, I caught that one in 2012 and the 2014 show also. I saw the intro to DMB and stayed for 5 minutes (no hate, just was leaving). I saw Mule in '13, RHCP in 2012 and probably the GCJr show. I drove to Foley to get a peak at Owa a few weeks ago. I ended up going down Highway 59 and actually passed by The Hangout and had to laugh at the caricature it became. It had been 5 years since I went, but we managed to get in most of the prime years (2012-2015 but missed the first 2). I actually have to go to Orange Beach tomorrow to social distance at the beach with my brother and nieces.
Shout out to Baych Bawb who you know is missing that Salty Life
This is really cool of them to do. Depressed I had to cancel the awesome beach house booked, but my wife didn't wanna be those spring breaker kids. Can't blame her. The more ignorance I see when going out now, the more I'd rather do less populated vacation areas.
