It looks like this year's Hangout Festival is primed to have more than one Grammy-winning performer hit the stage. We already saw one massive, amazing slate of acts hit the Web -- including Grammy Album of the Year winner Beck -- and now we have a whole lot more. Among them? The man who won all of the Grammys himself: Sam Smith.
If you weren't already convinced what an amazing idea it is to spend three days -- May 15, 16 and 17 -- on the shores of Alabama, the below list of musicians should get you packing. Smith, Tove Lo, Jeff the Brotherhood -- and we thought that passel of performers we previously announced was awe-inspiring. Read and weep.
That's what Sam would want.
If you don't know Sam Smith, you've been snoozing under a stone -- a stone that his heavenly angel voice would STILL be able to penetrate. Start practicing your "Stay With Me" sway now.
One of 2014's true breakouts, Swedish songstress Tove Lo somehow makes the endless spiral into breakup-fuelled, debauched sadness sound like a dance party.
A throwback to New York's golden age sound -- without sacrificing the truths of his own post-millenium adolescence -- Joey Bada$$ has quickly become on of the Big Apple's most exciting young MCs. Now he's ready to shake up the South.
Get way dreamy on the Gulf Shores with North Carolina electropop act Sylvan Esso. Try not to float out to sea on the vibez.
Female-fronted, kick-you-in-the-ass, old-school rock 'n' roll? Yes, please. Deap Vally is sure to get all the beach bums into the moshpit.
Speaking of moshing, the pit is sure to be all elbows and sweat during this band of bros from Tennessee's set.
Meanwhile, in the dance tent, SNBRN will get you moving in a much more flow-y -- but no less frenetic -- swirl of limbs.
This Tennessee garage/punk/rock act have a distinct Southern charm. We would like to eat Oyster Po'Boys while watching their set -- for some reason.
North Carolina's own Seth Kauffman is ready to bring his self-described "lo-fi Carolina funk" to the beach. We are equally ready to partake.
Alabama natives Firekid welcome us to their homeland with some old-fashioned, roaring, country-tinged rock 'n' roll.
This Nashville band of boys will have you waving your hands in the air like you just care too much. Too much. But in a good way.
