Hangout Music Festival
Date: May 18-20, Gulf Shores, Ala.
Corporate backer: General Motors (GM)
Anheuser-Busch InBev, Microsoft (MSFT) Xbox and Sirius XM (SIRI) are helping the bros bro up this brodown, but GM's Chevrolet gets top billing when Umphrey's McGee, Dispatch, The String Cheese Incident and Red Hot Chili Peppers take the stage. The $159 to $209 three-day passes are sold out, but an $849 VIP pass gets free beer and drinks, early access, private restrooms and entry to the main stage VIP swimming pools when the pope of aging frat boys, Dave Matthews, takes the stage with his band on the festival's last day.
