This past weekend saw the return of the Hangout Beach Music and Arts Festival in Gulf Shores, AL, marking the beginning of festival season! While some music fans will be nursing sunburns, others will trek to Chicago for the Electric Daisy Carnival May 24-26.

EDC is known for bringing the world's hottest DJs and electronic artists together under one roof. Some of the performers on this weekend's lineup include: David Guetta, Tiesto, Dirtyphonics, Kaskade, the Bloody Beetroots, Avicii and Empire of the Sun. Before you head out to dance Memorial Day away, here are a few tips to remember: 
  • Stay hydrated! Drink plenty of water at regular intervals throughout EDC.
  • Wear comfortable shoes that are easy to walk and dance in.
  • At EDC, costumes and glow sticks abound, so come prepared to shine!
  • Smile! It will attract potential love interests and new friends who happen to share your passion for flashing :) 

Even if you won't be at EDC, you can still enjoy some of the great music the festival has to offer. Stream our Spotify playlist featuring some of the festival's finest below.
