BMI returned to its original location at Hangout Music Festival over the weekend to showcase 15 talented up-and-coming acts on the Mermaid stage in Gulf Shores, Alabama. 

The weekend started strong with a funk-filled set from Luthi and never slowed down with performances from Welshly Arms, R.LUM.R, BONES and more over the course of the weekend. BMI wrapped this year’s festival on Sunday with massive crowds packing the centrally-located stage for high-energy sets from MAX, rock-quartet Greta Van Fleet and singer-songwriter Anderson East. 

Since 2013, BMI has hosted a number of rising stars on the Hangout stage, including Halsey, The Revivalists, Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit, Daya, A R I Z O N A, Elle King, St. Paul and the Broken Bones and Shakey Graves.
