Low ticket warning for 2016 Hangout Music Fest | AL.com

April 29, 2016

Organizers of the 2016 Hangout Music Fest have issued a warning to procrastinators that tickets are running low for the upcoming event.

Festival planners issued a “don’t miss the boat” caution by various social media outlets on Thursday. The message said passes were “running low,” but didn’t specify how close the event was to a sellout. Organizers traditionally don’t release sales numbers but have declared sellouts many years. Last year, it was two days before the festival opened when they tweeted that passes were no longer available.

Beach mayors issue ultimatum: We’re ready to ban booze | AL.com

March 17, 2016

Alabama’s white sands are being inundated with college students, trashed by empty beer cans and littered with broken beach furniture.

Police in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach have broken up crowds of over 1,000, arrested dozens for underage drinking and stepped up DUI patrols. And if Spring Break 2016 doesn’t calm itself very soon, mayors are ready to call for alcohol bans on the beach ahead of 2017.

“I would say there is a probability we will be doing that next year if this trend continues this year,” Gulf Shores Mayor Robert Craft said about an alcohol ban, which would be similar to Panama City Beach’s ban implemented at the end of last year’s calamitous spring break in the Florida city.
