January 20, 2015

GULF SHORES, Ala. — Robert Craft is at ease sitting in his office on a pretty January afternoon, two stories up, blinds open to reveal trees still green thanks to the subtropical climate of the Gulf Coast. But his thoughts, at least today, are on a weekend in May. Ten weekends in May, in fact. At the Jan. 12 City Council meeting, the panel unanimously approved an extension for the Hangout Music Festival, which will include the involvement of major music festival player Goldenvoice, for 10 years through the 2025 event.
