The first annual Hangout Beach Music and Arts Festival has come to a close in Gulf Shores, AL after a tumultuous final day that saw the fairgrounds evacuated for two hours due to heavy storms. When the festival grounds reopened, promoters sent out word that entry would be free to all comers leading to about 15,000 attendees according to AL.com’s Ryan Dezember.

Trey Anastasio and Classic TAB closed the action on the main stage with a set littered with bust outs in the form of covers and new originals. Big Red and his ensemble tackled a tune Tom Marshall helped him write especially for the occasion called Sailboat Man that was performed in what Trey described as “a Reggae Stylie.”
The group also debuted a song named Burn That Bridge and dusted off two covers – The Band’s It Makes No Difference last played on May 14, 2005 and The Devil Went Down To Georgia by the Charlie Daniels Band last played at Bonnaroo ’04 during this one-off performance.
