The founder of the Hangout Music Fest and a top Gulf Shores official both downplayed reports suggesting major conflict with the festival, saying that the festival is actively working to hear and address an undercurrent of community complaints.
Festival founder Shaul Zislin said he acknowledged that there are some “legitimate complaints,” particularly when it came to festival patrons parking illegally, sleeping in cars or encroaching on private property. “You can’t put on an event this big without there being some side effects,” he said.
Zislin said his view is that despite such problems, the festival is a positive thing for Gulf Shores overall. Organizers were already in the process of submitting details to the city of how they plan to cut down on the grievances, he said. They also planned to hold a community meeting Thursday evening at Big Beach Brewing, in an effort to communicate directly on the issues. Zislin said he expected it to be the first of several, as he and a management team at AEG Live’s New Orleans-based Winter Circle Productions develop their 2020 game plan.
Brown said festival organizers are making “good strides” toward improvement.
“The concerns include the loud noise permeating through the residential neighborhood because of the event, and so there are ways the festival is, through technology, able to re-align and aim some of the sound,” he said.
Festival crowds and traffic also cause problems, he said. “There’s a lot of illegal parking on private property, there’s trespass issues, all those things that go on when you dump a whole lot of people in a small area. They’re having to address those issues and giving those residents down there, particularly, relief from that. Those are the types of things being asked of the festival to address.”
Juice Wrld was scheduled to be part of Hangout 2020 before his death.
