The hits just keep on coming for those lucky enough to have tickets to this year's Hangout Music Festival. Today, the third-year festival, headlined by the likes of String Cheese Incident, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jack White, The Flaming Lips and STS9, announced the official pre-party featuring a slew of talented acts that won't be on the festival's main bill.
Big Gigantic, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, BoomBox, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Perpetual Groove, Zoogma, Nobody Beats the Drum, Delta Rae, The Kingston Springs and Tauk will get the weekend started right on May 17, just one day before the main event.

Additionally, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeroes have been added to the main bill making this year's festival, once again, the most diverse and top-heavy festival out there. Tickets for The Hangout are sold out through the main website but apparently a small allotment of tickets are still available for purchase through Kaiser Realty for $209.00 plus taxes and fees if you decide to stay in one of their beach-front condos.
Tickets to the pre-party will be available via the festival's website today, Friday March 23, for only $15.00. For full lineup information for The Hangout and all your favorite summer festies check out our 2012 Festival Guide. See ya on the beach!
