Hangout Fest

Hangout Fest

Early this summer, I won a trip through working as a Brand Ambassador with pureLyft. I got to take my boyfriend,  and we went to the Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama. This was the most incredible experience!

pureLyft paid for all our travel.  It was extremely easy to relax knowing the expenses were covered. This was an all-inclusive trip that put us up in the most beautiful beachfront condo.

I have been to many festivals before, and this was like nothing I had ever seen. The entire festival took place on the beach. My top favorites playing at the festival included; The Weekend, Calvin Harris, Ellie Goulding, The Chainsmokers, Panic at the Disco, and Walk the Moon.

At the festival, there were seven different stages, countless food stands, and a ton of free entertainment. My favorite spot was Camp Hangout, which had a slip and slide, as well as arts and crafts. However, nothing in the whole festival compared to the VIP area. The VIP area had an open bar, as well as breakfast, lunch, and dinner provided every day. This saved us from spending $10+ on drinks outside of this area.

I know my boyfriend’s favorite part was all the shade and hammocks inside the VIP area, as it was over 90 degrees every day we were there. This section also had seats to see some stages and a pool next to the main stage. Yep, that’s right, I listened to The Weekend play while sitting poolside with an ice-cold beer.

Winning this trip was my best weekend of summer.  I loved spending time listening to my favorite bands and spreading the word about clean caffeine. The last night started with Florence and the Machine playing and ended with a breathtaking firework show, which concluded a perfect weekend.

I cannot thank pureLyft enough for this amazing opportunity, and I would urge Brand Ambassadors to participate in these social media contests, as the prizes are even more amazing than they sound.
