Hangout was honored as the best festival of 2011 at the Pollstar Concert Industry Awards on Friday, and the stacked 2012 lineup indicates the young festival may be able to live up to the title a second year. The family-friendly grounds will also feature more space but the same carrying capacity, to improve fans’ comfort and access to facilities.
