Check out the rest of the dates below…

The Hangout Beach Music and Arts Festival is returning to the Gulf Shores for its annual music festival directly on the beach! If that’s not enticing enough, this festival that boasts four stages including two major ones right on the sand and next to the water in Alabama is a treat for those who enjoy rock, country, soul, bluegrass, funk and blues from national headliners.
Not only can you hear the soothing tides of the ocean at this festival but attendees can also go deep-sea fishing adventure, putter around on a number of championship golf courses, enjoy fresh seafood from a seaside restaurant or build sandcastles on beautiful beaches. The line up is probably the best part though. Check it out after the jump!

The last time The Flaming Lips front man, Wayne Coyne, set out to make a film, it took him seven years. After finally being able to release Christmas On Mars in 2008, it sounds like Coyne has caught the film-making bug. He’s just announced his plans of making another film to Billboard, but will this one take as long?
He gives us an ambivalent answer as he goes into detail about his planning. Also, he’s thinking of snagging Justin Timberlake for a cameo.

Bonnaroo 2010 will be revealing itself to the nation (or world if you’re a international traveler and music fanatic) slowly but sure on February 9. In fact, it’s going to be dragged out so much that Bonnaroo has called the line up unveiling an event – a “virtual event for Bonnaroo fans” are their exact words. If you’d like to discuss the line up as it is announced chunk by chunk in a community other than Twitter, Bonnaroo.com will have a place for you to do so.
However, we already know one of the big acts for Bonnaroo this year. The Flaming Lips had a chat with our friends Spinner and said they will not only will they be playing the Tennessee festival Friday night but they will also be performing their cover album of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety. New Year’s Eve was not the last time for that, after all.
