Here are the directions:

take 59 to the intersection of 180 (Fort Morgan Rd) and turn left (east) as if you were going to the Gulf shores Walmart.  But go straight into Gulf State Park.  About a block or so after you enter the park, on your left (North side of the road) you will see a sign which says Park Headquarters. that's the spot.

The Hangout Music Festival is an annual 3-day event held on the public beaches of Gulf Shores directly accompanying its sister restaurant The Hangout.  This is a ticketed event. They start setting up about a week prior to the event but the beach is still open during set up.  This isn’t a time that you would want to try to head for the Gulf Shores public beach as they have it closed off where 59 dead ends into The Hangout. A good time to stay off of 59 heading south. This event is attended by about 40,000 people.  Just wanted to give everyone a heads up.
