As we all anxiously await the fest, Honest Tune is teaming up  with Hangout fest to bring a series of videos filmed (in partnership with Relix ) at last year’s inaugural event

We will once again be working with our friends at Relix this year to bring you the most comprehensive coverage of this event, but would rather just see you on the beach. 

Keep an eye on Hangout’s Facebook page for future video updates. Here are the first two that have been released.
