HangOut in the UK - Festival of the Hang

Bringing together from all corners of the world lovers of the Hang, hand pans, and music in general is ‘HangOut (in the) UK’, a small but growing music festival held in ‘Surrey’, in the Southeast of England.  Hosted at ‘Mellow Farm’, a small family run farm on the beautiful Hampshire-Surrey border alongside the River Wey, Mellow Farm is set on a sandy heathland formed of grasslands and wooded areas.

Held towards the end of September the HangOut (in the) UK festival features live performances, jams, open mics, and workshops, allowing people of all levels to come along and enjoy the beauty of the Hang, and learn some new techniques.

The 2010 HangOut (in the) UK Hang festival featured performances by: ‘David Swarupe’, ‘Curt Ceunen (The Tipsy Gipsy)’, and ‘Anne Malone’, amongst others.  And tickets for the 2011 festival go on sale in February.
