During the segments, The Hangout Music Fest partnered with Alabama Gulf Seafood to air Alabama Gulf Seafood TV spots during its national premiere.

“The Alabama Seafood Marketing Commission is working hard to reinforce the vitality of Alabama’s seafood industry, and its importance to the state’s overall economic health,” said Chris Blankenship, director of Marine Resources and program administrator for the Alabama Seafood Marketing Commission. “The Hangout gave this state an incredible gift when owner Shaul Zislin conceptualized the Hangout Music Fest. To have 35,000 people come down to the Gulf this past May, to have them see it, breathe it, taste it, and live it makes for an unforgettable experience.”

Palladia can be viewed on Direct TV HD Ch. 572, Dish Network Ch. 369, ATT U-Verse Ch. 1505, Verizon FiOs Ch. 711, and some cable systems (check for availability).
