Breakaway 2018 Calendar
Prime Social Group announces the 2018 calendar with a couple of surprises. This year’s Breakaway Music Festival debuts in Texas on April 7. The festival then visits Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, and North Carolina in August and October. For the first time, PSG plans to expand Columbus Breakaway to a 3-day festival, as well as Charlotte to a 2-day festival.
The 2018 line-up will be announced in the coming weeks. Previously, Breakaway festivals have hosted hip-hop heavyweights including Chance the Rapper, Grammy-winner Kendrick Lamar, Billboard chart-topping Rae Sremmurd, Grammy-nominated Lil Uzi Vert and Travis Scott, and Atlanta-Trap star Playboi Carti. Prime Social Group has also hosted explosive hip-hop stars like Blackbear, Lil Yachty, Young Thug, Desiigner, and D.R.A.M. among many others.
Previously, EDM bookings at Breakaway have also included Grammy-winner Zedd, international superstars Galantis and Diplo, trap-lord RL Grime, Australia’s Empire of the Sun, bass-god Bassnectar, Dillon Francis, the Electronic Music Awards ‘Artist of the Year’ Alison Wonderland, “Worlds” mastermind Porter Robinson, OWSLA queen Mija, and house aficionado Malaa as well as Oliver Heldens, Gryffin and many more.
The Hype Is Real
Managing partner Adam Lynn made the following statement about the anticipated festival:
We started this festival by combining urban living with a carefully curated, multi-genre lineup that festival-goers of all ages and music preferences could enjoy. After just four years, Breakaway Columbus has grown into a large-scale festival home to over 25,000 attendees.
It has inspired us to spread the festival brand to other markets. Every city could use their own festival to call home— we’re really excited for what the future looks like.
Breakaway Music Festival has always been very selective in its venue choices. This year, the festival will return to Dallas at the Toyota Music Factory, Grand Rapid’s Belknap Park, Columbus’ MAPFRE Stadium, and Charlotte’s AvidXchange Music Factory. It will also journey to the front of the State Capitol in Nashville’s’ Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park.
Pre-sale tickets are available Thursday, March 29 at noon EST and will last for 24 hours. Ticket buyers of all last year’s Breakaway Festivals will receive an access code via email before the pre-sale begins. In addition, early-bird tickets will go on sale to the public Friday, March 30 at noon EST. While only multi-day tickets will be available at that time, single-day tickets go on-sale closer to the festival date.
