FlyPaper is proud to announce the highly anticipated lineup of Breakaway Music Festival, curtesy of Prime Social Group and Peerless Management. Set to take place on August 26-27, 2016 at the Ohio Expo Center, the festival returns with an eclectic lineup including a carefully curated mix of world class performing artists.
Headlining acts Dillon Francis, Rae Sremmurd, RL Grime and Young Thug will call Ohio home for an exhilarating weekend along with Ty Dolla $ign, Alison Wonderland, Benny Benassi, The Bloody Beetroots (SBCR DJ Set), Waka Flocka Flame, Madeintyo, Desiigner, Gryffin, Lil Uzi Vert, Skizzy Mars, Hippie Sabotage, Lost Kings, Elephante, Ookay, Prince Fox, D.R.A.M., Jerreau and Cheat Codes. More artists, including an additional Saturday headliner, will be announced soon.
“We wanted the 2016 lineup to resonate with a wide audience while still connecting with our core Breakaway community,” said Adam Lynn, cofounder of Prime Social Group. “We’re confident the lineup does just that and are looking forward to celebrating our second year with music fans nationwide.”
Breakaway’s 2016 lineup shows a well-crafted and powerful range of Billboard chart-topping acts. Rae Sremmurd, known for platinum singles “No Type” and “No Flex Zone,” and Young Thug, who has quickly risen through the ranks of rap music with his “Slime Season” mixtape series, top the hip hop marquee.
Dillon Francis, whose signature moombahton sound and quirky personality have made him one of today’s most prolific DJs, will headline Friday night. Also rounding out the electronic portion of the bill is RL Grime, who is arguably trap music’s flagship DJ/producer with his impressive catalog of singles and remixes including the recently released “Aurora.”
“This two-day festival allows us all to break away from the rigors of everyday responsibilities and enjoy an elevated experience with an expanded venue, VIP amenities and an incredible lineup,” said Zach Ruben, cofounder of Prime Social Group.
Advanced ticketing is now on sale. Two-day GA tickets start at $85 and two-day VIP tickets start at $150. Single-day and additional options are also available at breakawayfestival.com. This event is ALL AGES. For the latest information, follow Breakaway on social media.
