(COLUMBUS, OH) － Today, Prime Social Group announces the daily schedules and local artist additions for the highly anticipated return of Breakaway Music Festival in Columbus, OH. The three-day festival is set to take place August 24-26 at MAPFRE Stadium.
Breakaway Columbus carefully explores the intersection of hip-hop and electronic music resulting in a supremely curated lineup that includes some of the most impressive names in the industry with pop-sensations and electronic music favorites like Halsey, Khalid to headline and Quinn XCII, Gryffin, Chris Lake, Drezo, London On Da Track, London Richards, GG Magree, and Charlotte Lawrence taking the stage on Friday. Going into day two, Odesza and Kaskade will be headlining Saturday, with Rich the Kid, Kayzo, Dombresky, Ekali, Jack Harlow, Phantoms, Smokepurpp, GASHI, Yung Pinch, and Loud Luxury to precede. Closing out the weekend will be world-renowned rap-trio Migos with Flosstradamus, Flatbush Zombies, Jaden Smith, Jai Wolf, Grey, Shoreline Mafia, Nessly, Elohim, Shallou, Blaise Moore, Livvia, and Rarri set to perform on Sunday.
In addition to the daily lineups, PSG has also announced the addition of some of the most talented artists in the area. Performing Friday will be Sar3hob, The Emperor Chaz, Uhziz, Effee, and Tae and The Waves; Blush, MOUF Worldwide, Vaance, Emogee, KMB, Cryztal Gridz, and Wrex on Saturday; and Giovanny, Jayswifa, iB-Rease, The Harley Boys, and Lil Loski on Sunday.
“We feel as if this is the most diverse and talented group of regional and local acts that we’ve had a chance to shed light on this year. We are really looking forward to giving these artists a chance to share the stage with some of the world’s hottest acts,” Artist Relations Coordinator Tyler Blind said.
Breakaway Columbus will continue its mission to bring top-notch lineups and next level production to Columbus with its well-thought-out-roster of chart-topping artists. Electropop star and iHeartRadio’s 2018 Female Artist of the Year Halsey will close out the first night of the festival. After being nominated at the 2017 Grammys for her collab “Closer” with The Chainsmokers, the multi-platinum pop maverick has seen huge success as a standalone artist this year with her first album Hopeless Fountain Kingdom already topping the US Billboard 200 and Billboard Hot 100.
Electric music titans and synth-pop wizards Odesza will headline the electronic portion of the bill on Saturday night. With an impressive 2017, Odesza was nominated for not one but two Grammys for the “Best Dance Recording” with Line Of Sight and for “Best Dance/Electronic Album” with “A Moment Apart”. Odesza is arguably the most sought out electronic festival headliner for 2018.
Also bringing world-class talent to Columbus is hip-hop’s breakout trio Migos who will close out the festival on Sunday. Ending 2017 as BET’s “Best Group” and “Best Collaboration” for Bad and Boujee ft. Lil Uzi Vert, Migos has already taken 2018 by storm with the drop of their studio album “Culture II” and three Billboard Music Award nominations including Best Duo, Top Rap Artist, and Top Rap Album.
On top of that, Breakaway Music Festival is bringing out special guests Khalid on Friday and Kaskade on Saturday. At just 19 years old, Khalid received five different Grammy nominations including “Best New Artist”, “Song of the Year” and “Best Music Video” for his feature on 1-800-273-8255, “Best R&B Song” for Location, and “Best Urban Contemporary Album” for his debut studio album American Teen. Electronic music veteran Kaskade has been one of the biggest names in EDM for the last decade, voted “America’s Best DJ” twice by DJ Times and six separate Grammy nominations with tracks like Runaway (U&I) (Kaskade Remix) and Only.
Coming in 2018, Breakaway Music Festival will not only return to Columbus but it will also touch down in Grand Rapids’ Belknap Park Aug. 24-25, Charlotte’s AvidXchange Music Factory Oct. 12-13, will expand to Nashville’s Bicentennial Capitol Mall Oct. 5-6, and just took place in Dallas’ Toyota Music Factory in April.
