COLUMBUS, Ohio (March 8, 2022) – BREAKAWAY MUSIC FESTIVAL — one of the nation’s largest traveling, multi-genre music festivals — today announced its 2022 calendar that includes return stops to Columbus, Ohio; Grand Rapids, Mich.; and Charlotte, N.C.; along with two new stops, Kansas City, Mo. and California.

“2022 will see Breakaway expand into two amazing regions. With the addition of Kansas City and finally traveling to California, we feel like we’ve truly made a leap to becoming a national brand,” said Breakaway Music Festival Co-founder Adam Lynn. “We’re excited to keep on sharing this amazing experience with more and more fans across the country.”

The festival, founded in 2013, has reached over 1 million music fans with its unique brand that tailors the music festival experience by market through its highly curated lineups that feature some of the biggest names in the industry. Past festival headliners include Grammy–winner Kendrick Lamar,  Multi–platinum artist Halsey, the groundbreaking indie/rock-duo Twenty One Pilots, and Grammy Award–winning artist Chance the Rapper.

“We have steered away from the “cookie cutter” music festival and tailor the Breakaway experience to each city we visit,” added Breakaway Music Co-founder Zach Ruben.  “Each festival is unquestionably unique with its own lineup, attractions and fare.” 

Breakaway Music Festival kicks off its five city tour in Kansas City, Mo. on August 5–6.  Presale tickets for all dates go on sale through Breakaway Music Festival’s Fam Club starting Friday, March 11 at 1o a.m. EST.  For more information about Fam Club, ticketing options and lineup announcements, visit
