(COLUMBUS, OHIO) — Today, Prime Social Group announces the complete 2018 calendar for its signature Breakaway Music Festival in Dallas, TX; Columbus, OH; Grand Rapids, MI; Charlotte, NC; and, for the first time, Nashville, TN. Also for the first time, PSG has added another day to both the Columbus and Charlotte events, expanding Breakaway Columbus to a 3-day festival and Charlotte to a 2-day festival.
Prime Social Group is one of the fastest growing festival promoters in North America, bringing the biggest hip-hop and EDM talent to fill venues of tens of thousands in America’s heartland markets. In 2018, PSG will produce ten festivals under the Breakaway, Prime, Haunted Fest, and #FEST brands.
“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, which 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,” Managing Partner Adam Lynn explained.
Breakaway festivals have played host to hip-hop heavyweights like Chance the Rapper, visionary and Grammy-winner Kendrick Lamar, Billboard chart-topping Rae Sremmurd, Grammy Nominated Lil Uzi Vert and Travis Scott, and Atlanta-Trap star Playboi Carti. PSG has also hosted explosive hip-hop stars like Blackbear, Lil Yachty, Young Thug, Desiigner, and D.R.A.M. among many others.
EDM bookings at Breakaway have included Grammy-winner Zedd, international superstars Galantis and Diplo, traplord 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 masked house aficionado Malaa as well as Oliver Heldens, Gryffin and many more. The 2018 festival lineups will be announced in the coming weeks.
Locations for Breakaway festivals are always carefully chosen. Breakaway Music Festival will return to Dallas at the Toyota Music Factory (4/7), Grand Rapid’s Belknap Park (8/24 – 8/25), Columbus’ MAPFRE Stadium (8/24 – 8/26) Charlotte’s AvidXchange Music Factory (10/12 – 10/13) and will debut in-front of the State Capitol in Nashville’s’ Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park (10/5 – 10/6).
Pre-sale tickets will be available beginning 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. Early bird tickets will go on sale to the general public Friday, March 30 at NOON EST. Only multi-day tickets will be available, with single day tickets on sale at a later date.
