The Breakaway Festival returns this year with a slew of big names at the top of the bill. Rae Sremmurd, on tour in support of their forthcoming sophomore album, and RL Grime, who continues to spread his bunker-busting amalgamation of trap and dance music, will both join Dillon Francis and Young Thug at the event.
The headliners set the tone for a festival that mixes the cutting edge of hip-hop and dance music. Fans can also catch Lil Uzi Vert, Desiigner, and Madeintyo alongside Alison Wonderland and Benny Benassi. A few rogue singers sneak into the lineup as well in the form of Ty Dolla $ign and D.R.A.M. Additional artists have yet to be announced.
“We wanted the 2016 lineup to resonate with a wide audience while still connecting with our core Breakaway community,” said Adam Lynn, co-founder of Prime Social Group, which puts on the event along with Peerless Management. “We’re confident the lineup does just that and are looking forward to celebrating our second year with music fans nationwide.”
Breakaway touches down at the Ohio Expo Center Aug. 26-27. Check out more of the lineup below.
