Breakaway Music Festival Announces Headliners

Prime Social Group just announced that Dillon Francis, Young Thug, RL Grime and Rae Sremmurd will headline Breakaway Music Festival in Columbus, OH August 26-27. The event will take place at the Ohio Expo Center. 


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,

“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. “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, co-founder of Prime Social Group.

To celebrate the lineup announcement of Breakaway, PSG & PMG encourage everyone to join us at Dahlia Bar & Lounge for a happy hour 6-8 PM on Tuesday, June 14. First drink is on us!
