Promoters announced today that the two-day festival will return to the city’s Belknap Park Aug. 28-29, with the lineup expected to be revealed in coming months.
In addition, Breakaway – which has hosted music festivals in Columbus, Nashville, Grand Rapids and Charlotte, N.C. – announced that it’s expanding to two more cities for 2020: Washington D.C. (Sept. 25-26) and San Diego (Nov. 13-14).
“Our mission has always been to provide real fans with a true music festival experience, at a price they can actually afford,” Adam Lynn, Breakaway co-founder, said in a prepare statement.
“We’re thrilled to bring Breakaway back for 2020 and even more so to expand our presence into the San Diego and Washington D.C. markets. Stay tuned for lineups and programming in the next couple of months.”
Although the lineup remains under wraps, Breakway did announce a partnership with global clubbing and hospitality leader Drai’s Las Vegas to provide “an elevated Breakaway VIP experience across all festival locations. The experience will provide the same attention to the VIP guest experience that it does at its premiere Beachclub and nightclubs in Las Vegas and Dubai.”

Last year, the Grand Rapids’ version of Breakaway – billed as the largest outdoor music festival ever held in the city – starred Kaskade, Wiz Khalifa, Louis the Child, Big Gigantic, Troyboi, Blackbear and more. Previous years have featured the likes of Odesza, Khalid, Travis Scott and Zedd, as well as local DJs/producers.
Earlier this year, another festival was added to the Belknap Park calendar for 2020: The heavy metal and hard rock Upheaval Festival will debut at the park July 17-18 with stars such as Disturbed, Staind, Skillet, HELLYEAH, Chevelle and Avatar.
Lansing-based concert promoter MiEntertainment Group has co-produced Breakaway with Ohio’s Prime Social Group, and will co-produce Upheaval with Wisconsin promoter WGA Entertainment.
