“Our focus with the lineup is to curate a unique blend between pop, hip-hop and dance music,” said Jenna Meyer of event promoter MiEntertainment Group, adding that the 2019 festival will feature some new vendors.
The all-ages festival will run 4-11 p.m. Friday and 3-11 p.m. Saturday.

Breakaway – which started in Columbus, Ohio, in 2013 – now stages music festivals in four cities: Columbus and Grand Rapids on Aug. 23-24, Charlotte, N.C., on Oct. 4-5 and Nashville, Tenn., Oct. 11-12.
Held for the first time in Grand Rapids in 2017 with stars such as Travis Scott and Zedd – and billed as the largest outdoor festival ever held in Grand Rapids – the second-year event drew even bigger throngs of thousands for headliners Odesza and Khalid, along with many other acts.
