(Grand Rapids, MI) - Today, MiEntertainment and Prime Social Group announce the highly anticipated lineup for the return of Breakaway Music Festival in Grand Rapids, MI. The two-day festival is set to take place August 24-25.
Breakaway Michigan carefully explores the intersection of hip-hop and electronic music resulting in a supremely curated lineup that includes some of the most impressive names in the industry with festival headliner Odesza on Friday and Khalid to headline Saturday. The lineup also features Borgeous, Flosstradamus, Jaden Smith, Kayzo, Dombresky, Grey, Maxo Kream, Tee Grizzley and more key players to be announced.
Continuing its mission to bring top-notch live music and world-class production to Belknap Park, the two-day event returns with a well-thought out roster of chart-topping artists. Electric music titans and synth-pop wizards Odesza will headline the electronic portion of the bill. With an impressive 2017, Odesza was nominated for not one but two Grammys for the “Best Dance Recording” with Line of Sight and for “Best Dance/Electronic Album” with “A Moment Apart”. Odesza is arguably the most sought out festival headliner for 2018.
Also bringing world-class talent to Grand Rapids is R&B’s breakout vocalist Khalid. At just 19 years old, Khalid received five different Grammy nominations including “Best New Artist”, “Song of the Year” and “Best Music Video” for his feature on 1-800-273-8255, “Best R&B Song” for Location, and “Best Urban Contemporary Album” for his debut studio album American Teen.
Breakaway Music Festival debuted in 2013 in Columbus with names like Kendrick Lamar, Bassnectar and twentyonepilots. The festival expanded to Grand Rapids in 2017 and was nominated for the first-ever “Grandy’s” Award Show for Outstanding Live Music Event. The festival brand has since expanded to five different markets in Dallas, Grand Rapids, Columbus, Charlotte, and Nashville.
"It's great to have Grand Rapids in such good company with other major Breakaway cities. Our goal is to continue to enhance the outdoor live music scene in West Michigan and we believe this lineup is a good step in that direction. We are excited to be back for year two." Chris Meyer of MiEntertainment stated.
