Bassnectar will headline this year's Breakaway Festival.

Breakaway Festival 2013

In the grand new tradition of super popular/lucrative music festivals, entertainment company Primal Social Group has wisely decided to get in on the trendy action. PSG will launch its first-ever festival this coming September. Breakaway Music Festival will take place in two locations: in Columbus, OH, and Frisco, TX, on September 14 and 21, respectively. Ambitious from the get-go, organizers are already thinking ahead to next year’s – and the year after’s – event: “By 2014 and 2015, we expect two- and three-day events for both markets. We are going to build this brand year by year,” Adam Lynn, PSG’s Managing Partner, recently told Billboard.

Both the Ohio and Texas affairs will be held in large soccer stadiums (Columbus Crew Stadium and the FC Dallas Stadium), a move Lynn thinks is one of the festival’s greatest strengths. “We are particularly thrilled to bridge the gap between sports culture and the music world with Breakaway,” he said, “I believe this event will break new ground.” At the very least, it’s already broken through to the head of this fall’s music-festival pack, leading with a lineup that includes Bassnectar, Matt & Kim, Kendrick Lamar, Ra Ra Riot, Schoolboy Q, and many others.
