New Music Festival Set for MLS Stadiums

June 13, 2013

2013 will be the inaugural year for Breakaway Music Festival, an all-new concert series to be held at Major League Soccer stadiums across the country. Each large-scale event will feature a genre-busting multi-artist bill spanning indie, EDM, pop, hip-hop, and beyond. Each festival date will feature a strong local component, highlighting a thriving local music scene. It's "Your Field. Your Fest."

The festival will kick off on Saturday, September 14 at Ohio's beloved Columbus Crew Stadium, the first soccer-specific stadium ever built for an MLS franchise.It looks like they will definitely be keeping the lineups interesting for this new fest, with this year's acts including Kendrick Lamar, Matt & Kim, Tokyo Police Club, Twenty One Pilots... and Wu-Tang Clan?!? I'm intrigued to see how this develops.

After the Columbus leg, the festival heads down to the FC Dallas Stadium in Frisco, Texas - so don't miss this, Ohio! Not only is this a brand new festival you can be in on for the inaugural year, but it's being run by the Columbus, Ohio- based company Prime Social Group. Ticket presales will begin on June 18 at 11AM EST, with general sales beginning June 21 at 11AM EST.
