Here’s what you need to know

The Breakaway Music Festival is back this year, and fans of the event will be delighted that an extra day has been added to the festivities. The event will take place Friday through Sunday at the Historic Crew Stadium.

Due to public demand for hip-hop, Sunday is dedicated to the genre, said Zach Ruben, one of the founders of the Breakaway Music Festival.

The festival’s hip-hop roots in Columbus run deep, dating back to hosting Kendrick Lamar in 2013, Chance the Rapper in 2016, Travis Scott in 2017 and others. But after going the past year without any hip-hop acts, festival organizers have heard an overwhelming amount of feedback to bring them back. Thus, Sunday, the last day of the event, will be devoted to hip-hop with 21 Savage headlining.

“Our fans said they wanted to see hip-hop, and they missed it last year, so we dedicated an entire day to hip-hop,” Rueben said. “So we have a lot of talent over 3 days.”

The event’s overall lineup is extensive, starting with Friday’s headliner The Chainsmokers, followed by electronic band Griz, headlining Saturday.

Whether you plan to attend one day or all three, here’s what you can expect from the event.
