Breakaway Music Festival: Mountain Builds Three Unforgettable Festival Weekends

Our expert staging and rigging crew traveled to three US cities to bring the people what they wanted – three weekends of the best EDM and hip-hop under the Breakaway Music Festival moniker.

Breakaway Music Festival kicked off in Grand Rapids, Michigan, before heading to Columbus, Ohio, and wrapping up in Charlotte, North Carolina. Fans looking for a release from everyday life met thousands of friends for an unforgettable weekend stuffed with internationally recognized headliners alongside regional and local artists across the three locations.

Mountain Productions was onsite at all three events, providing our world class event production expertise. We were happy to build the main stages, including extensions and  scaffolding for video screens and audio bays.

We also brought along risers and a DJ table to make sure your favorite artists were seen as equally as they were heard. 1000s of feet of steel barricade, ramps, and other structures were also provided by Mountain Productions, to ensure a safe, fun time for everyone who came out to rage.

Grand Rapids, Michigan

Breakaway Music Festival kicked off the 2017 season in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Mountain Productions transformed Belknap Park into the ultimate festival grounds, featuring the likes of ZEDD, Travis Scott, R.L. Grime and Jon Bellion. This was the first time the event made its way to Michigan and energy levels from the crowd were incredible. 

Columbus, Ohio

Fresh off the success of the first-ever Grand Rapids fest, Breakaway headed home to Columbus, Ohio, for Labor Day weekend. The home city edition featured festival veteran, Travis Scott, accompanied by Lil Yachty, Diplo and Kodak Black.

This was Breakaway Music Festival’s third time in Columbus. The festival helps to contribute to the city’s thriving arts community by bringing some of the world’s biggest names and local artists to MAPFRE Stadium.

Charlotte, North Carolina

Breakaway finished out this festival season with an unbeatable weekend in Charlotte, North Carolina. ZEDD, Lil Dicky and Cheat Codes brought the party to the AvidXchange Music Factory under orange, mid-October skies. The Charlotte festival may have only been one day, but it was an explosion of raw energy and sound to behold.
