Breakaway Gears Up for Can’t-Miss Ohio 2024 Festival With John Summit, Kaskade, Tiësto and More | May 25, 2024

Ahead of the long-awaited return of Breakaway Music Festival Ohio presented by Celsius Energy in just one week, the festival’s organizers are gearing up to present an electrifying weekend with headlining performances by some of dance music’s most celebrated artists.

Since its launch in Columbus in 2016, Breakaway has grown significantly and cemented itself as the nation’s largest multi-city touring festival. After attracting roughly 100,000 attendees in last year, the festival’s 2024 return to Ohio will take place at the Historic Crew Stadium from May 31st to June 1st and tickets are on sale now.

That timing marks a big change considering they moved the festival up in order to usher in the summer after it historically took place in August, closer to fall.

This year’s lineup boasts an array of established and rising talents alike, featuring 20 nationally recognized artists and four local acts. Headlining the two-day event are John Summit, Tiësto, Two Friends and Kaskade, the lattermost of whom will deliver a special sunset performance.

Attendees can also look forward to sets by Cassian, Dr. Fresch, Jessica Audiffred, Nora En Pure, Habstrakt, PEEKABOO and Trivecta, as well as a rare B2B set between Claptone and Dombresky. Not to mention a performance by Class of 2022 star ACRAZE, whose recent single “Runny Nose” is currently catapulting up Beatport’s Bass House chart.

Despite the star-studded lineup, the fest’s culture remains dedicated to nurturing rising local talent, as they have also invited Ohio locals BAXTER, Sons and Vodenik to join the festivities. Check out the full lineup below.

Just like every year, Breakaway Ohio is slated to provide an all-encompassing festival experience with it’s Silent Disco presented by Monaco featuring over 40 local DJs, as well as various brand activations and unique fan experiences.

On a macro level, Breakaway continues to expand its reach in 2024 with its largest tour to date, which includes stops in new markets like Tampa and Minnesota along with returning events in Kansas City, Michigan, Charlotte and the Bay Area.
