This past weekend, Breakaway Music Festival brought hundreds of youth from around the state to Belknap Park in Grand Rapids to dance and bang their heads to a range of electronic and hip-hop music. Originating in Columbus, Ohio, the festival will also be held in Columbus this September and Charlotte, North Carolina in October with rotating artists. Amongst the twenty-one DJs and performers to take the stage last Friday and Saturday were Zedd, Waka Flocka Flame, RL Grime, and Travis Scott.
