Grand Rapids felt like a natural second city to host the unique Breakaway brand -Jenna Meyer, marketing director of festival co-organizer MiEntertainment Group.

On August 25-26, 2017, festival attendees can break away to Grand Rapids for the two-day event which brings an eclectic lineup to the eco-urban environment of Belknap Park. The venue is conveniently located one mile from downtown and offers natural grass amphitheater hill seating plus panoramic views. In addition, Belknap Park is the largest outdoor concert venue in West Michigan and perfect for the future of this budding festival.
