Music festival featuring several big names is coming to Charlotte this fall – Charlotte Observer (blog)
For whatever reason, Charlotte hasnât hosted many music festivals in recent years. Thatâs about to change in October, when the Breakaway Music Festival comes to the AvidXChange Music Factory.
The festival will be headlined by Zedd, the popular electronic dance music DJ. Other performers include Little Dicky, 3LAU, Blackbear, Kyle and Cheat Codes, known for the recent âNo Promisesâ with Demi Lovato.
Breakaway, which is held in Michigan in August and in Ohio in September, takes place Oct. 14 at the lot adjacent to AvidXchangeâs new headquarters in the Music Factory.
Charlotte was chosen as the festivalâs third 2017 location because the city has a âmusic loving, open-minded and intelligent mix of young professionalsâ that resonate well with the festivalâs brand,â according to Adam Lynn, managing partner of Prime Social Group, the Ohio group that produces the festival.
General admission festival tickets start at $50 and are available on the festivalâs website.
The festivalâs after party will be held at World, the new 21,000 square-foot nightclub in the Music Factory thatâs taking the place of Label Charlotte, said World owner Gennaro Vitale, who also runs Kandy Bar uptown.
