Breakaway Music Festival’s venue, the Ohio Expo Center, provides a unique indoor/outdoor footprint that includes both the Lausche Building (same venue at Haunted Fest) as well as the outdoor area outside of it.
Lausche Building is located on the Mapfre Stadium (formerly Columbus Crew Stadium) side of 17th Street. It is a 52,000 square foot building that commonly hosts events like the Quarter Horse Commons and more. It’s large, spacious interior is perfect for a massive stage and production, and will give you plenty of room to dance. We’ve chosen this building as part of the venue for Breakaway 2016 due to the potential transformation of the area, as well as massive size to host huge name artists and plenty of concert-goers. Because of it’s huge interior, it gives us the ability to provide plenty of amenities, as well as plenty of room for customization.
The large area right outside of Lausche Building is perfect for hosting a main stage and the massive amounts of festival-goers it attracts. It also will house plenty of vendors and experiential activations that will only enhance your time at Breakaway while still providing you plenty of room to feel comfortable.
Additionally, a Silent Disco featuring a well-crafted lineup of both international and local electronic artists will give you the opportunity for a big festival feel in an intimate space.
Food and beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) will be served at Breakaway.
