Our Festival is seeking proposals from local artists for exciting large-scale installations and murals that will spotlight local talent and shape the Breakaway experience for fans throughout the festival site.

creativity is in our DNA

Breakaway developed and grew out of the desire to break free from the status quo. We got to where we are because we met some epic people along the way that had an open mind to our ideas and our art, and we want to do the same for creatives in the communities we touch.

The Breakaway Collective is a community that encourages artists with a guiding light to follow their own unique internal compass. Our goal is to feature art at our festivals as a way to look at all sides of the story that allow us to break free, always delivering ways to have an enthusiasm for life through the power of music, art and creativity.

Selected designs for KC, Michigan, and Columbus will be announced June 28th, 2022. North Carolina and California will be announced by July 1st.

our inspiration

Breakaway seeks proposals from local artists for large impactful moments that resonate with fans on the festival site. Examples include: Entry Gate, Breakaway branded structure, Oversized Main Photo Moment or Fixture, Backdrops, Entry Archways, Lighting installations, Murals, and Creative Entertainment.

For large installations or builds, Artists can create designs that can be affixed to a scaffolding, which the festival producer will fabricate and install based on the artist’s design.
