Breakaway Festival is right around the corner! We are thrilled to bring you the perfect pregame playlist to get you hyped up for the weekend in Boston! Don’t worry, it’s not too late to join in on the action. You can still secure tickets for this epic event on the Breakaway Festival website.

Taking place at the brand new Stage at Suffolk Downs just north of Downtown Boston, Breakaway Festival is taking the city by storm. With massive headliners, including Lane 8, Porter Robinson, Tchami, Knock 2, GRiZ, Madeon, and Elderbrook, the two-day festival is looking to make waves in the northeast. Additionally, Forester, Evan Giia, Gashi, Surf Mesa, SiskoNight Tales, and dozens of Silent Disco acts will be gracing our ears this weekend in Boston.

The festival will be held at Suffolk Downs; formerly a major horse racing venue and now a converted musical masterpiece. The hype around this venue has been building over the past four years since it held its final race and the city of Boston will finally reap the rewards of the massive overhaul as gates open for the first time as a music venue this weekend!



Lane 8 will guide you through a captivating deep house journey, featuring soul-stirring tracks from his latest album, “Reviver.” Prepare to immerse yourself in his melodious constructions and pulse-pounding beats.

Porter Robinson

Porter Robinson, celebrated for his intimate live performances and iconic studio albums, Spitfire, Worlds, and Nurture, should blend an array of Virtual self-anthems, live edits, and dance classics in his DJ set, ensuring a night where the sole mandate is to dance. Keep in mind, this is no typical Porter set, he is known to keep the energy high and beats knocking during his DJ sets.


Tchami is the perfect addition to this lineup for anyone seeking an exuberant party experience. The French house prodigy, renowned for transforming dance tracks into explosive, unforgettable tunes, promises to take you on a rhythmic voyage straight to church that will unleash your inner party enthusiast.



Fresh from touring two consecutive, electrifying albums and many a special event, GRiZ, the seasoned festival mastermind, will set The Stage ablaze with laser-infused rhythms, future funk grooves, and psychedelic artistry. His live saxophone, surprise guest appearances, and awe-inspiring drops guarantee a night of relentless movement and euphoria.


Madeon is primed to unleash his enchanting DJ wizardry on Saturday night. With a musical journey spanning over a decade, we expect him to artfully weave samples from legendary dance tracks with bursts of his own unmistakable genius. Madeon is coming up on a massive milestone in his musical journey as he plans to close out his Good Faith Forever set later as he prepares for his next era of music.


Elderbrook is a multi-talented artist often likened to the caliber of Rüfüs Du Sol and Odezsa, who will lead you through an utterly unique blend of power ballads from his sophomore album Little Love. He is sure to catapult you into a state of electric euphoria that unlocks your inner light.
