A Few Reasons to “Breakaway”
written by Jennifer Dawn Fall
Enjoy the last weekend of August Ohio style at Breakaway Music Fest, coming up August 26 and 27. Hosted by Prime Social Group at the Ohio Expo Center (hooray for indoors and air conditioning!), the lineup is an eclectic mix of electronic music and hip hop that will satisfy every dancers preference.
I myself am most excited for Benny Benassi, who puts on an amazing set not to be missed, especially by house fanatics. His new album Danceaholic is stellar, and I’m hoping he sprinkles in a mixture of his new tracks with hits like “Satisfaction”—which he only ever teases—from his early years.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/251351132″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
Shy Guy Says, a blend of trap, dubstep, and drum n bass, is also on the bill. If you have never seen this guy live, definitely check out the Smirnoff Silent Disco stage between 5:00 and 6:15 on Saturday. You’ll know you’ve found him when you see a Mario Brothers shy guy mask. He’s on his way to becoming something of a legend in Indianapolis, so if you’ve yet to make a show, you can say you saw him here first![soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/211564873″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
