    Your Field. Your Fest. The first-ever Breakaway Music Festival will take place in both Columbus, Ohio and Dallas, Texas this September.

    It's an all-new concert series presented at Major League Soccer stadiums across the country. Each large-scale event will feature a genre-busting multi-artist bill spanning indie, EDM, pop, hip-hop, and beyond. Each festival date will feature a strong local component, highlighting a thriving local music scene. It's "Your Field. Your Fest."

    Breakaway Music Festival will begin on Saturday, September 14 at Columbus Crew Stadium in Columbus with Bassnectar, Empire of the Sun, Kendrick Lamar, Twenty One Pilots, Tokyo Police Club, ScHoolboy Q and more set to perform.

    The following weekend will see Breakaway off to FC Dallas Stadium in Frisco, Texas on September 21. The performers will include Wu-Tang Clan, Empire of the Sun, Big Gigantic, Matt & Kim, Explosions in the Sky, Juicy J, Ra Ra Riot and more.

    Sounds good to us.

    Time to play our favorite game -- festival organizer! If you could design your own festival, with no parameters or limits, financial or otherwise, who would play it? Where would it be? When?
