Breakout Festival is the only Canadian bi-annual all hip-hop festival, so you know we had to make a trip. A ticket to the festival includes access to Playland, a carnivalesque area with over 35 rides (we loved the ferris wheel). We saw EVERYTHING, but these 4 acts stood out the most.
Icy queen Saweetie wow’d the crowd. Every part of her performance was on point. The choreography made you dance along. She called out fans wearing the icy chain and screaming all the words. Watching her explode in the music scene is fun.
A legend forever, A$AP Rocky knows how to build anticipation for his set. A white curtain covered the stage as he performed the first song. The curtain dropped, revealing babushka boi in his iconic yellow bandana ready to rage with the crowd.
Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi are always ready to party. Listening to ‘Sunflower’ as the sun set behind the stage was incredible. Their high energy set definitely wrapped up the weekend perfectly.
There isn’t a single show Lil Skies doesn’t absolutely kill. He pumps up a crowd with ease. Feeding off the energy, he gets crazier as his set progresses. Skies climbed up one of the rafters and finished out his set. We love seeing fans go crazy for Lil Skies.
Timbre Concerts and Crescendo 1 plan the sickest bi-annual hip-hop festival in Canada. You can check out video recaps and tons of other incredible content from Breakout Festival here. We’re so excited to come out again for their winter festival!
