After a challenging first year, Breakout will be making a return to Vancouver.

Event organizers Timbre Concerts and CRESCENDO1 have announced that this June, the all hip-hop festival will be coming back to the PNE Amphitheatre.

“After two successful inaugural events in 2018 (Breakout Festival and WINTER Breakout), Breakout Festival returns for its second outdoor festival and will feature some of the hottest artists in hip-hop alongside some of Vancouver’s most promising rising acts.”

A festival lineup and ticket information have yet to be announced, but no matter who they bring in, they’ll be looking to win back the trust of their fans.

During their inaugural festival, which took place in June 2018, four artists cancelled their performances during the same week as the event.

Migos, one of the headliners, had their set cancelled just 20 minutes before they were set to walk on stage, leaving fans outraged and demanding refunds.

This year’s festival will take place on Saturday, June 15 and Sunday, June 16 and is an all-ages event. Attractions include a VIP section, a food truck area, 19+ bars, and an alcohol-free zone.

According to organizers, festival tickets will also include access to Playland.
