VENUE

WELCOME TO MAPFRE STADIUM IN COLUMBUS, OHIO

MAPFRE Stadium (pronounced “mah-frey”) is located within walking distance of Ohio State University and 10 minutes/5 miles north of downtown Columbus. Conveniently located right next to I-71, we can’t be happier to be back at the site where the first-ever Breakaway Music Festival was held back in 2013.

ADDRESS: One Black And Gold Blvd, Columbus, OH 43211


PARKING

MAPFRE Stadium features plenty of paid parking in the areas immediately next to the Stadium. You can also get dropped off at the venue, and ridesharing apps like Uber and Lyft are allowed to make drop-offs as well. Also, we offer shuttle with direct routes to the festival from surrounding cities -- click ``Shuttles`` on the menu to book your shuttle.

BUILT-IN INFRASTRUCTURE

MAPFRE Stadium is a self-sufficient event venue, meaning temporary items like Port-A-Potties aren't completely necessary. You'll be able to enjoy plenty of built-in sanitary restrooms, water fountains, and shade and cover throughout the venue! Breakaway will be using the Parking Lots and Plaza configuration of the stadium.

UNIQUE FOOTPRINT

Using the outside corridor within the venue grounds, MAPFRE Stadium really boasts a great footprint that allows for the Main Stage and Prime Stage to not interfere with each other, for restrooms and food to be easily accessible, and to still provide plenty of space to unwind if needed.
