B.O.M.B. Fest Moved To Larger Venue

Citing strong early ticket sales, the 3rd annual B.O.M.B. (Bring Our Music Back) Festival has been moved to the Comcast Theatre In Hartford,CT. B.O.M.B. Fest marks the first time The Comcast Theatre has hosted a non-profit, albeit one featuring rap stars like Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa, veteran rockers like Weezer and indie acts like The New Pornographers and The Cool Kids. The festival will also feature 25 local acts on multiple stages.

Live Nation Conneticut-Upstate New York President  Jim Koplick was pleased about the festival move to a larger space."I have watch BOMB fest grow from its days at the Durhma Fair and am honored they have chosen the Comcast Theatre to host the 2011 BOMB fest," said Koplick. "It is the number one homegrown festival in Connecticut and now it will be held in the premiere outdoor concert venue in Connecticut."

Proceeds from the festival will go towards providing music scholarships, music enrichment and education programs. Last year's festival raised funds for The Hole In The Wall Gang Camps, Connecticut Children's Hospital YPI Camp and The Lyman Allyn Museum.
