MAY 28-29 AT THE COMCAST THEATRE IN HARTFORD, CT
The festival marks the first time that The Comcast Theatre has hosted a non-profit event, and never one as unique as B.O.M.B. Fest. Organized by Frank Bombaci, Sr. and Frank Bombaci, Jr., B.O.M.B. Fest 2011 brings together some of the biggest names in hip-hop, alternative and indie rock, with all proceeds from the festival going to providing music scholarships, music enrichment and education programs, music and healing initiatives and community support and outreach. Last year’s festival raised money for The Hole in the Wall Gang Camps, Connecticut Children’s Hospital, YPI Camp, and The Lyman Allyn Museum.
In addition to national talent, festival guests will experience more than over 25 local acts across multiple stages, delicious food vendors, unique craft vendors and one-of a kind art installations, all complemented by Comcast Theatre’s professional amenities – clean bathrooms, spacious parking lots and state of the art sound systems.
Two-day passes are $99 and are currently available via the official festival website. Advance single-day tickets are also on sale now at $60 via www.bombfest.com. Stay tuned for new announcements about the festival, including the festival’s local line-up, as well as onsite details shortly.
