This year’s Bring Our Music Back Festival (B.O.M.B.) has been moved to a bigger venue following strong early ticket sales. The benefit festival, featuring Weezer andSnoop Dogg as headliners, will now be held at The Comcast Theatre in Hartford, CT, according to a press release.

The dates of the B.O.M.B. Festival remain the same. Saturday, May 28, Weezer will be supported by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and George Clinton and Parliament/Funkadelic among others. Sunday’s show (5/29) includes performances by Snoop, Wiz Khalifa, Coheed and Cambria, Against Me! and others.

In addition to national acts, the festival will feature more than 25 local acts across its multiple stages.

The event was originally scheduled to take place at Western Connecticut State University in Danbury, CT.

All proceeds from the festival will go to providing music scholarships, music enrichment and education programs, music and healing initiatives and community support and outreach.

Full line-up and ticket information is available at the B.O.M.B. website.
