There may not be another New York festival like All Points West, there are others options in the tri-state area such as B.O.M.B. Fest. It’s a festival that takes place at Comcast Theatre in Hartford, Connecticut. It’s a festival that mixes large acts with smaller acts, along with local bands from Connecticut. The best part is, the festival is a charity. It’s a non-profit organization where all money raised goes towards funding music & arts programs in schools and arts scholarships.
The festival features the likes of Weezer, Snoop Dogg, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, The New Pornographers, Against Me!, Best Coast, Titus Andronicus, The Cool Kids, Wavves, Man Man, Dum Dum Girls, Freelance Whales, Holy Fuck, Free Energy, Woods, Real Estate plus many more. It’s got quite a diverse selection of artists. There’s sure to something for everyone.
The two day festival takes place on May 28th & May 29th. For more info head to their site. I know a lot of you are looking for a festival, but don’t want to venture out to Coachella, Bonnaroo, or Lollapolooza. So if your in the tri-state area, this may work better for you.
