This ain’t your parents’ Dallas. It’s hard to worry about who shot J.R. (look it up if you’re under 40) and who has the coolest Stetson when you’re too busy rocking out to the best music around. The Bomb Factory is a state-of-the-art, 50,000 square foot venue located in the heart of Dallas’s historic Deep Ellum neighborhood, known for its rich music-centric culture.
With its recently completed multimillion-dollar renovation, the new and improved Bomb Factory can accommodate up to 4,300 fans, with a general admission mezzanine, VIP suites, and premium reserved seating options. D Magazine says that The Bomb Factory could be the “most important music venue in Dallas,” since it offers the chance to actually see iconic artists in an intimate setting, instead of just hearing them from far away in a faceless arena.
“Scanning 4000 people in at a show requires a solid platform. Ticketfly’s rapid growth around the nation, cutting edge technology, and superior client support team made this decision easy.”

The building has a rich history, too; it formerly housed a Ford factory, followed by an actual ammunition plant in World War II (explaining the name). During its first heyday as a music venue in the 1990s, The Bomb Factory hosted everyone from Phish to Fugazi to Nine Inch Nails. The renovated venue started with a blast, with a sold-out Erykah Badu show (check out the rave coverage from the Dallas Morning News and the Dallas Observer), over two decades after she came through the same room as the opening act for A Tribe Called Quest.
Check out some of the great shows coming up at The Bomb Factory soon, including Ministry on May 3, The Jesus and Mary Chain on May 7, Purity Ring on May 22, and Tyler the Creator on June 5.
