Punk Rock Bowling was started back in 1999 as a way to bring the independent music community together for an annual party. It has since grown into a 4 day festival in downtown Las Vegas and a 3 day festival in Asbury Park, NJ, that brings out fans and bands alike from all over the world.
Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival, now in it’s 19th year, has been one of the longest standing Punk Festivals in the country. Taking over downtown Las Vegas for 4 days, PRB is a whirlwind of a weekend unlike any other music festival. Make no mistake, this is a Punk Rock Festival and we feature some of the best bands over the past 35+ years, from the old school pioneers and classics to mainstays and up and comers. The brothers Stern have been heavily involved in the Punk community since the late ’70′s and spend countless hours scouring their record collections, memories and abilities to reach out to old friends and new to put together an amazing line-up every year.
Once you arrive downtown you don’t ever need to leave, everything is within a 5 block radius of the hotel. 3 days of outdoor festival lineups start in the afternoon and features 9 great bands each day on Saturday, Sunday and Monday celebrated with over 7,000 of your close personal punk rock friends and many new lifelong friends to be made. And if that’s not enough, their will be 4 late night club shows each night in smaller more intimate surroundings featuring more great bands as well as some special surprises. All in all, over 100 bands will perform throughout the weekend. Throw in 1,000 bowlers at 3 separate bowling centers, a poker tournament, comedy, movie screenings, art exhibits, lounge shows and of course gambling and booze, and you got yourself what we call a punk rock bowling weekend!
Asbury Park- PRB will not be returning to the East Coast in 2018
