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 3 day festival in downtown Las Vegas that brings out fans and bands alike from all over the world.
3 days of outdoor festivals, 4 Nights of Club Shows, a 2 day bowling tournament, Hotel Pool Parties, A Punk Rock Poker tournament and Comedy shows to boot, all wrapped up into one amazing weekend in the City never sleeps.
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 ROCK 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. This is a 3 day outdoor festival starting in the afternoon and features 9 great bands each day on Saturday, Sunday and Monday celebrated with 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 5 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 90 bands will perform throughout the weekend.
