WHAT IS THIS THING CALLED PUNK ROCK BOWLING??
Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival was started back in 1999 by brothers Shawn and Mark Stern, owners of the long standing independent record label BYO Records, 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 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, movie screenings and comedy shows to boot, all wrapped up into one amazing weekend in the city that never sleeps. And now, we welcome our fans, friends and family to our first trip east, to Asbury Park as well, in 2016.
Everyone is welcome to attend Punk Rock Bowling and even if you do not bowl, there are a lot of other things going on all weekend long. All ages are welcome to the festival shows each day, but if you are under 18, you must be accompanied by an adult. All Club Shows are 21 and over.
PRB Hotel deals are offered at a discounted rate but are only sold as either 3 or 4 day weekend blocks. (Fri. – Sun. or Fri. – Mon.) This rate is for Las Vegas ONLY and available only when booking through the PRB website.
Tickets can only be purchased in advance from the PRB website. When purchasing tickets, you will receive a confirmation email with the tickets in a PDF Attachment. You can print out the tickets and present them or you can show the ticket from your mobile device to be scanned for entry at the show. If any show is not sold out in advance, tickets will be available day of show at the festival box office by the entrance. We do not recommend purchasing tickets from outside sources as they could easily be invalid.
Currently for Las Vegas (Asbury Park bowling details coming soon), 190 bowling teams will be competing throughout the weekend. 3 squads on Day One will be bowling in 3 different bowling alleys, our old faithful, Sam’s Town Bowling Center, Suncoast, and our original home where PRB started, The Gold Coast Casino. Playoffs will take place at Sams Town on Sunday. There will be buses available for all bowlers which will take you round trip from Downtown to your assigned bowling alley.
