About PRB

The Punk Rock Bowling and Music Festival is more than just a music festival – it’s a punk rock family reunion unlike any other. Founded in 1999, it has grown from a casual bowling tournament with one band to a four-day extravaganza featuring over 100 bands across a two-stage outdoor festival along with late-night club shows stages, pool parties, art exhibitions, book signings, lounge performances, gambling and much, much more!

We’re dedicated to showcasing the best of punk rock, both established and up-and-coming. Every year, we curate a lineup that celebrates the music and ideas that have shaped our community, featuring bands that so many of us grew up with and introducing you to the exciting new wave of punk exploding worldwide. PRB has featured such stalwarts as Iggy PopDEVO, The SpecialsThe DamnedMadnessRancidNOFXThe BuzzcocksCock SparrerCircle JerksThe DescendentsFlagSuicidal TendenciesRefusedThe HivesL7The StranglersBilly BraggThe InterruptersAgainst Me! and Hepcat just to name a few, along with up and comers The ChatsFidlarScowlSurfbortDestroy BoysThe ChiselEnd It, Snõõper, and so many more. 

We’re thrilled to welcome back Mark Stern as festival booker just in time for our 25th anniversary in 2025! Mark, along with his brother Shawn, envisioned this punk rock party back in 1999. What started as a small gathering of friends has become a punk rock pilgrimage, and the brother’s expertise guiding this festival over two and half decades will be instrumental in crafting an unforgettable lineup for this momentous occasion.

Join Us in 2025! Mark your calendars for Memorial Day Weekend, May 23rd to 26th, 2025, and get ready to experience the best party on Earth! The spirit of DIY is at the heart of everything we do. 


See you in the pit!
