About Us

WHAT IS THIS THING CALLED PUNK ROCK BOWLING??


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 8,000 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 800 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!

Tickets for PRB

We recommend the 3 day Festival pass which gets you into all 3 days of the festival and an Exclusive Pre-Sale Access Code to purchase club show tickets. Each 3 Day Pass or VIP Pass Purchase will include one access code for an Exclusive Club Show Pre-Sale. The barcode number on each 3 day pass is your code which will allow you pre-sale access in March when our club shows go on sale. There will be a purchase limit of 1 club show ticket per day (up to 3 club show tickets total) Club show tickets almost always sell out in minutes, so this gives you the opportunity to beat the mad rush.

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. Club show won't be announced until March and tickets typically go on sale shortly after the announcements. Please check the festival section of the website for details.

Bowling

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.
