Due to overwhelming demand from our East Coast brethren that just can’t make the cross country trek to the City of Sin, we will celebrate our 18th Birthday on both coasts for 2016. And to take part in the celebration, Punk Rock Bowling is proud to announce a sneak peak of the lineup so far. . .
Flogging Molly, Descendents, Cock Sparrer, Flag, Exploited, Dagnasty, Subhumans, Dillinger Four, Anti-Nowhere League, Youth Brigade and The Dwarves have all signed on to play so far.This is just the beginning for the 18th Annual Punk Rock Bowling Tournament and Music Festival.
“Not only are we are excited to bring Punk Rock Bowling back to downtown Las Vegas, but to finally bring our festival to Asbury Park, is a dream we’ve been talking about for years”, says co-founder Mark Stern. “What better place on the east coast is there for our fans who have wanted to experience our world of bowling, punk rock, and a gathering of our closest friends. Throw in an ocean view and the infamous Asbury Park Boardwalk and I think you’ve got yourself a great weekend.”
“And for those of you who will be coming to Las Vegas, we cannot wait to see you for a weekend of mayhem, bowling, poker, pool parties, late night club shows and of course the best punk rock festival in North America. Punk Rock music is a way of life, it’s the unwanted step child, it’s a community unlike any other and this event is a celebration of its existence as one of the most influential forms of music in the past 40 years.”
The outdoor music festival, which will take place at 7th Street and Stewart Ave. in Downtown Las Vegas and now also at The Stone Pony Summer Stage in Asbury Park, NJ is an all-ages event that features some of the best punk, ska, and hardcore bands from all over the world. Cheap drinks, a wide variety of innovative food options, as well as clothing and music vendors are welcome distractions throughout the day.
