NOFX Drop Off 2021 Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival, Descendents Added

NOFX have officially dropped off the 2021 Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival in Las Vegas, NV. Descendents will now be taking their place.

NOFX’s decision to pull out of the event was related to backlash they received for a joke they made about the October 2017 Las Vegas, NV shooting during their set at the 2018 Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival. The group previously apologized for the incident, but it appears some people are still not too happy with them. Fat Mike issued the following statement:

“I’ve been playing and bowling at ‘Punk Rock Bowling‘ since the very first one when there were only 22 teams. PRB is my favorite time of the year. Like so many of you, I not only get to see my favorite bands, but I also get to see my punk friends from high school. This event is my reunion, it’s my convention, and it’s my church…. I was so fucking excited to play it this year….. but sadly we are not going to.

NOFX had a meeting this week and decided we shouldn’t play out of respect that wounds are still healing. There has been a lot of hate messages and threats because we are on the bill, It just feels wrong. We know we said shitty things that caused it, so we get it. Sorry to everyone that wanted to see us. It’ll have to be in a different city.

Hopefully we can see you all in Vegas when the time’s right. But not Everything Sucks, I talked to Milo yesterday…. And he’s comin! Decendents are taking our spot! It’s pretty fucking cool that we are being replaced by a better band! I wish I could be there to see ’em.

Actually very sincere,
Fat Mike and NOFX“

2020 Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival Postponed

The 2020 Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The event was originally scheduled to take place on May 21-25 in Downtown Las Vegas.

Organizers issued the following statement:

“We started out optimistic, but it is with great sadness that due to the recommendations by the CDC, WHO, and local, county, and state authorities regarding the coronavirus pandemic, and with an abundance of caution for the health and welfare of everyone attending Punk Rock Bowling, we regretfully report that we are postponing the event effective immediately.

We know this comes as a disappointment, and we share that frustration with you. However, this virus loves a crowd, and we cannot put our community at risk, we must look out for each other now more than ever.

Punk Rock Bowling and Music Festival 2020 is rescheduled for this Fall (dates TBA), and we are anticipating that most of the bands currently set to play will be there.

All Festival tickets and bowling teams will be honored for the new dates in the Fall. PURCHASERS WILL BE NOTIFIED by Friday, March 27 on how to obtain a full refund if they are unable to attend.

All hotel rooms purchased through PRB and club shows purchased through SeeTickets will be refunded back to the credit card used to make the purchase. Due to the mass cancellations happening across the globe right now, these refunds will take around 30 days to process.

We will continue to post updates and more information as things progress via PRB Social Media and our website.

Hang tough and #staythefhome so we can all get through this! We can’t wait to see all of you in Vegas this fall.

🖤~The PRB Crew~🖤”
