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~🖤”

NOFX Receive Backlash After Joking About Las Vegas Concert Shooting During The Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival

NOFX are receiving backlash after making a joke about the October 2017 Las Vegas, NV shooting during their set at the Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival. After finishing a song, frontman Fat Mike said “We played a song about Muslims and we didn’t get shot. Hooray.” Guitarist Eric Melvin continued: “I guess you only get shot in Vegas if you’re in a country band.” Fat Mike then responded: “You know that sucked but at least they were country fans and not punk rock fans.” The band then told the offended crowd the following: “You were all thinking it.” “But he said it.” “Did I offend somebody? I can’t fucking believe it.”

The founders of the festival have since issued the following statement:

“In light of NOFX’s comments during their performance at Punk Rock Bowling and Music Festival, we would like to offer a formal apology to those in attendance, the City of Las Vegas, the victims, and the families of 10/1.

Las Vegas is home to the Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival, and we do not condone the statements made from our stage on Sunday night. We take the safety of our festival goers seriously and want to relay that, there is nothing funny about people being shot and murdered, ever.

Mark Stern and Shawn Stern
Founders of Punk Rock Bowling”
