LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Now in its 22nd year, the Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival has announced the band lineup for the 2023 shows. It will be held on May 26 – 29, 2023 mainly at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center.

Topping the lineup are three well-known bands: Rancid, Bad Religion, and Dropkick Murphys.


The first band to perform during the first festival back in 1999 was Me First and the Gimme Gimmes at the Double Down Saloon, according to the festival’s website.
