Punk Rock Bowling is Coming Back for 2023!

It’s that time of year again in Vegas, where Memorial Day weekend isn’t just for those celebrating the day, but the punks descend on the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center grounds.

We’ve had the pleasure of being in that crowd since 2015 in some capacity; whether it was at one of the many club shows or a kick-off like when we caught Anti-Flag for an acoustic set and conversation at 11th Street Records, or being in the pit and screaming our hearts out to Refused and Descendents like we did in 2019.

This year’s Punk Rock Bowling (#23!) is sure to be yet another incredible weekend, and we are stoked to spend it with bands that we love to see, like Bad Religion, FEAR, and L7 (just to name a few)!

Each year, Punk Rock Bowling gets better and better, and this year is no exception. Not only do we have an incredible festival lineup, but the club shows are so good that the majority of them are already sold out! Pool shows are starting to be announced as well, so if you don’t want to wait until the afternoon to grab your favorite beer and sing along, you can get your day started early.

3 day general admission and VIP are already sold out, as are single days for Saturday and Sunday, but you can still get Monday tickets and catch Dropkick Murphys, Suicidal Tendencies, L7 and MORE! There are also very few club show tickets still available, and trust us- they’re bands you do not want to miss!

You can find the festival lineup, events, and ticket availability (as well as shop for merch and plan out your food for the weekend) on Punk Rock Bowling’s official website.

Stephanie " Stephy " Muzio (formerly Hayward) - Public Relations / Writer/ Photographer and Co-Founder of ZRockR Magazine Co-host of ZRockR Magazine LIVE! Stephy was raised on rock and roll. Originally from Illinois, Stephy is the daughter of an aspiring metal guitarist and a former rock n roll radio dj. Stephy’s first concert at the tender age of 8 was Rob Zombie at the original Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas, where she happily threw horns up and sang along to "Dragula" with the best of them ( she incidentally loves horror films too!) . She performed with the VGA choir at the 2007 Video Game Awards show at Mandalay Bay when it was hosted by Samuel L Jackson, sharing the stage with the likes of Foo Fighters as well as Kid Rock. An LVA alum, when she isn’t singing or playing herself (she plays a few different instruments), she is out in support of the local scene and at her friends gigs around the southwest and even when she is back home in Illinois! She has written as well as done some photography previously for a couple of smaller zines including Vegas SoundZ when it was in print. Stephy takes the adage of ” If it’s too loud that is just too damn bad! ” to heart- after all- she was raised around screaming guitars, thunderous drums, production studios and only Led Zeppelin and Nirvana played extremely loud would put her to sleep as a kid! Stephy is a large part of the backbone of ZRockR.
