Set for May 25 – 28 in downtown Las Vegas, this year’s Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival features three days of action, four nights of club shows and two days of bowling. There’s also Texas Hold ’Em, pool parties and a little event festival organizers call the “biggest punk rock party of the year.”

With bowling scheduled for two establishments, the music game plan calls for eight bands each day Saturday through Sunday and four late-night intimate club shows. Expect more than 60 bands performing throughout the weekend.
