Punk Rock Bowling 2023 Has Announced Its Lineup

Since Punk Rock Bowling will be back in Las Vegas in May 2023, the line-up was announced a few days ago. I have attended the festival a few times and it is a lot of fun; in particular, it’s always surprising and amusing to see punk rockers invade sin city. However, I would say that the 2023 lineup looks a bit same old same old: Rancid, Bad Religion, Dropkick Murphys, the Interrupters, Suicidal tendencies, the Damned, and L7 are headlining the 3 days of PRB, and if these bands are all solid punk rockers, we have already seen them play at this exact same place. That’s also the case for Me First and the Gimme Gimmes or GHB who are also part of the fest. As for Fishbone and T.S.O.L., even though they are great live acts, they are not a good enough reason to drive to Vegas when they regularly play around LA… even for free!

Next year’s Punk Rock Bowling lineup is classic old punk but misses any of previous years’ surprises. Didn’t they have Iggy Pop in 2017? Refused in 2019? Madness was supposed to play in 2020, but, of course, we all know what happened that year. The 2023 lineup will certainly please the regular attendees but it is lacking some je-ne-sais-quoi, some band to spice up this expected series of punk veterans. Sure, if you scroll down a bit, you will find young bands like Surfbort, Suzi Moon, and even the mighty trio Speed of Light! I am completely spoiled because I have seen them quite a few times in Los Angeles.

These three/four days of loud music in Las Vegas will happen on May 26, 27, 28, and 29 2023 (Memorial Day weekend), and every year, it becomes a charming gathering of diverse punk tribes with an authentic punk-rock vibe. The main festival is located in Downtown Las Vegas, but the fun continues at many club locations along Fremont street and its vicinity. The 3-day general admission pass is $190 plus fees, but you can read about all the details as well as the full lineup on the Punk Rock Bowling website.
