Punk Rock Bowling (PRB) has become one of the largest punk festivals in the world. Organisers Mark and Shawn Stern of Youth Brigade know their audience and always book a diverse range of punk acts. The main festival is held in Las Vegas, where it’s resided for the past 19 years while smaller festivals were also booked this year in Denver and Asbury Park. 2017 proved to be one of the best in the events history with Las Vegas headliners Iggy Pop, Bad Religion and Cock Sparrer. The club shows organised around the main festival are another draw card, these feature obscure bands that might not usually tour. I booked my flights shortly after the line-up announcement, making arrangements to attend the fest. I then waited patiently till the end of May when the Las Vegas PRB music festival officially commenced.
