Punk Rock Bowling Announces Asbury Park, New Jersey Lineup

February 15, 2017 • Music

One of the most home grown, legit music festivals — Punk Rock Bowling — is returning for the second year in a row to the world famous Stone Pony in Asbury Park, New Jersey. Headlining the two-day festival are The Specials and NOFX, who will be joined by the infamous pioneers of punk love songs, the Buzzcocks, and the smooth sounds of Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires. Don’t miss Boston’s The Explosion in a rare reunion appearance, as well as Dillinger Four and Canadian upstarts PUP, along with homegrown ’90s legends Lifetime. “Hell yeah, Asbury!” says longtime ESM Assignment Writer and hardcore lifer Jon Coen. “There are some really legendary bands playing Punk Rock Bowling Asbury Park this year. And Lifetime! It’s been a few years. People in New Jersey go ape for Lifetime. Good pull.” See the confirmed lineup below, with more bands to be announced soon.

Since its humble beginnings as a DIY bowling tournament in 1999, Punk Rock Bowling has prided itself on combining the perfect mixture of classic competition with an anti-authoritarian spirit, and the 2017 edition of PRB is sure to be the biggest and best yet. Punks from around the world will flock to Las Vegas (May 26-29) and Asbury Park, New Jersey (June 9-11) for a multi-day event. Punk Rock Bowling co-founder, Mark Stern, expounds “We want to bring the whole experience of what we’ve been doing in Las Vegas for the past 18 years to Asbury Park. Vegas is it’s own animal where the party goes all night,  Asbury has a distinct appeal with the ocean right across the street from the festival stage, there is a neighborhood type of vibe going on that gives the festival a truly unique setting.”
