Punk Rock Bowling Music Festival has announced their 2015 lineup, which includes Dropkick Murphys, Refused, and Rancid. The festival will take place in downtown Los Vegas on May 23rd, 24th, and 25th of next year.
The festival will feature three days of outdoor festival, four nights of club shows, a two-day pool tournament, hotel pool parties, a poker tournament, and comedy shows. There will be a total of ninety bands performing throughout the weekend.
The festival began in 1999 as a way to bring together members of the indie punk music scene by having a huge Las Vegas party. Two hundred and fifty bowling teams will be competing over the course of the festival, with the games spanning four different bowling venues.
All ages are welcome to the event, but under 18 requires an adult companion, and only 21 and over can get into the night club events.

The festival also sells single day tickets and tickets to the night club shows.
