What is it?

A three-day music festival, augmented by three nights of club shows.


Downtown. The main fest is on 6th Street between Fremont and Carson; the club shows are at Beauty Bar, the Bunkhouse, LV Country Saloon and Azul Tequila.


May 28-30 for the outdoor fest, May 27-29 for the night shows.

Can I still get tickets?

For most of the club shows, yes. The main fest is sold out.

But it’s outside, so ...

Yeah, if you stand close enough, you’ll probably get to hear your favorite band for free. This is punk rock, right?

Can I bowl?

Not unless you registered months ago.

Can I watch Fat Mike bowl?

Sure. Bowling runs May 28 from 11 a.m.-7:30 p.m. and May 29 from 11:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Just don’t get between the man and his ball.

I have more questions!
