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. Look forward to seeing Boston's The Explosion in a rare reunion appearance, as well as Dillinger Four and Canadian upstarts PUP.
In addition to the main stage shows, there will be a slew of club performances on Friday, June 9 and Saturday, June 10. The Saturday club shows commence following the conclusion of that night’s lineup on the Stone Pony Summer Stage. Artists such as The Dwarves, Chuck Ragan, Conflict, Street Dogs, Giuda, Sick Of It All!, and more will make appearances. For more information on club shows, lineup, and tickets click here.
