Descendents replace NOFX at Punk Rock Bowling 2021

The full lineup for the 2021 edition of the Punk Rock Bowling and Music Festival was announced last month. The gathering is set to go down from September 24-26 at the Downtown Vegas Events Center in Las Vegas, NV.

It has been revealed today that Friday headliners NOFX are no longer on the bill. Descendents have taken over their place.

PRB say:

We regret to announce that NOFX will no longer be able to perform at Punk Rock Bowling this year due to circumstances beyond our control, but the good news is we have confirmed the Descendents to headline Friday in their place! An email is currently being sent to everyone that bought a FRIDAY ONLY ticket to explain your options. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to still see you in Vegas this September.

NOFX’s mainman “Fat” Mike Burkett comments:

I’ve been playing and bowling at Punk Rock Bowling since the very first one when there were only 22 teams. PRB is my favorite time of the year. Like so many of you, I not only get to see my favorite bands, but I also get to see my punk friends from high school. This event is my reunion, it’s my convention, and it’s my church…. I was so f–king excited to play it this year….. but sadly we are not going to.

NOFX had a meeting this week and decided we shouldn’t play out of respect that wounds are still healing. There has been a lot of hate messages and threats because we are on the bill, It just feels wrong. We know we said shitty things that caused it, so we get it. Sorry to everyone that wanted to see us. It’ll have to be in a different city. Hopefully we can see you all in Vegas when the time’s right. But not Everything Sucks, I talked to Milo yesterday…. And he’s comin! Decendents are taking our spot! It’s pretty fucking cool that we are being replaced by a better band! I wish I could be there to see ’em.
