Listen up punkers! Punk Rock Bowling is almost here. There will be a ton of great bands, lots of after concert entertainment. Hopefully you were lucky enough to pick up tickets. Some of the epic bands playing this year is unreal. I mean you can see bands like Descendents, DEVO, Circle Jerks, The Bronx, English Beat… the list goes on and on.
In today’s environment, with all great outings comes great responsibility. PRB’s COVID policy has been updated again and it’s super important. If you plan on attending, read the full info on their “COVID-19 INFO” page, but we will break it down a bit here for you too.
The site reads:
“PRB is continuing and committed to following the safest guidelines and procedures for the event as this pandemic’s status is still ever changing.”
“All attendees will be required to present PROOF OF COVID-19 VACCINATION and for fans who are not fully vaccinated, PROOF OF A NEGATIVE COVID-19 TEST RESULT must be obtained ON OR AFTER THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2021 to enter the festival or any PRB event.”
For California residents: If you are vaccinated, you will be required to show digital proof of vaccine via the “Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record” – a CA government run website. All that is required is your first and last name, birthdate and phone number. You will be prompted to enter a four-number password of your choice (think an ATM security code). You will then receive a link via text to retrieve your QR code (your digital vaccination proof) using said four-number password.
You can screenshot this or use your four-number password to retrieve your QR code again later. Your name, DOB, dose dates, and dose types will be listed with your QR code. We just did it and it’s a VERY easy process.
Other states have their own sites, so please see the Punk Rock Bowling link below to find your info.
If you are not vaccinated, you are required to show proof of negative COVID test taken no earlier than Thursday, September 23rd. You can get the test at the location of your choice or with the onsite professionals to get a rapid COVID test at The Downtown Grand in Las Vegas. This includes those under 12 that are not eligible for the vaccine.
Once you get all the COVID info worked out, you will need to go to one of two locations to get a wristband to show you are good to go the rest of the weekend. For digital vaccine card check only, you can go to The Hillcrest room located on the mezzanine floor of the Carson Tower at the Golden Nugget hotel.
For digital vaccine card check and COVID testing site, you can go to the Causeway parking lot located next to the Pawn shop at 317 N. 3rd St. across from the Downtown Grand Art Bar entrance.
Please remember to get your wristband as there will be no entrance to any PRB events without it, and this includes after-party shows.
If you are visiting from another country, please see the PBR site below for your options.
If you test positive on Thursday, September 23rd, you are not allowed admittance but you can send in your positive test results and get a full refund on your Punk Rock Bowling tickets within 14 days.
These are stressful times, friends. It’s important to remember these extreme circumstances are better than the event being completely canceled. We do this for the love of each other and music. This is temporary and together we can get through this!
