WHEN AND WHERE WILL THE POOL PARTIES BE?

We will be hosting our infamous pool parties at The Downtown Grand, Fri-Sun. Bands TBA Summer 2021. Check out the Pool Parties page for updates!
The pool parties are FREE to everyone, HOWEVER the pool area has a limited capacity which will be controlled by hotel staff. 
If you book a room at the Downtown Grand through the PRB website, you will receive TWO wristbands at check in. A wristband gives you early priority entrance to the pool parties, but they do not guarantee entrance. 
There are no extra wristbands available for anyone and they are not for sale.
If you book a DTG room through the hotel or any other service besides directly with PRB, please to talk to the hotel about if they will provide wristbands.

**Your wristband does not get you in to the After Parties that take place at the Downtown Grand, you must purchase a ticket for those shows.

HOW DO I GET MY BAND ON ONE OF YOUR AWESOME LINEUPS?

You are welcome to fill out this BAND SUBMISSION FORM with your information (please do not hit us up on social media) and we’ll add you to the list of bands to check out. IF we have a spot for your band, we’ll email you. We get loads of band submissions and it is impossible for us to email everyone a response, just know that we give every band that submits to play a listen. The band list ongoing and we refer to it every year for the festival, after parties and pool parties, so you only need to apply ONCE. Follow up emails by bands will definitely NOT help your chances, so please DON’T bother!
