With 80 musical acts, artisan-quality wine, and tasty eats, what's not to love about Napa's music and food fest?
It seems that year after year, the headliners get better and the wine finer. The three-day music, wine, food, and craft brew fest, acquired by Live Nation last January, returns in its sixth year with a stellar headliner list that includes Bruno Mars, The Killers, and Muse. Other notable names amongst the 80 acts include Incubus, Snoop Dogg, Chainsmokers, Halsey, The Head and the Heart, Earth, Wind & Fire, and Billy Idol.
"We are thrilled about this year's lineup featuring world-renowned artists who combined have won 39 Grammy, Billboard Music and American Music Awards and received 150 nominations," said Dave Graham, CEO of BottleRock Napa Valley and BottleRock Presents. "In addition to the incredible music, we aim to make the guest experience the best in the business, giving all of our attendees access to the extraordinary food, wine, craft brew, spirits and hospitality they have come to expect from BottleRock Napa Valley.
Undoubtedly a festival for gourmands as much as music aficionados, the best in NorCal cuisine and vino will also be in attendance including the Williams-Sonoma Culinary Stage, who will showcase star chefs with musical performers for live cooking demonstrations.
