This year’s musical performers are an impressive lineup of superstars across six music stages. CELEB took a look back in January when the lineup was announced:
“Jokingly called ‘the connoisseur’s rock festival,’ BottleRock combines fine wining and superior dining with music. And this year’s music lineup is one that is tempting to everyone, whether it’s caviar and croquettes you love or cronuts and burgers – everyone can agree that certain acts are not to be missed.
Here are this year’s BottleRock headliners:
- Twenty One Pilots
- Luke Combs
And the event boasts over 75 acts, including:
- The Black Crowes
- Mount Westmore (featuring Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, E-40 and Too $hort)
- Alessia Cara
- Greta Van Fleet
- Michael Franti & Spearhead
- Grandmaster Flash
- The Napa Valley Youth Symphony
- and many more.
It’s a vibrant and eclectic lineup sure to have attendees tapping their toes and singing along.”
And now that we know the dining and drinking options that go along with it, it’s clear that BottleRock is back and better than ever. This year’s festival runs May 27-29 and if you’re interested in attending, visit the website for tickets and more information.
One of BottleRock’s most exciting sponsors, JaM Cellars, is back this year and feeling good about the direction the festival is heading in. Founder and CEO of JaM Cellars John Anthony Truchard, had this to say about this year’s lineup in a statement, “Over the last 6 years as Presenting Sponsor of BottleRock Napa Valley, JaM Cellars has witnessed the festival experience get better and better—especially the wine and food offerings. Wineries and restaurateurs really strive to bring something unique to the festival every year. It’s why we host the ‘JaMPad,’ as a place to get closer to the music with delicious wines, and this year’s new ‘Butter Cab-ana,’ where we’ll debut new Butter releases at the festival. Metallica, P!nk, and Twenty One Pilots on the JaM Cellars stage, great wines, and gourmet food—it doesn’t get much better.” We agree and if you want to see what all the hype is about, act fast. Sunday, 3-Day and VIP tickets are sold out, so don’t delay in making your plans.
The festival includes a silent disco, spa, impressive array of art installations and events and so much more – if you only attend one festival this year, this should probably be it. Once upon a time it was seen as an out-of-place event in the heart of an otherwise stately and quiet Valley region – but now, it’s hard to imagine Napa Valley without BottleRock.
