Let the countdown begin! Finally a festival right in the heart of the beautiful, picturesque, romantic setting of Napa Valley! Bottle Rock is a festival that encompasses all aspects of entertainment: live music, food, wine, comedy, and much more.
Situated on four stages spread over 26 acres on the grounds at the Napa Valley Expo in the City of Napa, more than three dozen chefs and restaurateurs will join more than 50 wineries and artisan brewers during the inaugural Bottle Rock Napa Valley May 9 – 12.
With over 600 wineries in Napa Valley, Bottle Rock Festival deemed its name in order to pay homage to the ‘Bottle Shock’ phenomenon. This is the first year that Bottle Rock has come into existence, and has already garnered some major credibility and press. The perfect distinction between Bottle Rock and other festivals, is Bottle Rock is considered a ‘premium festival’ due to its depth, proximity, and not to mention killer lineup.
“We wanted to make Bottle Rock a big audacious event, and really establish ourselves, said Gabe from Will Power Events- a promoting company in Napa Valley, think of Bottle Rock as a killer concert series for music connoisseurs!” Bottle Rock is only able to hot 35,000 people per day which is far smaller than its ‘competitors’ such as: Coachella, Bonnaroo, and Lollapalooza which can hold nearly 100,000. Limited availability makes for a comfortable experience because everything is easily accessible and it is within the same price point as all the others.
When you buy your pass to Bottle Rock Napa, you are doing more than just attending an incredible, new, unique music festival with over 60 bands on 3 stages, top wineries, the best of Napa food, microbrews, and top comics - You're having the time of your life for 4 amazing days in Napa, AND to top it off you are doing it all for a good cause - many good causes in fact.
