Photos from last year:
BottleRock hit a snag following its inaugural 2013 launch, despite star-studded headliners The Black Keys and Kings of Leon. The original producers, BR Festivals, failed to pay more than $2.5 million to festival staff and ultimately filed for bankruptcy. As a result, local product Latitude 38 Entertainment took over ownership of the festival, scaled things down, and tightened the financial budget. The production company’s first run was a success last year, drawing approximately 80,000 over the course of the weekend.
