The BottleRock Napa Festival Schedule, Giveaway

Updated May 9: The BottleRock festival is well into its second day, but there’s lots more to come over the next three days. We’re giving away a three-day pass for the festival in Napa, good Friday through Sunday. Enter here.

Update May 8: After a recent health scare by Grateful Dead Co-Founder Bob Weir, Further won’t make an appearance at BottleRock Napa Valley Music Festival, but there’s still plenty to see when the full festival lineup gets underway May 9 and continues through May 12.


The first-year event begins this week and there are hot rumors that festival organizers have reached out to Pearl Jam, The Rolling Stones and Prince in search of a lineup replacement.

Held at the Napa Valley Expo in downtown Napa, in addition to bands BottleRock Napa Valley hosts comedy and several local eateries and wineries.

Compared to other music festivals, the general demographic for BottleRock attendees skews a little older with no gambles on younger buzz bands, but headliners include some of the stop touring acts out now.
