The Killers, Muse, Bruno Mars Top Napa’s BottleRock Fest 2018 Lineup

With 2018 officially in full swing, music festival lineup announcements are coming fast and furious. Organizers for the Napa BottleRock Festival revealed the complete lineup for the sixth annual three-day gathering, with pop star Bruno Mars along with alternative rockers The Killers and Muse at the top of the bill.

Other intriguing artists on the lineup include rapper Snoop Dogg, funk band Earth, Wind & Fire, classic rock legend Billy Idol, and a DJ set by the great Mike D of Beastie Boys lore. A few standout undercards are 7-piece New Orleans rock band The Revivalists, Alabama-based six-piece soul band St. Paul & the Broken Bones, multi-instrumentalist Shakey Graves, and soul group Lake Street Dive.

The festival, which takes place May 25-27 over Memorial Day weekend, offers even more beyond the music given its location in the heart of wine country. Numerous food, wine, and beer vendors will serve some of the best culinary and drinking options the Bay Area has to offer. Tickets went on sale on Tuesday, January 9 at 10am PST.

UPDATE: All festival passes are now SOLD OUT. However, single-day passes will be available and go on sale Wednesday, January 17 at

Last year’s BottleRock was headlined Foo Fighters, Tom Petty, Maroon 5, and featured a unique collabroation between E-30, Ayesha Curry, and Steph Curry. The celebrity guests for the culinary portion fo the lineup should be announced sometime in April. Among the highlights last year was Martha Stewart, Spanish-American chef José Andrés, and Masaharu Morimoto of Iron Chef fame.
