BottleRock Line Up and Tickets Announced

BottleRock 2018
By Chris Murphy

The annual music festival in Napa is shaping up to be one of the best festival show in the nation. Every year, the JAM Cellars BottleRock taps into the brightest and best and up and comers and this 3-day festival returns May 25-27This year’s line up is amazing featuring ModestoView faves Muse, Billy Idol, Theivery Corporation, the Killers, Oh Wonder, the legendary Earth Wind and Fire, Dhani Harrison, Lukas Nelson, Phantogram and so many more. Wow. Also exciting is the premier position for The Head and the Heart, a band we have been following since they emerged from the streets in Seattle. This line up is great and tix are increasingly difficult to get, VIP 3 –day selling out within minutes of the on-sale. The GA soon after.

Why? This festival has it figured out. Nice compact formula, great layout, mellow scene, back to back stages with ample VIP seating and convenience areas and a short cut between stages and loads of food and drink booths. Other festivals can learn from this. Reg GA tix, also excellent as there are great viewing spots, lots of small stages, the culinary stage has become a place to see great musicians team up with celebrity chefs and so much more.

And wine, lots of it. Premium wine everywhere, specialty cocktails, great tastes from local classic eateries.
Don’t miss out. Tix go on sale Tuesday, Jan 9 at 10 am PST.

See you in Napa
