Visitors flock to Napa Valley wine country from all over the world for unique experiences in wine tasting, dining, and luxury accommodations - not to mention the breathtaking vistas of, and from, the Mayacamas mountains, thesoothing panoramas of green, rolling vineyards, and the small, beautiful spaces to be found in wine cave alcoves, lavish architecture, world-class art collections, and shady, redwood groves.
But Napa Valley has even more to offer! Festivals and special events dot our region's social calendar not only for foodies and wine connoisseurs, but also for art-lovers, film-buffs, and of course, music fans.
BottleRock is Napa Valley's premiere music event for those whose tastes in rock and pop span genres. This year BottleRock has the most impressive line-up yet, complete with intimate after shows with some of music's biggest acts and brightest rising stars. The festival also brings the other bounties of Napa Valley-craft beer, fine wine, and outstanding cuisine. Since SENZA is the perfect home base for visitors who plan to attend the sold-out* event, we've detailed the festival's highlights for you below:
You can catch headliners on each of BottleRock's three dates, in addition to long, impressive lists of accomplished artists. On Friday, May 25, headliner (and reputed inspiration for the Twilight series) Muse leads the roster of opening acts, from the brass-studded tracks of Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue to the theatrical piano rock of Jukebox the Ghost.
Of course, even (and especially) in wine country, we love a good cocktail, and a number of fine producers will be on hand to offer their best concoctions. If you like the straight stuff, BottleRock also features a collection of classic bourbons for the whiskey connoisseur in your group!
At any good concert or festival, there's the main event - and then there's the aftershow. BottleRock offers a number of more intimate late-night performances that take place during BottleRock's official dates, and some just after the weekend's wrap-up. Like the Festival, some of these are sold out, but others still have tickets available. You can check out the full list here, which includes acts like MAGIC GIANT, Thievery Corporation, and more. (These take place in a variety of venues and locations, so you'll have to check per event to find out more.) But BottleRock also has a list of alternative shows featuring bands in this year's festival line-up before and after the festival itself, at locations around the Bay Area. For a complete list, check here, and don't miss the Sonoma Harvest Music Festival by BottleRock to run in September.
*Though the festival is technically sold-out, some tickets may be available on the ticket exchange.
