BottleRock organizers ended five days of great tunes, perfect weather, food, beer and community with an announcement that the festival would return next May to Napa.
“We did the impossible in less than six months and the people responded,” said Festival co-founder Gabe Meyers.
“BottleRock Napa Valley was a dream my business partner Bob Vogt and I had. To sit here Mother’s Day weekend and celebrate the birth of a new northern California festival feels incredible. A big thank you goes out to all the artists, believers, fans and especially our crew that joined us for this first year event and made it a spectacular start.”
Next year’s festival will be held May 9-11, 2014, with three-day tickets already on sale. Everyone who purchased BottleRock tickets through the festival’s ticketing partner will be emailed a promotional code that can be applied to a three-day pass for next year’s event.
An estimated 35,000 people attended the inaugural BottleRock festival at the Napa Valley Expo to hear more than 80 artists over the course of five days.
