ORIGINAL STORY: 10:30 p.m. Sunday, May 12, 2013.

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.

wiseone states: "And many of you suggest that we move? Uh, no. I live here. I'm not moving." HOORAY! Then stop complaining. The majority will rule (one hopes) and we'll see show next year, scaled down but louder than you'll find acceptable. Rent your house, take a mini-vacation, do something if you're going to stay. You've run out of plausible reasons why it shouldn't be at Expo next year.

This is obviously a first-hand report and not just your biased opinion, right ?

For an inaugural run of a festival like this, I feel like they did a nice job getting some pretty solid talent to commit. Success breeds success so if the festival continues to do well in future years, you'd probably expect the talent level to continue getting better as well.

Maybe somebody could actually source the data for how much money the average Napan is supposed to make, or how much the city, and state for that matter, paid to hold it. I made the best of it here on Juarez and for the most part enjoyed. However that does not give me the right to sit in judgement of my neighbors who had every right to be bothered. The argument that people knew what they were getting into is about the stupidest I can imagine. It takes all responsibility of the organizers and city since they can know claim Oxbow and Alta residents knew that we can do anything to them in terms of noise and crowds because they signed up for whatever we throw in their faces. What is even more amazing is that those who don't want government interfering with their private property are on the governments side on this
