“The genesis of BottleRock springs from the great live entertainment gift that is the Uptown Theatre," said BottleRock Co-Founder Gabriel Meyers.
"The long awaited downtown Napa renaissance has inspired us to bring an eclectic and broad group of world class music and performers to our home town,” he said.
“The Napa Valley has set such a high standard for wine, food and hospitality that we feel that the time is right to add an amazing music festival to the mix," Meyers added. "It will be great to see foodies, wine lovers and BottleRockers exploring the Valley by day and then coming together in downtown Napa for an evening of after parties."

Situated on three stages spread over 26 acres on the grounds at the Napa Valley Expo in the City of Napa, BottleRock Napa Valley attendees will enjoy the best in wine and food from many of the finest vintner and culinary talents of the legendary Napa Valley.
Approximately 60 vintner partners, along with artisanal micro-brewers, will be paired with dozens of Napa Valley restaurateurs and chefs, ensuring that BottleRock Napa Valley will provide a complementary culinary festival experience second to none.
In contrast to other festivals where tens of thousands are packed into a dusty, crowded field, BottleRock Napa Valley will offer incredible venue sight lines, unsurpassed civility, unparalleled artist access and intimacy, and creature comforts that reflect the hospitable spirit of the Napa Valley.
Doors to the Expo will open at noon, and performances will begin around 12:30pm each day, so attendees can enjoy the beautiful Napa Valley during festival mornings.
After the final encore each evening, the City of Napa will come alive with dozens of VIP after parties at restaurants, art galleries and wine tasting rooms, all along the City of Napa’s Oxbow District, Restaurant Row and West End, and all within an easy four block walking distance from the Napa Valley Expo, the Uptown Theatre, and the many downtown Napa Hotels.
