NAPA, CALIF. (CelebrityAccess) The BottleRock Napa Valley has announced its 2018 lineup, with headliners Bruno Mars, The Killers and Muse.
The Napa, Calif., festival, to be held May 25-27, is known for its extensive VIP offerings (special cabanas, intimate shows by mainstage performers, special VIP viewing areas and food courts, etc.), plus the Williams-Sonoma Culinary Stage where performers cook cuisine alongside famous chefs.
This year’s performance will include more than 80 acts, featuring The Chainsmokers, Halsey, Snoop Dogg, Head & The Heart, Billy Idol, and Thievery Corporation. Other acts include St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Michael Franti & Spearhead, E-40, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Magic Giant, Bleachers, and Oh Wonder.
“We are thrilled about this year’s lineup featuring world-renowned artists who combined have won 45 Grammys, Billboard Music and American Music Awards and received more than 145 nominations,” said David Graham, CEO of BottleRock Napa Valley and BottleRock Presents. “In addition to the incredible music, we aim to make the guest experience the best in the business, giving all of our attendees access to the extraordinary food, wine, craft brew, spirits and hospitality they have come to expect from BottleRock Napa Valley.”
Last year’s event included he3adliners Foo Fighters, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, and Maroon 5.
BottleRock has been developed by a trio of promoters at the company Latitude 380, none of whom had a background in festival promotion when they came on board and who proudly proclaim their background is in food, wine and entertainment, and focused their expertise toward producing a live event using that background – including special tents normally seen at PGA events, cuisine and high-end bars.
The three-day general admission ticket is $349. Three-day VIP passes are $749, which includes access to the VIP Village with its premium bars, culinary offerings and VIP viewing deck, plus live acoustic performances at the VIP Acoustic Stage.
The $1,500 pass includes access to the Skydeck with its elevated side-stage viewing access.
