Napa Valley, California -- First launched in 2013 with an impressive lineup featuring The Black Keys, The Flaming Lips, and The Shins, Northern California's BottleRock will return for a sophomore year this coming May.

Recently acquired by Latitude 38 Entertainment (L38), the new group of organizers recently announced the three-day music and culinary festival will take place this summer from Friday, May 30 - Sunday, June 1.

The first BottleRock was applauded by critics and festivalgoers alike for its diverse lineup and unique food and wine experience. With a beautiful 260-acre location in the heart of Napa Valley known as the Napa Valley Expo, the festival featured multiple stages (set to accommodate the 40+ artist lineup), an extensive selection of world-class wines, and food from the state's most renowned chefs and restaurants.

However, while the festival was a musical success last year, organizers struggled with exorbitant costs. New management L38 has shortened the festival from 4.5 to 3 days, and is aiming to keep the very best aspects from last year's event while at the same time improving upon and learning from the 2013 production's short-comings. We're excited to see what they have in store.

Complete festival information, including the full lineup and artist information, will be announced in late February or early March. Platinum, VIP, 3-day, and single day tickets will be available at that time.
