BottleRock Festival Tickets: What You Need to Know

For music fans, the BottleRock Festival might be the best event that you don’t know about, especially if you’re also a wine lover. The festival has only been around since 2013, so it’s still relatively new. However, it’s created a serious following in Napa Valley and elsewhere in a short period of time, which isn’t surprising when you consider the amazing acts that have graced the stage. With the event growing every year, BottleRock Festival tickets give fans three days of diverse musical acts and amazing wine. If you’re interested in attending the BottleRock Festival in 2022, here is everything you need to know.

When and Where is the BottleRock Festival

The 2022 BottleRock Festival is scheduled to take place between Friday, May 27 and Sunday, May 29. As usual, the three-day festival is being hosted at the Napa Valley Expo in Napa, California. There will be three stages and roughly 60 performers over the course of those three days. Meanwhile, dozens of wineries from Napa Valley and other wine hotbeds will also be participating, allowing the BottleRock Festival to live up to its name for providing the perfect balance between music and wine.

Friday Lineup

Heavy metal legends Metallica and Norwegian DJ Kygo are the music headliners on Friday at the BottleRock Festival. Naturally, those aren’t the only acts taking on the stage to help jumpstart the festival. Spoon, Marcus King, Skip Marley, and others are also scheduled to perform on Friday.

Saturday Lineup

On Saturday night, the Black Crowes and Twenty One Pilots will close out the festivities as the headlining acts. Earlier in the day, Silversun Pickups, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, Grandmaster Flash, and the Napa Valley Youth Symphony are also set to perform. Lovers of hip-hop will also want to keep their eye on Mount Westmore, a group that features Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, and others.

Sunday Lineup

The BottleRock Festival comes to an end on Sunday, with Pink and Luke Combs taking the stage to end the weekend with a bank. However, Sunday afternoon will also feature some unmissable acts, including Pitbull, Alessia Cara, Bleachers, Fancy Joy, Aly & AJ, Amos Lee, and many others scheduled to perform.

Food and Drink

While music and wine are the highlights of the BottleRock Festival, don’t forget that there is great cuisine available as well. After all, the food in Napa Valley is sometimes just as good as the wine. Some of the best restaurants from the Napa area will be setting up shop at the Culinary Stage, sharing gourmet meals that are bound to be the perfect complement for the wines at the festival.

Staying Relaxed

Most music festivals can be fun but equally exhausting for visitors. But the BottleRock isn’t going to let that happen, which is why it has a spa onsite whenever folks want to get off their feet and take a break. The BottleRock spa will offer everything from foot massages to mini facials. There is a barbershop and a shampoo & chardonnay station. The festival also has a place for henna and even rapid recovery hydration solutions. In short, guests will have everything they need at the festival and can even take some time to pamper themselves during the weekend.

(Silent) Disco!

Even if the name of the BottleRock Festival implies a lot of rock music, the festival will actually offer a diverse array of musical tastes. This includes a dance party with great DJs and EDM music getting everyone in a dancing mood. At the same time, the BottleRock Festival also has a silent disco, supplying guests with their own headphones so that they can drift away into their own world without the ruckus of a dance club around them.

Getting Tickets

For anyone finding out about the BottleRock Festival at the last minute or who had a chance of plans that freed them up for that weekend, it’s easy to find tickets to the festival on the secondary market. The great thing about the three-day festival is that visitors can buy a three-day pass or only buy a ticket for one or two specific days. If you only like the musical acts on Friday, you can buy a ticket for Friday and spend the rest of the weekend doing something else. If you’re only free on Sunday, you can get a Sunday-only ticket and enjoy the final day of the festival. Of course, the best value for the BottleRock Festival is getting a three-day pass. There are also VIP tickets available if you want an extra-special experience.

Traveling to the Festival

Once you have your BottleRock Festival tickets, you’ll want to make plans for getting to the Napa Valley Expo. There is both general admission parking available and street parking in downtown Napa. Just keep in mind that overnight parking isn’t allowed. The festival is also offering daily bus service from San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose, Sonoma, Mill Valley, Sacramento, Fairfield, Santa Rosa, and Palo Alto, making it easy for anyone from the areas around Napa Valley to get to the festival. There are also free rides and late-night services on Napa’s VINE Transit. That includes service to BART for anyone in the Bay Area. The BottleRock Festival also encourages car-pooling and ride-sharing for anyone coming to the festival from outside Northern California or the Bay Area.
