“The genesis of BottleRock springs from the great live entertainment gift that is the 
Uptown Theatre. 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,” 
said BottleRock Co-Founder Gabriel Meyers. “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. 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. BRNV will be a different kind of music festival by virtue 
of its location in the Valley and Downtown Napa. Where else will you see winemakers, 
chefs, and artists mingling with patrons before, during and after the music? The chance 

to raise money for all of our community and charitable partners is really exciting and 
motivating as well.” 

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 and the many downtown Napa Hotels.
