My life is officially complete! America’s wine country officially has its own music festival! Just last month Napa Valley held its first ever 5-day music, food, wine, comedy and beer festival with over forty bands, 300 wineries, Napa’s finest culinary talents, and exclusive comedy shows. Welcome to the Bottle Rock Celebration!
Thanks to WillPower Events, BottleRock Napa Valley was created for a good cause. For every ticket purchased the festival donated a portion of its proceeds to support the local community as well as to raise awareness, and support for many smaller non-profits, and charities (Celebrating the art of music and wine never felt so good). To see a list of the non-profit partners and benefit groups check out the BottleRock Causes page here: www.bottlerocknapavalley.com/causes.
With three main stages spread over 26 acres of the Napa Expo, musical talent rocked the vineyards for an estimated 40,000 attendees while the “comedy closet” simultaneously hosted some of the industries finest comedians including Natasha Leggero, Anthony Jeselnik, Bill Burr, Jim Gaffigan and Wyatt Cenac.
