BottleRock has quickly become a marquee event here in Napa. So it’s with some sadness, but not much surprise, that the three-day musical festival will not happen in May as originally planned.

Instead, organizers today announced BottleRock will take place in the Fall, October 2-4, 2020.

From the announcement on the BottleRock web site:

We made this decision with the safety and best interests of our fans, musicians, partners, employees, and community being paramount. We are committed to putting on the festival to not only share great music and the incredible Napa Valley hospitality, but because it’s vitally important to the livelihood of all those who make BottleRock Napa Valley the festival it is.

Headliners Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stevie Nicks, Dave Matthews Band, Miley Cyrus, Khalid, Anderson .Paak, The Free Nationals, Zedd and others have already confirmed for the rescheduled date.
