BottleRock Napa Valley has been officially postponed to Memorial Day weekend of 2021, the weekend of May 28. While the full lineup has yet to be confirmed, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Dave Matthews Band and Stevie Nicks have all been confirmed as headliners for the festival. Patrons who have already purchased tickets to the festival can use their tickets for the 2021 edition.
“Although Napa County has one of the lowest COVID-19 case counts in the Bay Area, we are not ready for a large public gathering such as BottleRock Napa Valley in 2020,” noted County Public Health Officer Dr. Karen Relucio. “Events like BottleRock fall under Governor Newsom’s Stage 4 plan for re-opening, which we will not achieve prior to October. These decisions are not taken lightly with the knowledge that many people will be impacted. Our first priority is the health of the community.”
The festival is confident that they will be able to retain most of the acts that were set to play the original festival, writing “we are also confident that . . . we be able to present much of the same lineup.” The festival also noted that they plan on having some surprise performances for the 2021 edition of the festival.
BottleRock is expected to make an announcement regarding the full lineup in the future.
