Metallica will be joined by P!nk, Twenty One Pilots, and Luke Combs as headliners for the ninth BottleRock Napa Valley music festival, which will return to its traditional schedule on Memorial Day weekend after two years of disruption and postponement due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The festival of music, wine, and food will be held May 27-29 at the Napa Valley Expo at 575 Third St. in downtown Napa, organizer Latitude 38 Entertainment announced. Three-day festival tickets will go on sale starting at 10 a.m. Tuesday, January 11, at the BottleRock Napa Valley website.
Other highlights of BottleRock’s 2022 slate of more than 75 musical acts will include The Black Crowes, Kygo, Pitbull, Greta Van Fleet, Mount Westmore (featuring Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, E-40 and Too $hort), Rainbow Kitten Surprise, CHVRCHES and Bleachers.
“We’re happy to be bringing the first taste of summer back to music fans here in the Napa Valley,” Dave Graham, one of Latitude 38’s three managing partners, said in a statement. “As fans have come to expect, our 2022 lineup has something for everyone, featuring a wide variety of genres that offer legendary performers with some of the most exciting new and emerging artists in the world.”
Also returning to BottleRock is the Williams Sonoma Culinary Stage, which hosts cooking demonstrations with renowned chefs, celebrities, performers and rock stars. Details on the Culinary Stage will be announced at a later date.
Latitude 38 directors said BottleRock will follow all local and state COVID-19 health and safety guidelines in place at the time of the festival, and will communicate all requirements to ticket holders before the festival.
After postponing and then canceling the 2020 BottleRock, organizers moved back the 2021 festival by more than three months to September 3-5. BottleRock became by far the Napa Valley’s largest spectator gathering after California reopened its economy in mid-June and lifted strict crowd-size limits it had imposed in March 2020 to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
