BottleRock Napa Valley is an annual music festival held at the Napa Valley Expo in Napa, California.

The initial BottleRock was a 5-day event that took place 8–12 May 2013. The event featured 3 stages with 60 bands, including Jackson Browne, Train, The Black Crowes, Zac Brown Band, The Shins, Primus, The Avett Brothers, Joan Jett, Cake, Jane's Addiction, The Flaming Lips, Kings of Leon, The Black Keys, Alabama Shakes, The Iron Heart, Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite. Furthur had been scheduled, but withdrew from the lineup due to an injury and health issues suffered by Bob Weir. It was the Napa Valley's first large-scale music festival. 40 local wineries were featured at the festival. Although the festival attracted over 120,000 attendees and generated mostly positive reviews, several vendors and workers claim to have been left unpaid by organizers following the event. Estimates of well over $2.5 million for unpaid wages and services are being claimed by creditors including the City of Napa, venue provider Napa Valley Expo, a variety of security, catering and transportation companies, a local of International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees and individuals. To resolve financial woes, subsequent festival proceeds were used to partially pay off debts.


A 2014 concert, organized by new ownership, took place on May 30-June 1. The lineup of acts included The Cure, OutKast, Weezer, LL Cool J, Heart, Sublime with Rome, Third Eye Blind, De La Soul and Eric Church along with more than 45 additional artists and groups. Promoters for the 2014 event have indicated that they would pay off part of the unpaid debts incurred by the 2013 promoters. The event was held May 30-June 1, 2014, at the Napa Valley Expo center.
