BottleRock in Napa Valley is this weekend! The 3-day festival starts Friday, May 24 and runs through Sunday, May 26. There's tons of music, food, wine, and so much more. Morning show producer Karena Velazquez goes every year and says it's a festival you don't want to miss.
A few headliners include Imagine Dragons, Neil Young, Santana, and Pharrell Williams. Alice Cooper will also be entertaining the Williams Sonoma Culinary Stage with a special performance.
New for 2019! After the final Williams Sonoma Culinary Stage performance on Sunday afternoon, there will be an entertaining evening performance by Alice Cooper and Andrew Zimmern who will be making a special Guinness World Record attempt! This special performance was designed and produced by the BottleRock team through their relationship with Cooper and Zimmern, and will happen at 7:30pm on the fifth stage, located in the culinary garden.
