The cultures of wine and music are fused at the hip -- some say chefs are the new rock stars. So with that in mind, organizers of BottleRock Napa Valley are blending it all together with an entire stage dedicated to melding the worlds of food and music at the May 29-31 festival. 

A-list chefs on the Williams-Sonoma Culinary Stage include Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, Michael Mina of the Mina Group, Iron Chef Marc Forgione, two Michelin-star chef Dominique Crenn of Atelier Crenn, Top Chef Michael Voltaggio, Larry Forgione of the Culinary Institute of America, Top Chef Mei Lin, Michelin-star chefs Brandon Sharp of Solbar, Ken Frank of La Toque, and Robert Curry of Auberge du Soleil, 11-time World Pizza Champion Tony Gemignani, Bryan Forgione of Buddy V’s, Rick Moonen of rm Seafood, Oenotri’s Tyler Rodde, and Dario De Conti of Ca’Momi. The Williams-Sonoma Culinary Stage will be located in the Whole Foods Restaurant Garden at the festival. 

Snoop Dogg, Flavor Flav, Michael Franti are among the big names confirmed for next month’s fest in downtown Napa, California. But they’ll be on tap for more than just rapping and rocking. They’ll join the likes of Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Portugal. The Man and Scott Weiland for “mashup moments” on the Williams-Sonoma Culinary Stage.

So what will happen when musicians take the stage with celebrity chefs? We're told the musicians will complement the cooking process in new and unexpected ways, but you'll have to wait until May 29-31 to find out exactly how that breaks down. 

More than 70 artists, bands and performers will perform at BottleRock Napa Valley, including Imagine Dragons, No Doubt, Robert Plant and Public Enemy. The three day fest runs May 29 through 31. The complete lineup and ticket details can be found at
