Organizers for Northern California’s BottleRock festival originally announced the event will take place in October after “careful consideration and in coordination with our local and state authorities.” Instead of May 22-24, BottleRock Napa was then scheduled to take place from Oct. 2-4 at the Napa Valley Expo.
“We made this decision with the safety and best interests of our fans, musicians, partners, employees, and community being paramount,” organizers said in a release. “We are committed to putting on the festival to not only share great music and the incredible Napa Valley hospitality, but because it’s vitally important to the livelihood of all those who make BottleRock Napa Valley the festival it is.”
All original headliners from the May edition of the festival including Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stevie Nicks, Dave Matthews Band, Miley Cyrus, Khalid, Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals and Zedd were scheduled to return to Napa in October.
Passes for the May dates will be valid in October and ticketholders who can not attend the festival on its new dates will be emailed about refunds and exchanges soon, according to the festival.
