This Memorial Day weekend, you can start your summer off on a high note at BottleRock in Napa Valley.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Post Malone, The Smashing Pumpkins, Lizzo, Duran Duran and Lil Nas X headline this year’s BottleRock festival and chefs Roy Choi, Andrew Zimmern and Marcus Samuelsson take charge of the Culinary Stage. 

The sprawling green festival grounds are full of beer, wine, craft beer and cocktails. Wine from Jam Cellars, Caymus Vineyards and Levendi Winery and cocktails made with Hendricks Gin, Kettle One Vodka and Don Julio Tequila are just a few of the sips to taste, and for a refreshing alcohol free treat stop by The Garden for a specialty mocktail. Jam Cellars and multiple other Bay Area music venues keep BottleRock going until the late hours of the night with individual After Dark performances.

BottleRock is an interactive escapade with Instagram worthy photo opportunities.
