2016 has only just begun stretching its limbs, yet festival season is already off to a hectic start. Last evening saw Coachella release their latest lineup — a real doozy featuring the return of both LCD Soundsystem and Guns N’ Roses, as well as the first US performance by The Last Shadow Puppets and the first live concert by Sia in half a decade, among other notable acts. Bottlerock Napa Valley, the weekend-long culinary and music festival with a heart for the 90s and wine, followed suit and dropped their own lineup yesterday morning.
Where Coachella crowds skew younger and the lineup is notably packed to the brim with everything both happening and having happened in music, Bottlerock tends to appeal to older generations with more calm and consistent tastes. Now in its fourth year, Bottlerock (presented by JaM Cellars) continues to solidify its image as the Bay’s aged-like-wine take on modern music festival culture. The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stevie Wonder, and Florence + The Machine headline this year, with Death Cab For Cutie, Lenny Kravitz, Walk the Moon, The Joy Formidable, and many other slated to perform. Check out the full lineup below. Tickets go on sale this Thursday, January 7th at 10AM PST, and the event takes place May 27th-29th.
