Planning Your Weekend

Now, let’s talk logistics. As seasoned festival-goers know, a little preparation goes a long way in ensuring a smooth and stress-free experience. Here are some pro tips to help you make the most of your Bottlerock adventure:

  1. Buy Your Tickets Early: Don’t wait until the last minute to snag your tickets! With the festival’s growing popularity, passes tend to sell out fast. General Admission tickets can be purchased on their website.
  2. Accommodation: Whether you prefer the comfort of a hotel room or the camaraderie of camping with fellow music lovers, Napa offers a plethora of accommodation options to suit every budget. Book your stay well in advance to avoid disappointment. We recommend our San Francisco Tradewinds Hostel for a budget-friendly stay. Otherwise, check out hotels or Airbnb options in the surrounding area. Bottlerock does a great job of offering a list of hostels in the area that offer shuttles.
  3. Transportation: With any festival, parking can be a bit of a hassle. Consider carpooling with friends, utilizing rideshare services, or leaving early. And, who knows? You might just stumble upon an impromptu pre-show jam session along the way!
  4. Hydration and Sun Protection: With the California sun shining down, it’s crucial to stay hydrated and protected. Bring along a reusable water bottle to refill at the free water stations scattered throughout the festival grounds, and don’t forget to slather on that sunscreen to keep those UV rays at bay.
  5. Make it a Wine Weekend: Napa Valley is filled with incredible wineries. From big-bodied reds to light and crisp whites, there are plenty of wonderful wines being grown in this area. We recommend taking a day to explore some of the nearby wineries. One of our favorites is Stag’s Leap, which is one of California’s earliest wine estates. It’s a must-visit!
