The Killers, Bruno Mars, Muse Set For BottleRock Napa Festival
Tickets go on sale Jan. 9 for this summer's BottleRock Napa Valley music festival, which combines music, food, wine, and brew for "the first taste of summer" May 25-27, and the lineup is quite enticing. Announced this morning, top headliners for the festival's sixth year will be the Killers, Bruno Mars, and Muse.
Additional performers for 2018 are The Chainsmokers, Halsey, Incubus, and Snoop Dogg. But that's only a few items still at the top of 2018's extensive menu. The fest's Williams-Sonoma Culinary Stage complements the feast for the ears and has included many artists participating in cooking demonstrations.

"The theme this year is very fun and upbeat," said CEO Dave Graham. "There's going to be a lot of dancing this year and we're delighted with what we're delivering."
Earth, Wind & Fire, Billy Idol, and electronica duo Thievery Corporation add some familiar favorites to the bill while Lukas Nelson (son of Willie Nelson) will be on hand with his band Promise Of The Real to provide next-generation country/rock flavor. Local fans are bound to support their Napa Valley Youth Symphony, the existence of which testifies to the community's cultural appetites while visitors from all over will be sure to sample the dozens of emerging artists scheduled to play this May, some bound to leave festival goers wanting more.
