BottleRecap

BottleRock 2014 has come and gone. While we do not have specifics on the financial results of the 3-day festival, the general consensus is that the event was a success. More importantly, the residual bad-taste from Bottlerock 2013 has been erased. We were there Friday night and it was great! The Cure played an amazing 2 ½ hour set that ended with a power pull…Latitude 38 (festival organizers) promised neighbors the show would end at 10pm and it did, even if The Cure continued to sing. Attendance was somewhere in the 70,000-80,000 range, according to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat and the Napa Valley Register. The largest complaints were due to traffic congestion and long waits for shuttle buses to remote parking areas. Arrests were minimal and the majority of the vendors have been paid (according the Santa Rosa Press Democrat 6/1/14). The organizers have committed to Bottlerock 2015 and are very pleased with this year’s event. Looks like Napa will continue to hold this annual nod to that perfect combination of wine, music and the great outdoors.
