More than a dozen of the America’s funniest minds will bring their collective funny bone to the comedy stage at the inaugural BottleRock Napa Valley May 9 – 12, in the city of Napa in the heart of legendary Napa Valley. Headliners announced today include: Jim Gaffigan, Demetri Martin, Aasif Mandvi, Anthony Jeselnik, Tig Notaro, Jim Breuer, Greg Behrendt, Wyatt Cenac, Rob Delaney, Kristen Schaal, Bill Burr, Natasha Leggero and J Chris Newberg. At least three comedy shows will take place daily on the BottleRock comedy stage at the Napa Valley Expo, the festival’s home.
“We included a comedy stage to BottleRock Napa Valley, not only because we are big fans of comedy, but because it offers a bit of a respite – a recharging station, if you will,” stated festival founder Gabe Meyers of WillPower Entertainment. “BottleRock comedy will take place indoors at one of the larger buildings at the Napa Valley Expo. It will be a great spot to grab a seat, have some laughs with world-class comedians, and get ready for more incredible music on one of our outdoor stages. It’s another feature we are providing to ensure BottleRock is a very comfortable festival for our attendees.”
In addition to the comedic infusion, BottleRock Napa Valley features a stellar lineup of more than 60 artists, bands and performers, including; Kings of Leon, The Black Keys, Zac Brown Band, Furthur featuring Phil Lesh and Bob Weir, Jane’s Addiction, The Shins, The Avett Brothers, Train, The Flaming Lips, The Black Crowes, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Cake, Ben Harper & Charlie Musselwhite, Primus, Alabama Shakes, Jackson Browne, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Dirty Projectors, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Dwight Yoakam, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Violent Femmes, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Blues Traveler, Iron & Wine, Grouplove, Cafe Tacuba, The Wallflowers, Brandi Carlile, Bad Religion, Andrew Bird, Matt Nathanson, X, and many more.
