Napa, Calif (PRWEB) May 02, 2013
Located just a short drive from three international airports, Downtown Napa is the premier destination for the discerning music and entertainment fan. With three major event venues and one of the largest music festivals in Northern California, BottleRock, Downtown Napa hosts national and up-and-coming acts like Alabama Shakes, The Black Keys, Dirty Projectors, Jim Gaffigan, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Naughty by Nature and many more. This one-of-a-kind experience provides not only a refuge from the crowds, but also year-round entertainment that stacks up to major cities.
BottleRock, May 9-12, 2013, will bring today's hottest artists in music, food and wine to tens of thousands of fans right in the heart of Downtown Napa. Avoid the rather extreme weather conditions of world class music festival locations, as mid-May in Napa typically offers gorgeous 75-degree days and comfortable nights. In addition to the 60 bands on three stages, the festival also features unique events like "Live Lunches." Live Lunches will host BottleRock artists playing acoustic sets at select premiere partner wineries.

With 860 comfortable theater seats, this venue provides patrons a truly unique and enjoyable concert experience even during their many sold-out shows. The modern art-deco theater features artists and entertainers like Margaret Cho, Naughty by Nature, Jewel, Jeff Bridges & The Abiders and many other acts across the spectrum. Dating back to the 1930’s, stars such as Clark Gable and Carol Lombard used to frequent the theater as a part of their Northern California excursions.
