BottleRock festival announces headliners

By From page A3 | March 15, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Reunited Atlanta hip-hop duo OutKast, English rockers The Cure and North Carolina-born country star Eric Church were announced Friday as headliners for the second BottleRock Napa Music Festival.

The festival is under new management after the 2013 installment’s debt ballooned to as much as $8 million, according to Pollstar, a concert industry trade publication. The new organizers, Napa-based Latitude 38 Entertainment, retained the name as well as some equipment, but fiscal responsibility for the debt belongs to the previous managers, BR Festivals.

Nearly 40 acts are scheduled to perform at the three-day event from May 30 to June 1 at the Napa Valley Expo in Napa.

    How sad, they bought the name from the guys who did not pay hardly anyone... And want to make sure we all know they have no responsibility for the hundreds of people who did not get paid. Why use the name Bottle Rock after such an negative history of the promotors from last year? Especially since you took a cutting edge, top tier line-up from 2013 and have turned it into a collection of County Fair, 90's one hit wonder bands... All that is missing is Train and Hootie and the Blowfish... To all vendors, get your money up front!
