On Monday, BottleRock Napa Valley announced the lineup for its 2023 music festival. The headliners appeal to multiple generations, from younger pop acts Post Malone, Lil Nas X and Lizzo to established rock acts Red Hot Chili Peppers, Duran Duran and Smashing Pumpkins. 

The three-day festival is slated to take place Memorial Day weekend, May 26-28, at the Napa Valley Expo. This is the festival’s 10th anniversary, with over 75 acts scheduled to perform. 

Other exciting artists in the lineup include Leon Bridges, Wu-Tang Clan, The National, Sheryl Crow, Carly Rae Jepsen and Japanese Breakfast. Headliner Red Hot Chili Peppers last played the festival in 2016; the band was scheduled to perform at the canceled 2020 festival. 

“We look for cutting-edge artists,” BottleRock CEO Dave Graham told the Napa Valley Register, “but we always want to have something for our older fans.”

A few Bay Area acts are also in the lineup, such as psych-soul supergroup Moonalice, Oakland rapper Oke Junior, Napa rock band Mama Said and the Napa Valley Youth Symphony.

Three-day BottleRock tickets go on sale Tuesday, Jan. 10, at noon. General admission tickets cost $389 per person, and VIP tickets are $979 per person; the priciest option, Platinum access, costs $5,495 per person.
