With Coachella and Bonnaroo’s impending lineup announcements, it feels like 2022’s festival season is about to fly into overdrive with lineups dropping every other day. Despite fears of the omicron variant screwing things up, it feels like we’re full steam ahead on this year’s concert season.
Bottlerock in Napa Valley is going down May 27-29 of this year, and the lineup is predictably eclectic and would make for an entertaining trip out west this summer. Headliners include Metallica, P!nk, Twenty One Pilots, and Luke Combs, and the undercard pulls together wildly disparate acts like Bleachers, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, Greensky Bluegrass, and uh, Pitbull (?). There are even some lower-tier favorites of ours on there like Tai Verdes, The Happy Fits, and FLETCHER. All in all, it’s pretty good!
