So who the hell is paying for this Bottle Rock Napa Valley festival? There is a huge amount of expensive ass bands on this bill. Saturday alone has three previous Sasquatch headliners.
They seem to be going for broke on this and it will either be a huge success or a huge failure. The lineup seems to be all over the place and I wouldn't go even if I lived there, so I'm betting on the failure side of things.
I think you're right it'll be a failure, but not 'cause of the line up. The line up might be "all over" but it's decent at least. But it'll fail 'cause it's freakin' exspensive! Four day pass is $399 and it doesn't include any of the delicious food or wine they're selling. If there was some sort of a "sampler" of the food/alcohol included, since it is a festival about music and food and wine ect., then I'd consider it (if I lived nearby).
Also, that was one of the worst websites I've been to; extremely difficult to navigate and kinda looked like an amateur blog.

Yeah, I've been creepin on this Bottle Rock festival thing for a while. They were super secretive about ticket prices until recently and the cheapest are $399 for the weekend. I laughed out loud in my office when I saw that. I want to see Iron & Wine and Sharon Van Etten and a couple others (primus, FLAMING FUCKING LIPS) but there's no way.
I will say that Napa is a weird place, with lots of rich people who think they're really down to earth and cool but definitely are not. I think some tickets will sell. But I'd be surprised if this happened again next year.
