“We are thrilled about this year’s lineup featuring world-renowned artists who combined have won 39 Grammy, Billboard Music and American Music Awards and received 150 nominations,” said Dave Graham, CEO of BottleRock Napa Valley and BottleRock Presents in a statement. “In addition to the incredible music, we aim to make the guest experience the best in the business, giving all of our attendees access to the extraordinary food, wine, craft brew, spirits and hospitality they have come to expect from BottleRock Napa Valley.”
After BottleRock’s inaugural year, Napa Valley entrepreneurs Graham, Justin Dragoo and Jason Scoggins formed Latitude 38 Entertainment and acquired the BottleRock brand in 2013.
Last year, Live Nation, the world’s largest ticket promoter, acquired a major stake in Latitude 38.
