BottleRock Festival Announces Guns n’ Roses, Stevie Nicks and Foo Fighters as 2021 Headliners

By Cicero A. Estrella

BottleRock Napa Valley is back—albeit a little later than usual this year—and the lineup is set.

Organizers earlier this week announced this year’s performers and, as usual, they include a wide range of acts to satisfy the taste of all music lovers.

Classic rockers Guns n’ Roses, Stevie Nicks and Foo Fighters are the headliners of the three-day event from Sept. 3-5 at the Napa Valley Expo. Also atop the bill are Miley Cyrus, Megan Thee Stallion, G-Eazy, Run the Jewels, Brandi Carlile, Cage the Elephant, Portugal. the Man, Young the Giant, Maren Morris and more.

Three-day tickets will be available for purchase May 20, but eager fans can pre-register at Three-day tickets range from $369 to $4,350. Single-day tickets will be released on May 27.

The popular music and food festival had been a Memorial Day weekend staple since 2013, but the global COVID-19 pandemic necessitated a number of cancellations and postponements since 2020. While it helped usher in the summer season in the past, it is being billed this year as “the last taste of summer” with its move to the Labor Day weekend.

The lineup has also been tweaked. Guns n’ Roses and Foo Fighters are among the new additions, and previously announced acts such as Dave Matthews Band and Red Hot Chili Peppers are out.

Also appearing this year are Black Pumas, Mavis Staples, Future Islands, Jimmy Eat World, Village People and Digable Planets. The daily lineups will be announced later this month.
