A brand new music and arts festival is in the works for the West Coast this May — The Bottle Rock Napa Valley Music and Arts Festival. The three-day event will take place in Napa Valley, CA on May 10th-12th with tickets going on sale in early February. The first six acts were just announced as , , Cake, The , Ben Harper and Mavis Staples. The event promises 40+ bands, 300+ wineries, 100’s of culinary choices, 13 of the funniest people in comedy, and North Bay brewers. The organizers will release five more bands each day this week on San Francisco’s @KFOG Radio. Looks like one-helluva debut event for Northern California.

As one of our festival-going contributors @JasonSpang pointed out, it’ll be interesting to see how traffic will be dealt with in the valley. There is only one road in and one road out. Big Cypress anyone?
