Giving Back & Sustainability

Waste Reduction & Recycling


BottleRock is proud to partner with BYOBottle, a music industry effort to turn the tide on plastic pollution. No plastic water bottles are sold at the festival and we banned plastic straws! Guests are encouraged to bring their own empty bottle or hydration pack from home and fill up water for free at any of our refill stations. #BYOBottle

We also partner with Zero Hero and Napa Recycling to maximize the amount we recycle and compost on site and divert as much waste away from landfill as possible. All food and beverages are served on fully compostable serve-ware. 

Our partner govino provides commemorative reusable wine cups for guests to enjoy delicious Napa Valley wines. All concession stands are able to refill govino wine cups instead of using a new cup. govinos can be taken home as souvenirs or can be recycled.




We always encourage the use of alternative transportation like buses, carpooling, cycling and walking. Through our 2018 ticketed daily bus service from cities around Northern California, BottleRockers kept over 2,260 cars off the road. Plus, more than 650 fans rode their bikes to the festival each day reducing carbon emissions.

North Bay Fire Relief


In fall 2017, BottleRock Presents promoted and co-promoted a series of benefit concerts to support North Bay Fire Relief efforts – For The Love Of Sonoma featuring Counting Crows, For The Love Of Napa featuring Michael Franti & Spearhead, a benefit concert featuring Train and Band Together Bay Area featuring headliner Metallica. The benefit concerts raised $23.4 million to support the Tipping Point Emergency Relief Fund, The Napa Valley and Sonoma County Community Foundations, along with The North Bay Fire Relief Fund and NomaGives.




Locally Fueled


We make it a priority to showcase everything the Napa Valley has to offer and keep things local. We work with over 50 Napa Valley wineries and restaurants to keep fans fueled during the festival.




Family Affair


We invite the future generation to participate in BottleRock’s celebration of music, culture and community. In 2018, 870 kids were registered in the LittleRockers program, which was introduced for guests 6 years and younger so Festival staff can reconnect separated families.
