BottleRock 2024 is May 24-26.
There will be free Wi-Fi powered by Cisco at BottleRock.
Keep your personal belongings secure and your phone charged by reserving a personal locker with all-day access to your locker and cell charging stations. Reserve one for 2023 here.
Information about ticket types can be found on the Festival Tickets page.
A ticketed adult may bring up to one child that is 5 years old and under for free with a photocopy of birth certificate or valid passport/ID (born on or before May 2019). To receive the complimentary child’s wristband, the adult and child must check in at the LittleRockers tent outside of 3rd street gate. All guests 6 and over must have a paid wristband to enter the festival.
Adults can register their children of all ages at the LittleRockers check-in tent and receive a specialized wristband. The LittleRockers wristband is used for safety – in the event that a child gets lost, staff can reunite them with their registered parent. We strongly encourage that all parents register their child at the LittleRockers booth.
You should receive your order confirmation immediately upon purchase of your tickets via Front Gate.
If you purchased a ticket and did not receive your e-mail confirmation, you may have entered your email address incorrectly on Front Gate. Please update your account information here to retrieve your ticket confirmation.
Your purchase of BottleRock Napa tickets is subject to our purchase terms which contain, among other things, a strict prohibition on ticket resale. BottleRock does NOT work with resellers or secondary market websites in any capacity. We offer our own ticket exchange solution powered by our technology partner Lyte.
Upon completion of your ticket purchase, you will receive an order confirmation number and receipt via email from Front Gate. Wristbands are shipped to ticketholders before the festival – no printed tickets will be issued for this event. Your wristband is your ticket into the festival.
Once you receive your wristband, do not try it on. The clasp slides one way and there is no way to remove it or loosen it without damaging the wristband.
Wristbands are non-removable and non-transferable and must not be tampered with in any way. If you are a 3-day passholder, your 3-day wristband grants you admission for all three days. If you are a 1-day passholder, your 1-day wristband grants you admission on the day shown on the wristband.
You must wear your wristband at all times at the festival. Do not cut off or remove your wristband until you leave the festival for the final time.
Lost, stolen, damaged and tampered with wristbands will only be replaced at the discretion of festival staff. The wristband replacement fee is $20.
BottleRock is a fully accessible event, and we are dedicated to continually improving our efforts to ensure you have access to all the festival amenities. We welcome and encourage all feedback and suggestions from our patrons. The following explains the services provided this year. For any accessibility-related questions and/or needs please email ADA@bottlerocknapa.com. We will do our best to help you have an awesome experience at BottleRock!

Additionally, this is the location to recharge wheelchair batteries and/or the other assistive technology requiring electrical recharging, as well as storing equipment.
Accessible Viewing Areas: There will be accessible viewing areas made available to ADA patrons who may need to see above the crowd on the main stage and/or those who have mobility limitations.

Patrons should bring all cords and accessories needed to charge their devices. Chargers must use a 110-volt, 20 amp circuit. We do not provide personal assistance or mobility device rentals.
Parking: BottleRock has a very limited amount of ADA Parking available at the festival. To park in this lot, you will need to purchase a BottleRock ADA Parking Pass and bring your valid disabled persons parking permit, placard, or plate.
Please note that it is against the law to park in an accessible parking space without the required ADA credentials or to fraudulently use someone else’s in order to gain access to ADA parking spots. All placards will be checked for validity by the Napa Police Department upon arrival.
ADA parking will be located near the main entrance to the Festival. More detailed instructions will be provided upon purchasing a parking pass. Parking passes will go on sale closer to the festival.
Persons with disabilities and their service animals that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for those persons with disabilities are welcome at BottleRock, as are those training service animals. However, emotional support animals, therapy animals, companion animals, and pets are not permitted into the event. Any animal whose task is to provide protection, emotional support, well-being, comfort, or companionship is not considered a service animal and will not be allowed into the venue. Only service animals that have been individually trained and are under the proper care of their owners will be allowed within the premises.
The following guidelines must be followed:
- All service animals must be verified by the ADA Coordinator or Manager before entering the event venue.
- Once verified, service animal handlers are required to fill out a Service Animal Agreement before proceeding into the event grounds. Once signed, service animals will receive a service animal wristband or tag to indicate verification.
- Service animals must remain by the handler’s side at all times and must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered. If these devices interfere with the service animal’s work or if the handler’s disability prevents the use of these devices, the handler must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal, or other effective controls.
- Service animals must be housebroken and should use the service animal relief area.
- Anyone bringing an animal will be responsible for and liable for any damage or injury caused by the animal.
- All service animals should have legally required vaccinations. The ADA Coordinator or Manager may ask for proof of vaccination during the verification process.
